GROUND REACTION FORCE AND SUPPORT MOMENT IN TYPICAL AND FLAT-FEET CHILDREN
AbstractAssessing ground reaction force could provide valuable information in prescribing appropriate footwear to reduce the consequences of flat-foot as well as limiting further complication in flat-feet children. The main goal of this study was to explore the dynamic plantar loading during child walking for. This study examined ground reaction force in 60 flat-foot children and 25 aged-matched control subjects. Measured parameters included ground reaction force (GRF), and the joint moments of the lower limb. The contribution to the support moment from each joint in the lower limb was determined for the control and flat feet groups.
