Abstract

The mechanical properties of the calcaneal fat pad have been determined during plantarflexion using synchronised motion analysis and force plate systems. This study showed no significant differences in stiffness measurements between genders with respect to the left and right heels. The application of this combined technology has potential to be used within the clinics to support foot disease diagnosis such as plantar fasciitis and heel pain.
