Evaluating the need for orthotic treatment may include the measure of forefoot-to-hindfoot alignment. This paper describes a table-mounted goniometric device that improves intra-rater reliability and simplifies the measurement of forefoot alignment. Instructions for constructing the device are provided. Use of this device may help clinicians evaluate forefoot alignment when making orthotic correction of the foot.
