Chong, Albert K.-F. and Newsham-West, Richard and Milburn, Peter (2010) It’s looking up! 3D mapping of foot surface contours. In: WCB 2010: 6th World Congress of Biomechanics, 1-6 Aug 2010, Singapore.
Surprisingly little is know about how the plantar aspect of the foot deforms while walking. Bone motion or foot shape during load-bearing has been studied using video fluoroscopy, laser scanning photogrammetry, or modelled from static poses using finite element techniques. Also, pressure under the foot is regularly measured, but how the plantar surface changes during weight-bearing is unknown despite being relevant to balance, shoe design and orthothic prescription for the normal and pathological foot. This paper presents the development and application of a novel close-range photogrammetry (CRP) technique for studying the dynamic 3D shape of the plantar surface of the foot during gait.
