Forefoot Varus Anyone?
Forefoot varus appears to move the center of gravity medially while walking. Nothing earthshaking here, but nice to see the support of the literature.
“The most medial CoP of the row and CoP% detected increased medial CoP deviation in FV ≥ 8°, and may be applied to other clinical conditions where rearfoot angle and CoP of the array after initial heel contact cannot detect significant differences.”
We will be talking about foot types this week on onlinece.com; Wednesday 8 EST, 7 CST, 6MST, 5 PST Biomechanics 314. Hope to see you there!
