  • Foot Neutral

    Dear Subscribers,
    At the Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney we are conducting
    studies on the mechanics of the foot. One of the major problems in comparing
    intra and inter-subject trials is the lack of a definition of neutral alignment
    of the rearfoot particularly in relation to inversion and eversion. Has anybody
    had experience with this and would like to share their findings?
    At the present time we are using the midline of the posterior aspect of the
    calcaneus and lower one third of the shank to define inv/eversion neutral and
    foot flat and vertical alignment of the malleolus and lateral epicondyle of the
    knee for plantar/dorsiflexion and midline of calcaneus to second mtp for ab/
    adduction.
    Looking forward to your replies....
