Concurrent validity and reliability of wireless instrumented insoles measuring postural balance and temporal gait parameters

Background The OpenGo seems promising to take gait analysis out of laboratory settings due to its capability of long-term measurements and mobility. However, the OpenGo’s concurrent validity and reliability need to be assessed to determine if the instrument is suitable for validation in patient samples. Methods Twenty healthy volunteers participated. Center of pressure data were […]

Plantar Pressure Distribution And Gait Stability: Normal vs. High Heel

Abstract In this paper, the plantar pressure distribution and the center of pressure movement were studied and gait stability of high heels versus normal heels was observed. A group of ten young female participants without any previous lower limbs injuries were asked to wear shoes of different heel heights, namely, 0cm, 2cm and 4cm and […]
