Foot Posture Biomechanics – MASS Posture Theory
A new approach to Biomechanics and Orthotics -MASS Posture Theory is unique: it looks at managing foot biomechanics from an engineering perspective. Offering the first credible challenge to the standard, industry techniques originated by Root, Orien and Weed in 1977. MASS (Maximum Arch Supination Stabilization) Posture emphasizes the importance of actually changing the functional posture of the foot in the over-pronator, enabling the healthy levels of supination required for non-pathological gait. For the more rigidly set over-supinator, you will learn about full contact support that disperses plantar pressures evenly, alleviating the “tripod” force concentrations that can be progressively traumatic.
