Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Rearfoot motion can be quantified in three dimensions by examining the movements of the rearfoot relative to the leg occurring at the ankle/subtalar joint complex. In turn, these movements can be broken down into their components of dorsiflexion/plantarflexion, inversion/eversion and adduction/abduction. The aim of the present study was to quantify the shoe control of rearfoot motion during walking and running.
