OBJECTIVE To study posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction using an in vitro model of the foot and ankle during the heel-off instant of gait. BACKGROUND Previous studies have concentrated primarily on the effect of posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction on the kinematics of the hindfoot and the arch. METHODS The specimens were loaded using a custom designed axial and tendon loading system and the location of the center of pressure was used to validate heel-off. Arch position, hindfoot position… CONTINUE READING
