Source : British Journal of Sports Medicine Abstract Objective To investigate the effectiveness of foot orthoses for pain and function in adults with plantar heel pain.
Highlights • Comparison of objective and subjective methods to analyse foot function is proposed. • Visual assessment of foot strike pattern is highly accurate.
Highlights • Subject specific 6 DOF foot musculoskeletal model combined with 3D FEM. • Subject specific experimentally measured plantar pressure as gold standard.
Highlights • VI activity was measured by fine wires during stiff-knee gait of stroke patients. • VI abnormal activity is frequent in stroke patients with SKG.
Highlights • Women with patellofemoral pain (PFP) presented at least two kinematic alterations. • Proximal, local, and distal kinematic alterations vary between women with PFP.
Highlights • Elbow flexed and elbow straight crutch length setups were investigated. • Cadence and walking speed were not significant different.
Highlights • Rheumatoid arthritis women (RA) present a differentiated joint motor behaviour. • RA ankle “moment-angle” during gait stance phase show a counter-clockwise loop.
Highlights • Perturbed patella position and computed knee contact during normal and crouch gait. • Tibiofemoral pressure nearly doubled (2.2 to 4.3 MPa) from normal to severe crouch.
Highlights • Objectively assessed foot structure, function and arch flexibility in 1090 cadets. • Nearly three-quarters of participants demonstrated a planus foot type (flatfoot).
Highlights • It is feasible to collect gait data from smartphone sensors during drinking occasions. • Artificial neural network model are useful to analyze sensor-based gait features.
