Defining standards for modelling the biomechanics of the foot and ankle : a systematic review
Bishop, Chris, Paul, Gunther, & Thewlis, Dominic (2011) Defining standards for modelling the biomechanics of the foot and ankle : a systematic review. Journal of Foot and Ankle Research, 4(Suppl1).
The complex interaction of the bones of the foot has been explored in detail in recent years, which has led to the acknowledgement in the biomechanics community that the foot can no longer be considered as a single rigid segment. With the advance of motion analysis technology it has become possible to quantify the biomechanics of simplified units or segments that make up the foot. Advances in technology coupled with reducing hardware prices has resulted in the uptake of more advanced tools available for clinical gait analysis. The increased use of these techniques in clinical practice requires defined standards for modelling and reporting of foot and ankle kinematics. This systematic review aims to provide a critical appraisal of commonly used foot and ankle marker sets designed to assess kinematics and thus provide a theoretical background for the development of modelling standards.
