The foot sole is loaded during stance and gait and plantar cutaneous mechanoreceptors sense the local stress distribution. It is not clear whether the perception thresholds of these mechanoreceptors change during the day and how they respond to walking activities. The primary aim of the present study was to investigate diurnal changes of plantar sensitivity. Furthermore, the aim was to find out whether daily changes depend on the individual level of step activity. Twenty-six healthy subjects… CONTINUE READING
