PURPOSE Medial longitudinal arch (MLA) strengthening has been considered an important part of successful flatfoot treatment. But, to date, the biomechanical loading behavior of the medial arch in flatfoot has not been evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the MLA moment, MLA deformation angle, foot kinematics and ground reaction forces (GRF) in both normal foot and flatfoot groups. METHODS Each participant's foot was classified according to arch type using foot prints and radiographs… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effect of total-contact orthosis on medial longitudinal arch and lower extremities in flexible flatfoot subjects during walking
TLDR
Positive effects from the customized TCOs were found which included an increased TCO angle that led to a decreased peak MLA moment in the frontal plane in flexible flatfoot subjects during walking.
Adult Acquired Flatfoot Deformity: A Review And Gait Analysis Of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
TLDR
Results from this study showed conclusive changes in foot kinematics and kinetics of PTTD patients during both gait and SLHR, which may be associated with the pathological process of P TTD and provide a more comprehensive understanding in optimizing treatment and standardization of care.
Immediate effect of prefabricated and UCBL foot orthoses on alignment of midfoot and forefoot in young people with symptomatic flexible flatfoot: A radiographic evaluation.
TLDR
Both orthotic conditions improved the talonavicular coverage, first and the second talometatarsal angle, and CAA in young people with SFF in a randomized, crossover study.
A modified and enhanced test setup for biomechanical investigations of the hindfoot, for example in tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis
TLDR
The modified test setup presented here for the hindfoot allows a physiological biomechanical loading and a detailed characterisation of the bone-implant constructs is possible.
Pes Planus (Flat Feet) in Relation to Knee Pain
TLDR
The findings can conclude that there are many factors causing pes planus in an individual, everything from fetal birth to lack of activity, one thing that can be concluded though is that pesPlanus can be a significant factor in chronic knee pain or hip/back pain.
Foot mechanics in young women are altered after walking in high-heeled shoes.
TLDR
The mechanism of foot rolling, with flattened foot arch, and significantly higher values of the vertical component of ground reaction force and shorter time might lead to overload in lowerlimb joints in young women.
Effect of corrective exercises programme among athletes with flat feet on foot alignment factors
TLDR
12 weeks of corrective physical exercises programme for experimental group (EG) significantly improved in angle of arch foot (AAF), navicular height (NAH) and medial longitudinal arch (MLA) of the flat feet players when compare to control group (CG).

Comparison of foot kinematics between subjects with posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction and healthy controls.
TLDR
The abnormal kinematics observed at the rearfoot, midfoot, and forefoot across all phases of stance implicate a failure of compensatory muscle and secondary ligamentous support to control foot kinematic deviations in subjects with stage II PTTD.
Dynamics of longitudinal arch support in relation to walking speed: contribution of the plantar aponeurosis
TLDR
Results give evidence for the existence of a pre‐heel‐strike, speed‐dependent, arch‐stiffening mechanism, and suggest that augmentation of arch height in late stance is enhanced by higher forces exerted by the intrinsic muscles on the plantar aspect of the foot when walking at faster speeds.
Relationship between the Medial Longitudinal Arch Movement and the Pattern of Rearfoot Motion during the Stance Phase of Walking
TLDR
The results indicate that the timing and magnitude of the RF motion were significantly associated with dynamic windlass function.
Effect of arch type and Body Mass Index on plantar pressure distribution during stance phase of gait.
TLDR
Results indicated to the preferable normal arch as this produced a low plantar pressure distribution in all cases, and the 2nd and 3rd metatarsal head region recorded the highest pressure for all arch types during dynamic analysis.
The effects of sectioning the spring ligament on rearfoot stability and posterior tibial tendon efficiency.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the spring ligament complex is the major stabilizer of the arch during midstance and that the posterior tibial tendon is incapable of fully accommodating for its insufficiency, suggesting that the Spring ligament Complex should be evaluated and, if indicated, repaired in flatfoot reconstruction.
Subtalar Pronation — Relationship to the Medial Longitudinal Arch Loading in the Normal Foot
A three-dimensional biomechanical model was used to calculate the mechanical response of the foot to a load of 683 Newtons with the subtalar joint in the neutral position, at five degrees of
