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 understood. The aim of this study was to identify factors that could predict foot function during walking.

Lipomas are benign adipose masses that are rarely associated with synovial membranes. In addition, there are only a few reports describing synovial lipomas in the foot. No reported occurrence of this ...
Tibial coronal inclination is often recognized in everyday life, but the compensatory kinematic changes to maintain plantigrade of the hindfoot in response to tibial coronal inclination remain unclear...
To compare the treatment efficacy of spastic flatfoot surgery by 2 different surgical methods: nonfusion subtalar arthroereisis using subtalar joint stabilizer (SJS) and Dennyson-Fulford subtalar arth...
Mechanical properties of an articulated ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) are closely related to gait performance in individuals post-stroke. This paper presents a pilot study on the mechanical properties of ...
Depending on the direction of the subtalar joint, a foot deformity generally tends towards pronation (pes planovalgus) or supination (pes cavovarus). However, the combination of hindfoot varus and fla...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether manipulation of the subtalar joint (one of the two joints of the ankle) has an effect on ankle range of motion in a group of ankles that ha...
The purpose of this study is to describe normal dynamic computed tomography anatomy of hind foot in inversion/eversion movement, and to define diagnostic criteria for subtalar instability.
The study was designed by the principal investigator, Dr. Alastair Younger, and the St. Paul's Hospital Foot and Ankle Research Group, who will conduct the study. The study is being funded...
Range of motion at ankle joint and subtalar joint will be assessed before and after utilization of ARM device. The changes in range of motion will be recorded and compared to literature.
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...
Formed by the articulation of the talus with the calcaneus.
Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.
Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.
