Being a high-impact form of exercise, practising continuous running can cause injuries in the lower limbs due to excessive foot pronation.
The study aimed to ascertain the effect of 45 minutes of running on foot posture and plantar pressures.
116 individuals without any foot-related conditions were recruited.
Foot Posture Index (FPI) measurements were collected, with a folding screen being placed between the participant and the physician.
A baropodometric exam was conducted using an instrumented in-shoe insole system (Biofoot) to analyse plantar pressures, as the recruits walked a distance of 20 m.
