Rear-foot, mid-foot and fore-foot motion during the stance phase of gait.
This paper proposes a new protocol designed to track a large number of foot segments during the stance phase of gait with the smallest possible number of markers, with particular clinical focus onExpand

Repeatability of a multi-segment foot protocol in adult subjects.
Despite the numerous protocols for multi-segment kinematic analysis of the foot, the literature is scarce regarding relevant measures of reliability. The aim of the present work was to assess theExpand
