The foot is composed of medial, lateral and transverse arches which, particularly the medial arch, provide it with the ability to function both as a flexible and rigid structure for proper locomotion. Arches of the foot, as well as their effect on lower extremity function, have been studied. However, quantitative data on the relationship between these arches still remain scanty. The purpose of this study was, therefore, to examine how the three arches of the foot intercorrelate.

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 metho...
This study evaluated the variation in the protein profile of the acquired enamel pellicle (AEP) formed in vivo according to its location in the dental arches.
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of foot-strike technique on longitudinal arch mechanics and intrinsic foot muscle function during running.
Foot structure has been implicated as a risk factor of numerous overuse injuries, however, the mechanism linking foot structure and the development of soft-tissue overuse injuries are not well underst...
Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a severe and costly complication of diabetes and may result in foot amputation.
The purpose of this research study is to determine the relationships between foot muscle, foot motion, and toe deformity. Results from this investigation will help the investigators to und...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the accuracy of a Smart Foot Mat for signals associated with diabetic foot ulcers in high-risk patients.
Early identification of potential risk factors for the onset of diabetic foot ulcers are recommended. However, in a Swedish context, there has been no standardised routines to be used in t...
This study supports and promotes work well-being of nursing personnel from the perspective of foot health in health care organizations. Half of the participants will receive an electronic ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether regular measurement of skin foot temperature with a novel device (DFUPS) will prevent ulcer recurrence in diabetic patients at high risk...
A condition in which one or more of the arches of the foot have flattened out.
A region, of SOMITE development period, that contains a number of paired arches, each with a mesodermal core lined by ectoderm and endoderm on the two sides. In lower aquatic vertebrates, branchial arches develop into GILLS. In higher vertebrates, the arches forms outpouchings and develop into structures of the head and neck. Separating the arches are the branchial clefts or grooves.
Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
Distortion or disfigurement of the foot, or a part of the foot, acquired through disease or injury after birth.
Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
