Understanding Your Feet
If you are considering individually designed Functional Orthotics, a health care professional can perform a foot scan to show you how imbalances in the feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders. The foot scan will show how Functional Orthotics may help. Following a foot scan, a report will provide you a Pronation/Stability Index, a Foot Assessment, and a Body Assessment.

Your Score



The index reveals the severity of pronation/stability in your feet, ranging from Optimal to Severe. An index of 102, for example, is Moderate pronation/instability. Untreated imbalances of any level may lead to chronic problems throughout your body.

Your Feet


The red areas on the V7+ scan show where your feet are applying pressure. Loss of arch height – which shows more red in the middle of the foot, such as the image shown – can cause flattening and rolling of the feet.

The scan also shows the percentage of imbalance for each foot. The higher number indicates greater instability on that side of the body.

Your Body

The body assessment image shows how imbalances in the feet can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt and shoulder drop. These imbalances in the body can be caused by pronation and supination of the foot.

These instabilities can lead to conditions such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and neck pain.

A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. Wearing Functional Orthotics may help alleviate imbalances and conditions caused by those imbalances.
