    Dear BIOMCH-L member:

    During the 8th biennial Footwear Biomechanics Symposium to be held in Taipei Taiwan from the 27th through the 29th June 2007 at the National Yang University Taipei, we have arranged a special tutorial lectured by Prof. Ewald Hennig ( University Duisburg-Essen, Germany) and Prof. Julie Steele (University of Wollongong, Australia).

    3. The adult foot: A gender comparison of foot anatomy (Julie) and foot function (Ewald)

    4. The effect of obesity in women and men on:

    a) Pressure distribution (Ewald, Julie)

    b) Fat pad thickness (Ewald, Julie)

    5. Perception of touch and vibration in the adult foot:

    a) foot mapping of sensation across the plantar and dorsal surfaces of the foot; sex differences (Ewald)
