The aim of this study was to characterize the electromyographic (EMG) profile of tibialis posterior during barefoot walking in order to establish a reference database for neutral foot posture. Fifteen participants had their foot posture screened using the six-item Foot Posture Index. Bipolar intramuscular electrodes were inserted into tibialis posterior and(More)
Variations in foot posture, such as pes planus (low-arched foot) or pes cavus (high-arched foot), are thought to be an intrinsic risk factor for injury due to altered motion of the lower extremity. Hence, the aim of this systematic review was to investigate the relationship between foot posture and lower limb kinematics during walking. A systematic database(More)
Variations in foot posture are associated with the development of some lower limb injuries. However, the mechanisms underlying this relationship are unclear. The objective of this study was to compare foot kinematics between normal, pes cavus and pes planus foot posture groups using a multi-segment foot model. Ninety-seven healthy adults, aged 18-47 were(More)
BACKGROUND There is uncertainty as to which foot posture measures are the most valid in terms of predicting kinematics of the foot. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations of clinical measures of static foot posture and mobility with foot kinematics during barefoot walking. METHOD Foot posture and mobility were measured in 97 healthy(More)
Background Variations in foot posture are associated with common lower limb injuries. However, there is uncertainty as to which measure of foot posture is the most valid in terms of predicting 3-dimensional kinematics of the foot. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between measures of static foot posture or foot mobility and kinematic(More)
Background Variations of foot type, such as a lowor high-arched foot, are thought to be an intrinsic risk factor for lower extremity injury. One of the proposed mechanisms by which foot posture may contribute to injury is via altered motion of the lower extremity. Therefore, the aim of this review was to investigate the relationship between foot type and(More)
BACKGROUND This article describes the design of a parallel-group, participant- and assessor-blinded randomised controlled trial comparing the effectiveness of shoe-stiffening inserts versus sham shoe insert(s) for reducing pain associated with first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS Ninety participants with first MTPJ OA will(More)
BACKGROUND Foot posture has been postulated as a risk factor for overuse injuries of the knee, however the link between foot posture and knee joint function is unclear. The aims of this study were to: (i) compare knee adduction moment and knee joint rotations between normal, planus and cavus foot posture groups, and (ii) to determine the relationship(More)
