The foot is a complex structure with many articulations and multiple degrees of freedom that play an important role in static posture and dynamic activities.

Abstract

The foot is a complex structure with many articulations and multiple degrees of freedom that play an important role in static posture and dynamic activities. The evolutionary development of the arch of the foot was coincident with the greater demands placed on the foot as humans began to run. The movement and stability of the arch is controlled by intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. The aim of the present study was to investigate if a medical device (plantar), called RUGRAN, can enhance muscle rehabilitation in pain syndromes muscle-tendon for the correction and stabilization postural. The static pedobarographic evaluation revealed significantly higher values in terms of forefoot peak pressure, total plantar force and total contact area in subject without RUGARN plantar, compared to subjects with RUGARN plantar. To the best of our knowledge this is the first study that analyzed the pedobarographic improvements in subjects with the RUGARN plantar. The static pedobarographic results observed while the subjects were standing revealed no difference of force distribution and contact area between forefoot and rearfoot and this finding did not support the hypothesis that the centre of the body shifts to forward because of excessive adipose tissue causing excessive forefoot loading.
