  • Segmental foot and ankle kinematic differences between rectus, planus, and cavus foot types. [Journal Article]
    J Biomech 2019; 94:180-186Kruger KM, Graf A, … Krzak JJ
  • The presence of multiple foot types has been used to explain the variability of foot structure observed among healthy adults. These foot types were determined by specific static morphologic features and included rectus (well aligned hindfoot/forefoot), planus (low arched), and cavus (high arched) foot types. Unique biomechanical characteristics of these foot types have been identified but reporte…
  • Three-dimensional variations in the lower limb caused by the windlass mechanism. [Journal Article]
    PeerJ 2017; 5:e4103Manfredi-Márquez MJ, Tovaruela-Carrión N, … Ramos-Ortega J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Kinematic analysis suggested that the higher the degree of extension the more movement will be generated. This reduces the level of impact the more distal the structure with respect to the 1st MTPJ, which has an impact on the entire leg. Because of the kinematic system used wasn't suitable, its impact wasn't exactly quantified.
  • Investigating biomechanical function of toes through external manipulation integrating analysis. [Clinical Trial]
    Acta Bioeng Biomech 2016; 18(1):97-102Mei Q, Fernandez J, … Gu Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: While no significance existed between bound and non-bound toes in kinematics, the medial forefoot had a smaller foot impulse and the hallux had a larger foot impulse for those with non-binding feet. This suggests that other functions such as the active gripping action of toes might be important for the efficiency of the foot windlass mechanism (the plantar fascia support), which would be beneficial for running performance improvement and foot injury prevention.
  • Different Width and Tightening System: Emergency Tourniquets on Distal Limb Segments. [Journal Article]
    J Spec Oper Med 2015; 15(4):28-38Wall PL, Sahr SM, Buising CM
  • CONCLUSIONS: All four designs can be effective on distal limb segments, the SWATT doing so with the lowest pressures and least pressure losses over time. The pressure change from Occlusion to Completion varies by tourniquet tightening system and can involve a pressure decrease with the windlass tightening systems. Pressure losses occur in as little as 120 seconds following Completion and so can loss of Occlusion. This is especially true for nonelastic strap tourniquet designs.
