High heeled gait analysis of ankle joint forces using force platform

Kalyan, Kumar Prabhu (2014) High heeled gait analysis of ankle joint forces using force platform. BTech thesis.



An intra-subject comparative study of walking whereas carrying low-heeled shoes versus high-heeled shoes was performed to find and elucidate changes in lower-extremity joint mechanisms related to wearing high-heeled shoes throughout level ground walking. A volunteer sample of ten intact feminine subjects recruited from the institute underwent quantitative mensuration of mesial and frontal plane lower-extremity joint perform, together with angular motion, muscular moment, power, and work. once walking in high-heeled shoes, a major reduction in mortise joint region striated muscle moment, power, and work occurred during the stance section, whereas hyperbolic work was performed by the hip skeletal muscle muscles throughout the transition from stance to swing.
