The aim of the study was to compare the structural and functional characteristics of the foot and ankle complex in obese and non-obese children.
Ten obese and non-obese children were recruited for the study.
All participants were tested barefoot with their feet positioned shoulder-width apart.
Arch height measurements were taken while the participant was sitting (nonweightbearing) and standing (weightbearing).
Arch height parameters were calculated to assess the effect of excess mass on foot mobility.
