sup][22] reported that neuropathy-related variables played a key role in plantar pressure levels in a diabetic foot, and especially in the hallux, in the first metatarsal head, and in the heel region.
Although the largest pressure values were generally observed under the second and third metatarsal heads of the forefoot when the ten individual foot regions were considered, when the foot was subdivided into the three subregions, the overall largest pressure values were ascribed to the heel region of the foot, closely followed by the forefoot region.
The first compartment (load cell) corresponds to the great toe and 2nd toe region, second to the lateral three toes, third to anterior half of medial arch, fourth to anterior half of lateral border, fifth to posterior half of medial arch, sixth compartment to posterior half of lateral border and seventh (seventh and eighth loads cells) to the heel region (10).
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.
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%.
Heelstrike (%): defined as the instant the heel region (HM-HL) first contacts the footscan[R] plate until one of the metatarsal heads contacts the footscan[R] plate.
Glass bead media is often used because the nature of a spherical bead will both deburr the needle and round the heel region.
He ended up with an abscess under the sole in the heel region of his foot.
The predicted width at the heel region had higher errors attributable to error propagation with the use of forward recursive regression because the seed section for the width calculation was based on the toe region.
The pressure distribution on the heel region holds high for a long time and the pressure index is also high.
