BACKGROUND Based on twisted plate and mitered hinge models of the foot and ankle, forefoot-rearfoot coupling motion patterns can contribute to the amount of tibial rotation. The present study determined the differences of forefoot-rearfoot coupling patterns as well as excessive excursion of tibial internal rotation in shod versus barefoot conditions during(More)
Changes in magnitude and timing of rearfoot eversion and tibial internal rotation by foot orthoses and their contributions to vertical ground reaction force and knee joint moments are not well understood. The objectives of this study were to test if orthoses modify the magnitude and time to peak rearfoot eversion, tibial internal rotation, active ground(More)
There is evidence to suggest that navicular drop measures are associated with specific lower-extremity gait biomechanical parameters. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between navicular drop and a) rearfoot eversion excursion, b) tibial internal rotation excursion, c) peak ankle inversion moment, and d) peak knee adduction moment during(More)
The author stresses that this book is written at a basic introductory level: accordingly, the book neither contains a rigorous treatment of the covered theory, nor is the covered theory chosen at a level other than the fundamental concepts of sensitivity theory. It is the reviewer's opinion that the author has accomplished his aims: thus he has written an(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in foot orientation due to orthoses and the relationship with perceived comfort are still unclear in pes cavus. The purpose of this study was to determine the acute changes of fore-foot angles due to the use of custom-made orthoses and their relationship with perceived comfort during standing. METHODS Two photographs were taken using a(More)
