  • Comparison of static footprints and pedobarography in obese and non-obese children. [Journal Article]
    Foot Ankle Int 2008; 29(11):1141-4Taisa Filippin N, de Almeida Bacarin T, Lobo da Costa PH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Since obesity may affect the relationship between static and dynamic measures, footprints should be used with caution when inferring the characteristics of obese children's feet under dynamic conditions.Footprints and pedobarography should not be used at this time for clinical decision making regarding the feet of obese children.
  • Can static plantar pressures of prepubertal children be predicted by inked footprints? [Journal Article]
    J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2004 Sep-Oct; 94(5):429-33Dowling AM, Steele JR, Baur LA
  • A study was conducted to determine whether a pedograph could be used as a field-based screening tool to predict pressures generated on the plantar surfaces of the feet of prepubertal children during single-limb weightbearing stance. Plantar pressures were collected in 51 primary school-aged children using a pressure distribution measurement system. Statistically significant negative correlations …
  • Does obesity influence foot structure in prepubescent children? [Journal Article]
    Int J Obes Relat Metab Disord 2000; 24(5):541-4Riddiford-Harland DL, Steele JR, Storlien LH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Excess body mass appears to have a significant effect on the foot structure of prepubescent children whereby young obese children display structural foot characteristics which may develop into problematic symptoms if excessive weight gain continues. Further investigation into possible consequences, particularly any effects on foot function, is warranted.
  • Dynamic plantar pressure analysis. Comparing common insole materials. [Journal Article]
    J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 1992; 82(10):507-13Sanfilippo PB, Stess RM, Moss KM
  • A comparison of five commonly used insole materials (Spenco, PPT, Plastazote, Nickelplast, and Pelite) was made to evaluate their effectiveness in reducing plantar vertical pressures on human subjects during walking. With the use of the EMED-SF pedograph force plate system, dynamic measures of vertical force, force-time integral, peak plantar pressure, pressure-time integral, and area of foot-to-…
  • Field dependence and body balance. [Journal Article]
    Percept Mot Skills 1990; 71(3 Pt 1):723-34Kitamura F, Matsunaga K
  • This study reports four points about the portable Rod and Frame Test performance of 30 Japanese women in terms of body balance. The primary findings using a stabilometer are: (a) field dependence correlated negatively with increased sway path within 1 min. both while a dot pattern as a visual stimulus was stationary and while it was moving. (b) Field dependence correlated positively with the diff…
