    #Success is the word that defines the submission of abstracts to i-FAB 2021 - International Foot & Ankle Biomechanics Meeting. There were almost a hundred new abstracts in addition to the previous submitted ones in 2020, from various parts of the world, which demonstrates the wide scope of the event.

    We would like to thank all the authors who submitted their abstracts! The excellent technical level reflects the objective of the Congress: to be the main discussion forum and disseminator of technical and scientific knowledge on Foot & Ankle Biomechanics! Congratulations to all of you!!

    In i-FAB 2021 we have improved the oral and posters technical sessions to allow more presentations to provide opportunities for delegate interaction. 17 oral sessions will be held where the authors will present live their papers with time for questions and answers at the end, also live. In the poster presentations, the authors will be able share videos of their presentations and interact with the audience.

      Keynote Session confirmed:
      The Foot Core Paradigm: let's think differently about the foot
      .
      .
      ▶️ Speaker: Irene Davis, Harvard Medical School, Cambridge - USA
      .
      .
      The foot is a complex structure with 28 bones, 33 articulations and 20+ intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. Unfortunately, due to this complexity, the foot has been simplified, sometimes as a single unit, in biomechanical models. Clinically, treatment of the foot has been focused on passive approaches such as taping, bracing, and palliative interventions, as opposed to active strengthening. The arch of the foot alone contains 10 intrinsic muscles arranged in 4 layers. These small muscles are critical for the stability of the foot and for normal foot function. This is very much like the role of the stabilizing muscles of the lumbo-pelvic region. Recent studies have shown that chronic support of these foot intrinsic muscles results in their weakening, while removal of chronic support results in their strengthening.

      .
      The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the importance of the strength and function of foot core muscles and their contribution to healthy foot function. It is hoped that this will provide a greater awareness of how we, as both scientists and clinicians, can better leverage our feet.
