MULTISEGMENTAL KINEMATIC BEHAVIOR OF NORMAL AND PRONATED FEET DURING THE SQUAT PHASE OF THE ANTERIOR AND LATERAL STEP DOWN TESTS
These data accompanied with the paper "MULTISEGMENTAL KINEMATIC BEHAVIOR OF NORMAL AND PRONATED FEET DURING THE SQUAT PHASE OF THE ANTERIOR AND LATERAL STEP DOWN TESTS". The aim of the study was to compare the multisegmental kinematic behavior of neutral and pronated feet during the squat phase of the anterior and lateral step down tests. Our hypothesis is that neutral and pronated feet would exhibit different kinematic behaviors during the step down tests based on the analysis of the segments of the tibia, hindfoot and forefoot, as was the case in previous studies that analyzed gait The data were obtained through the kinematic analysis with a three-dimensional system during the execution of two functional tests: Anterior and Lateral Step Down Tests. Using a multisegmental foot model in pronated and neutral foot of health's individuals. The mean for the nine cycles of each variables for the two tasks was calculated and the data were save in excel format. In the data repository are three documents attached: - INSTRUCTIONS FOR EXCEL FILES (word): Instructions and legends of the data and how to interpret the excel files. - ANTERIOR STEP DOWN TEST (excel): There are five tabs with all the variables utilized for compare the two groups. - LATERAL STEP DOWN TEST (excel): There are five tabs with all the variables utilized for compare the two groups. - Anthropometrics Characteristics (excel): contains the data of anthropometrics characteristics of each volunteers. The variables were compared between groups using multivariate analysis of variance. The mean of each variables and segments were used to identify the movement realized by the groups. The findings of these study allowed identify that the most of the differences between groups were in the frontal plane and in the FFHFA segment. The pronated foot presented decreased movement for most variables of the foot.
