Sometimes it's important to go back to the basics.  The quality of the negative cast is critical to ensure optimum clinical outcomes from functional foot orthoses.  

For best outcomes, the cast must be taken with

  • The subtalar joint in neutral position
  • Midtarsl joint locked
  • First ray plantarflexed to the end of the range of motion.  

There are ten points you should evaluate on every negative cast to ensure that you have captured the correct position.  The short video above reviews each of those points.   If you would like a review of correct casting technique, please watch our instructional casting video.
