BACKGROUND The evaluation of foot posture in a clinical setting is useful to screen for potential injury, however disagreement remains as to which method has the greatest clinical utility. An inexpensive and widely available imaging system, the Microsoft Kinect™, may possess the characteristics to objectively evaluate static foot posture in a clinical(More)
Excessive foot pronation has been associated with injuries of the lower extremity. No research has investigated the effect of enhancing plantar sensory feedback on foot pronation. The aim of this study was to determine whether a shoe with enhanced plantar sensory feedback reduces midfoot pronation. Midfoot kinematics and electromyography of the peroneus(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between the phases of the menstrual cycle and injury risk remains unclear. Neuromuscular function may be compromised during menstruation, which could result in reduced cyclicality of movement patterns. We hypothesize that mediolateral (varus/valgus) knee acceleration during running gait will possess increased variability during(More)
This case study reports the kinematic effect of 2 different cricket shoes on a fast bowler who reports a history of posterior ankle joint impingement. The participant bowled 6 trials in 2 pairs of cricket shoes. The 3-dimensional kinematics of the joints of the front leg was quantified during stance phase of the delivery stride. Wearing the high-cut shoe(More)
