BACKGROUND The prevalence of flatfeet in normal and obese children has not been studied well in the past. The prevalence of flatfoot and foot dimensions of school children in Taiwan were investigated in this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS One thousand twenty-four school children (549 boys and 475 girls) aged 5 to 13 years participated in this study. Fifteen(More)
This study aims to investigate the effects of age, gender and walking speed on the gait performance during walking at a range of percentage of preferred walking speed (PPWS). The subjects were aged from 20 to 60 years and both genders were equally represented. A nested-factorial analysis of variance was employed. The independent variables include walking(More)
Several pairs of enantiomeric α,α'-iminodiacetic acid analogues (2 and 4) were prepared separately by highly diastereoselective 3CR, which involves a reaction of an isocyanide, an aldehyde, and an enantiomerically pure amino acid in methanol. Synthesis of each of the enantiomers was controlled by the configuration of the amino acid; L-amino acid produces(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to investigate the effect of wearing shoes on joint range of motion, ground reaction force (GRF), and muscle activity (electromyography) in children with flat and normal feet during walking. METHODS Nine children with flat feet and 12 children with normal feet aged 5 to 11 years were recruited. Each child was instructed to walk on a(More)
UNLABELLED This study investigates gender and walking speed (80%, 100%, 120% and 140% of preferred walking speed (PWS)) effects on plantar pressure parameters. In total, 30 healthy males and females, aged between 20 to 60 years, participated in this study. A plantar pressure measurement device was used to measure the peak pressure, peak force and contact(More)
