In seeking to educate myself re Malalignment syndrome, this site for MMS proposes foot surgery to drive the realigment. This site also looks like a vendor site, and also mentions that MMS, as they call it leads to as shortened lifespan (yikes!). The device is hyprocure and tries to get at the cause, (although I think the cause starts with the femur, myself). Although I like that they say they are trying to end it.

Wondering if anyone ever heard of this device or had one? Thanks much.

I've seen the site and I think its a relatively new one. None of the research articles to support their product have been published. In any event, I don't have flat feet so didn't feel the company had anything to offer me.
