  • i-FAB Foot and Ankle Data Repository

    The International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Community (i-FAB) held its 4th biennial meeting in Busan, South Korea in April 2014 ( The next meeting will be June 23-25, 2016 as part of International Foot 2016 in Berlin.

    One of the goals of i-FAB is to create an open data repository relevant to foot biomechanics. Examples of typical datasets might be: joint kinematics; plantar pressure distributions; STL files of anatomical structures; FE meshes etc. Ideally, there will also be an accompanying MATLAB script that will read the data file(s), if appropriate.

    If you have a dataset that you would like to share, please contact me with the following information and I will work with you to bring it into the repository.

    · Category of data (e.g. kinematics, plantar pressure, segmented anatomy, computational model, etc.)
    · Size
    · Format (e.g. raw data, mesh, STL file, file extension)
    · Number of Subjects
    · MATLAB Script available. Y/N?
    · Reference to Publication (if available)
