To evaluate the effect of wearing the 'Nike Free'Shoe on isokinetic muscle strength of foot and ankle and on proprioception the following protocol will be used.
The test population consists out of students of the physical education department. They will at random be divided in three groups. One group will wear the shoe only for daily activities, the second group will wear the shoes for the warming up part of the sport classes and the control group will not wear the shoe at all. There will be two moments for evaluation: one at the beginning of the study and one after four months, during which the shoe will be used. The isokinetic strength will be measured with an isokinetic device (Biodex) and the proprioception will be evaluated with a force platform (Neurocom Balance Master).
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The purpose of this research is to investigate the differences of landing patterns while running in different speed with barefoot and wearing shoe.
Some people experience a cramp-like leg pain during walking that is relieved only by rest. This is called intermittent claudication (IC) and it is a common symptom of peripheral arterial d...
Offloading is the concept of relieving pressure to help prevent/cure plantar ulcers, especially in diabetic patients. Many forms of offloading are available, with many limitations to apply...
Patients often seek advice from their treating doctor if they are able to drive with a foot orthosis after a first metatarsal osteotomy for symptomatic hallux valgus and/or after an additi...
This trial will assess the ability of shoe inserts to relieve pain and disability in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) in the inner (medial) aspect of the knee.
We investigated the effects of cane use, lateral walking stability, and cane use practice on attentional demands during walking. Attentional demands were assessed using dual-task methodology with a re...
Analysis of in-shoe pressure distribution during sport-specific movements may provide a clue to improve shoe design and prevent injuries. This study compared the mean and the peak pressures over the w...
Load carriage can be harmful for workers, and alternative interventions to reduce back pain while walking and carrying loads are necessary. Unstable shoes have been used to improve balance and reduce ...
Rocker profiles are commonly used in the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers. Rockers are mostly stiffened to restrict toe plantarflexion to ensure proper offloading. It is also described that toe dors...
Elevated heel construction offloads the forefoot after surgery. However, side-to-side height difference alters limb kinetics, whereas leg-length equalizing-sole at non-operated side may have beneficia...
An alternative to REFRACTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES. A therapeutic procedure for correcting REFRACTIVE ERRORS. It involves wearing CONTACT LENSES designed to force corrective changes to the curvature of the CORNEA that remain after the lenses are removed. The effect is temporary but is maintained by wearing the therapeutic lenses daily, usually during sleep.
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
