flexor hallucis longus

the muscle that flexes the great toe. It is particularly active during the toe-off phase of walking when the body is propelled forward of the stance leg and the great toe is the last part of the foot to leave the ground. It can also contribute to plantarflexion of the foot at the ankle joint. It is innervated by the tibial nerve.
