STUDY DESIGN Systematic literature review with meta-analysis. OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between nonneutral foot types (high arch and flatfoot) and lower extremity and low back injuries, and to identify the most appropriate methods to use for foot classification. METHODS A search of 5 electronic databases (PubMed, Embase, CINAHL,(More)
This study investigated the between-day reliability of footprint geometric and plantar loading measurements on children utilising the Emed(®) M pressure measurement device. Bilateral footprints (static and dynamic) and foot loading measurements using the two-step gait method were collected on 21 children two days apart (age = 9.9 ± 1.8 years; mass = 34.6 ±(More)
BACKGROUND It is unclear at what age the medial longitudinal arch (MLA) of the foot becomes stable in children. The influence of footwear on MLA development also is unknown. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine the MLA development of children using a longitudinal approach. The relationship between wearing different types of footwear and MLA(More)
Background Foot structure is often classified into flat foot, neutral and high arch type based on the variability of the Medial Longitudinal Arch (MLA). To date, the literature provided contrasting evidence on the age when MLA development stabilises in children. The influence of footwear on MLA development is also unknown. Aim This study aims to (i) clarify(More)
