What Triggers PCI Re-evaluations?

  1. The patient is not responding to the PCIs as manifested in improved response to musculoskeletal therapy.
  1. The patient is complaining about an onset of new or increased pain/symptoms.
  1. The PCIs are becoming less comfortable.


Re-evaluation Procedure

  1. Make certain that the patient is compliant wearing the PCIs. Wearing them 2-3 hours a day, 1-3 days a week is as good as not wearing them at all.
  2. Always measure results according to expectations. The PCI is not an “end all” cure. Maybe all you can expect for a particular patient is percentage improvement.
  3. Use the Patient Diary and dynamic observations to determine if changes to the PCIs are necessary.
  4. Make sure the patient is wearing appropriate footwear.
  5. Consider other factors.


Once the patient is stable, it is a good idea to follow up with each patient every 8-12 months to check if additional Posture Control Insoles™ are needed.

Many conditions contribute to determining the durability of an insole product. The Posture Dynamics Posture Control Insoles™ are designed to hold up to normal wear and tear for a period of 12 - 18 months. Heavy athletic activity such as walking or jogging several miles per week or court sports will contribute to accelerated wear.
