contact period

contact period

period during stance phase of gait extending from heel strike (HS) (i.e. contact of the posterior lateral border of the heel with the support surface) to foot flat (FF) (i.e. contact of entire weight-bearing area of the foot with the support surface), during which the lower limb undergoes rapid deceleration and the foot functions as a mobile adaptor (to counteract impact forces of approximately 115% of body weight)
