Abstract

In order to know the different between insole and ground pressure measurements, or which information is given by a pressure platform and which by an pressure insole system, We compare them for some specific parameters against the relationship of lower limbs movement. The methods we used are collected plantar pressure data from 30 males (in different conditions we controlled). A six-degrees of freedom, midfoot and forefoot segments along with motion of the tibia. Kinematic data (Qualisis, Sweden) was collected simultaneously with high speed pressure plate (footscan RSSCAN International, Belgium) data. At last we found Highly good correlation were found in the barefoot (heel and total foot, Figure 5) and shod data for the pressure plate (footscan). And the two different pressure measurement systems produce different results for the TIR. Etc
