Abstract

The evaluation of plantar pressure under the
hindfoot is important for sport biomechanics and the
diagnosis of function problems in human feet. This study
observed 10 Middle Eastern adult subjects (five men and five women) during walking. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the pressure differences between gender which were calculated for contact area, peak pressure, contact pressure, pressure-time integral, maximum force, and force-time integral of three steps. The results show that the pressure time integral is significant between gender groups. The mean differences in peak pressure and maximum force are greater in men than in women, while contact pressure is higher in women. Future work may be extended to other regions of the foot influenced by pressure.
