The purpose

This study compares patient satisfaction in terms of pain relief, mobility and ease of use between 3 commonly used types of post-surgical footwear. This study randomises patients who participate into one of 3 groups of footwear, namely Darco, Podalux or standard dressing shoe. Number of patients enrolled is determined by power calculation. Patients complete a single, simple previously validated questionnaire the MOXFQ (Manchester-Oxford Foot Questionnaire) at their 6 week follow-up appointment and statistical differences between the group are calculated using a significance level of p<0.05. This study will help us determine the best foot-wear to offer the investigators post-surgical patients. This study will form original research.
