HyProCure® is Scientifically Proven to Stabilize Fallen Arches

The findings of a recent study on the HyProCure® talotarsal fixation device have been published in the Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery (JFAS 50 (2011) 551-557). The purpose of this research, “Radiographic Evaluation of Navicular Position in the Sagittal Plane- Correction Following an Extra-osseous Talotarsal Stabilization Procedure,” was to evaluate the effect of HyProCure® on stabilizing the inner arch of the foot. A secondary question was also answered by this study as to whether collapse of the arch occurs as a direct result of the ankle bone (talus) dislocating on the hindfoot bones or if it is the other way around, the ankle bone dislocates due to the drop of the inner arch. The findings of this study showed that once the ankle bone was repositioned back to its normal position on the heel bone and stabilized by HyProCure®, there was restoration of arch height. Furthermore, the correction to the inner arch was maintained over time. The data for the study was collected by a retrospective x-ray analysis by Dr. Michael E. Graham, podiatric surgeon and inventor of the HyProCure® device.
