From a mathematical point of view, high-heeled shoes can be divided into two regions: a nonlinear arch and toe region and an approximately linear heel region.
For the heel region, a simple linear curve could be used.
The obtained model now consists of two parts (Equation (3)): a linear portion that defines the heel region (part 1) and a nonlinear portion, the MWA, that defines the arch and toe regions (part 2) of a shoe's insole profile.
Excess body mass may accelerate the degenerative processes occurring in the plantar heel region, particularly in the presence of age-related stiffening and decreased elasticity in the heel pad (24,25).
Depending on the running style, softer material is often used for damping in the heel region, while more elastic material is used on the ball of the foot to ensure that as little kinetic energy as possible is lost," explains Mezger.
1], the peak pressure of heel region increased about 33%, that in the medial arch increased about 16%, and that in the lateral arch lift increased about 25%.
In our findings, the maximum force and peak pressure of a heel region increased with greater speed.
He ended up with an abscess under the sole in the heel region of his foot.
The pressure distribution on the heel region holds high for a long time and the pressure index is also high.
At ball impact (Figure 4e), the back foot pressure decreased from the heel region leaving a pressure focus on the first and second metatarsal ([M.
Table 3 indicated that wearing the metal spike shoe was associated with greater pressures within the medial back mid-foot (R6) region than the alternative spike shoe, and greater pressure change within the anterior lateral (R3) heel region when compared to the flat soled shoe.
Towards the top of the backswing, pressures increased towards maximal as the golfer placed their weight onto the back foot, particularly the heel regions.
