The purpose of the present study was to provide normative data for foot loading patterns and foot shape parameters in order to support decisions about the normal or abnormal development of the growing foot during childhood. In a longitudinal design, 90 healthy German children were followed over the course of 6-48 months. The children had a mean age of 15 months at the first appointment and 63 months at the last appointment. The children participated in 11 measurement appointments every 3 months… CONTINUE READING
