In this section, the proposed method for parabola detection is applied on synthetic images and medical images of the retina and human plantar arch
. In order to assess the proposed method, it is compared with the Hough transform by applying the algorithm of Sanchez found in the MATLAB central  and by running the Hough transform for parabolic shapes algorithm provided by the MIPAV  software, that can be downloaded from the website .
The dorsalis pedis artery is filled by a plantar arch
and Gabrielli et al., have illustrated the contributing arteries and the positioning of the plantar arch
within the foot, documenting a few anatomical variations in this region.
* Unsuited shoes--heels that are too high; shoes that do not support the plantar arch
; going suddenly from heels shoes to no heels;
In contrast, the longer tendon of the peroneus longus turns under the lateral border of the foot at the cuboid bone and travels medially across the sole of the foot, under the plantar arch
, to insert upon the plantar aspect of the medial cuneiform and base of the first metatarsal.
--the plantar arch
of the foot becomes more flatten.
The height of the internal plantar arch
of both feet was measured before and after training, estimating the flexibility of the plantar arch
(percentage change in height of arch between both situations).
We can also notice a correction in the distribution in both limbs but especially in the left one after stimulation, with the formation of plantar arch
(disappearance of the contact in this zone).
Standing on both feet requires a stable plantar arch
with activity of both passive (fascia and ligaments) and active (musculotendinous) elements.
