Abstract

The cause of foot deformities is contained in insufficient physical activity of children, inadequate diet that increases obesity, as well as uncomfortable and inadequate footwear. Timely diagnosis increases the prevention and remediation of this deformity, which, if not treated properly, causes disruption of other parts of the posture of the body. There are various methods for diagnosing this disorder, from the most complex ones to the simplest ones - which are presented in this paper. Mayer's, Thomsen's, Chizhin's, Russian and German methods are realized with sufficient knowledge, and with minor material and technical requirements. This paper is aimed at presenting and explaining the application of these methods, each of which provides satisfactory indicators of foot deformity and can fully guide the work of the teaching staff. Foot deformity requires a long-term approach to treatment so it needs to be detected as early as possible. As recommended in this paper, this can be done in the fifth grade of elementary school at the latest.
