Hey Gait Guys,
I’ve been reading your blog and listening to your pod-casts (now on 71 but have listened to some new ones too so maybe 10 more to go). I’ve become so much more aware of the body’s biomechanics. Maybe this has been discussed by you guys before but I haven’t come across it yet. I was in Walmart and saw the Dr. Scholl’s foot map system and arch supports. I don’t know if you’ve seen the machine or have tested it out but they are everywhere. I found it interesting that for EVERY foot type they are recommending a ‘specialized’ heel lift. It involves statically standing on the machine on one leg. Interestingly there are handles which one can hold to help support the body on this single leg stance. After listening to so many podcasts and applying my new found knowledge, it immediately raises red flags in my brain. Thought you might be interested.

Hi there Dr Ivo and Dr Allen
I thought this article may interest you.

This last paragraph/quote in particular caught my eye.
I was wondering what your opinion of this would be and wether you agree with it entirely?
Wenger et al (1989) suggest that, since flexible flat foot is generally a benign condition, it rarely requires treatment.
