The purpose of this study was to determine the foot strike patterns (FSPs) and neutral support (no INV/EVE and no foot rotation) in children, as well as to determine the influence of shod/unshod condi...
The Achilles tendon is the most common site of tendon overuse injury in humans. Running with a forefoot strike pattern and in minimal shoes is a topic of recent interest, yet evidence is currently lim...
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...
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....
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether changing foot strike pattern from a rearfoot strike to a forefoot strike reduces chronic running-related knee pain. It is believed that sw...
To determine if below-knee amputees will walk with better efficiency wearing a CESR foot which stores energy at heel strike and releases energy releases energy during push-off.
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.
The purposes of this study are 1) to assess foot strike patterns initially, at six months and at one year between two groups of runners attempting to transition to a non-rearfoot strike pa...
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.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.
