The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between obesity and flatfoot among high - school students in Rasht (North Province of Iran). 1180 students (726 boys and 454 girls) were selected cluster random sampling. Height and weight of subjects were measured by using standard apparatus. BMI (weight / height 2 ) was considered as the index of obesity .The international BMI cut - off values was used to determine obesity (BMI> 95 th percentile), and foot structure assessment was…
