Description

Although the foot is involved in load bearing and shock absorption, foot pressure (FP), ground contact area (CA), and gait cycle (GC) in flatfeet (FF) have not been examined in detail. We aimed to analyze the influence of FF on FP, CA, and GC. We included 20 and 21 women with FF and normal feet (NF), respectively. A Footscan plantar pressure plate (RSscan International, Belgium) was used to analyze FP, CA, and GC. FP was applied to the unit area of 10 total foot regions. GC analysis was performed using phase-time measurements by dividing the GC into four phases. In the analysis, FP and CA between the FF and NF groups were compared. A comparison of GC was similarly carried out between the two groups. The FF group showed significantly higher FP values of toe and midfoot measurements than those seen in the NF group (p < 0.05). We also observed significantly higher CA values of toe, metatarsal, and midfoot measurements in the women with FF than in those with NF (p < 0.05). GC did not differ significantly between the groups.
