The purpose of this study was to verify whether forefoot alignment can predict subtalar hyperpronation, measured using the rearfoot eversion angle test, the navicular drop test, and the Foot Posture Index (FPI), in young people.
The foot alignment measurements included forefoot angle, single-leg weightbearing rearfoot angle, navicular drop, and the FPI.
The forefoot varus angle was measured with a universal goniometer three times and an average was calculated for greater reliability.
The rearfoot angle was measured as the angle between bisections of the lower one-third of the leg and of the calcaneus, with the participant in single-leg relaxed stance.
