Influence of Age, Sex, and Anthropometric Determinants on the Foot Posture Index in a Pediatric Population.

Summary of "Influence of Age, Sex, and Anthropometric Determinants on the Foot Posture Index in a Pediatric Population."

The Foot Posture Index (FPI) is a clinical tool for diagnosis that aims to quantify the grade of a foot position as neutral, pronated, or supinated. Its purpose is to develop a simple six-factor method for rating foot posture with an easy and quantitative result. We evaluated possible differences in the FPI by sex and the influences of age, weight, height, foot size, and body mass index (BMI) on foot posture.
