Does anyone have any information regarding foot and ankle
positions/orientations when driving cars.

My guess is that there will be a fairly large variation between vehicles due
to the location of the pedals and between automatic and manual gearchange
vehicles. In addition there is the problem of shoe sizes and heel heights.

I am also interested in foot forces under breaking forces and how these are
distributed over the foot.

Thanks and a Happy Christmas to everyone.
