The Predictive Value of the Foot Posture Index on Dynamic Function

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPosterForskning


Keenan et. al. identified the six-item version of the Foot Posture Index (FPI) as a valid, simple and clinically useful tool. The model combines measures of the standing foot posture in multiple planes and anatomical segments. It provides an alternative to existing static clinical measures when dynamic measures are not feasible.

Redmond et. al. found the model able to predict 41% of the variation in the complex rotation of the ankle joint, representing inversion/eversion, during midstance of walking. To our knowledge no studies have been published on the relationship between FPI and the movement of the midfoot during walking.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of FPI classification as a predictor for dynamic midfoot kinematics during walking.
