Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual analog scale of pain in feet during walking (VAS) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Assessing pain in the feet during walking through a visual analog scale from 0 to 10 centimeter (cm)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Foot Function Index (FFI) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Function of the foot

  • Foot Health Status Questionnaire (FHSQ-Br) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Foot Health Status

  • Health Assessmente Questionnaire (HAQ) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Functional capacity assessed by HAQ in rheumatoid arthritis

  • Visual analog scale of pain in feet at rest (VAS) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Assessing pain in the feet at rest through a visual analog scale from 0 to 10

  • 6-MINUTE WALK TEST [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Assess functional capacity

  • Shorth Form-36 (SF-36) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Quality of life by SF-36

  • LIKERT SCALE [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Likert scale by patients

  • TESTS BAROPODOMETRIC [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Evaluates charge distribution in the feet and gait variables

  • TIME USE OF INSOLE [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Control the use of time insole

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: intervention foot orthoses
Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) insole with medial arch support and bar retrocapital
Other: insoles intervention
EVA insole with arch support and bar retrocapital
Other Name: Interventional group
Placebo Comparator: placebo insole
Foot orthose with support retrocapital and support of medial arch insole intervention
Other: placebo insole
EVA insole flat
Other Name: control group

Detailed Description:

A randomized, controlled, double-blind, prospective trial being conducted involving 80 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, according to American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria, and foot pain, selected from outpatient clinics - Federal University of Sao Paulo (UNIFESP).

Patients will be randomized in to two groups: experimental (40) and control (40).

The experimental group will use ethyl-vinyl acetate (EVA) foot orthoses, with support retrocapital and support of medial arch (insole intervention). The control group will use the same material flat insole (insole placebo).
