compression stress

; pressure the product (in pascals or kilopascals) of the force exerted by body weight (in newtons) divided by the surface area of the feet (in centimetres squared); compressive stress is inversely proportional to area, e.g. if the ground contact area of the foot at toe off is half that of the foot during midstance, compression stress (pressure) acting on the forefoot is double that of the force exerted across the whole of the plantar surface at midstance
