gait changes with the use of heelys a case study

2021-08-13 sport Comments Off on gait changes with the use of heelys a case study

Heelys shoes are a novel athletic shoe with a concealed wheel. They have been popular among youths since their introduction in 2000. This case study serves as a first look into the biomechanical impli...

the effects of total contact casting materials on plantar pressures

2021-08-13 sport Comments Off on the effects of total contact casting materials on plantar pressures

The plaster-based total contact cast (TCC) is effective at reducing high plantar pressures associated with foot ulceration in the patient with diabetes. However, the weight and the lengthy drying time...

peak pressures in the forefoot

2021-08-13 sport Comments Off on peak pressures in the forefoot

We used a high frequency response, ultra-thin transducer to measure forefoot pressures at predetermined sites on the sole of the foot in 10 normal subjects. We demonstrated impact pressure peaks, whic...

navicular drop as a composite measure of excessive pronation

2021-08-13 Blog Comments Off on navicular drop as a composite measure of excessive pronation

The measure of navicular drop has been used as an indicator of pronation at the foot. It is defined as the distance the navicular tuberosity moves in standing, as the subtalar joint is allowed to move...

mechanics of toe and heel landing in stepping down in ongoing gait

2021-08-13 Blog Comments Off on mechanics of toe and heel landing in stepping down in ongoing gait

When stepping down from a height difference in ongoing gait, subjects are known to use a heel landing at small height differences and switch to toe landing for larger height differences. We hypothesiz...
