Project: Optimisation of the methodology of local plantar pressure measurements for the biomechanical analysis of the foot roll over in running

project duration
01-JAN-04 – 31-OCT-06
There is a need for dynamic evaluation methods in the biomechanical study of the foot unroll in running. Plantar pressure measurement at high sampling rate (>200 Hz) and with a high spatial resolution (>2 sensors/cm2) are well suited. The aim of this project is to determine the reproducibility and the validity of the Footscan measurements. A normative database and models for interpretation will be developed.
