Hello all,

We're preforming an experiment on cadaveric knees which have had the feet
removed. In order to increase the accuracy of our results, we would like
to construct an extension of the tibia which mimics the presence of a foot.
However, we need to know the average weight of an adult male foot. Does
anybody have this information? We realize that the information is probably
in Winter's book: Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement, however
we do not have a copy.
Thanks for the help.
