  • Dynamics ond kinematics of plantar foot structures

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    We are trying to model the human foot. This model should be applied to
    landing events in gymnastics. In order to model the plantar structures
    of the foot we need dynamical and kinematical data of this structures
    (force-deformation curves would be the best). Specifically we´ve red Ker
    and Alexander´s article "The spring in the arch of the human foot" where
    they describe the force-deformation curves when cutting one by one the
    different plantar ligaments. The deformation in this paper was vertical
    while we are looking the distance between metatarsal heads and
    calcaneus.


    Any help would be greatly apreciated, (also on how to measure this).
