The effect of foot type on ankle movement during an inversion perturbation
The proposed study aims to determine if different foot types have an impact on maximum inversion, time to maximum inversion, and inversion velocity during a dynamic perturbation task.
You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:
- Conditions: Healthy
Age: Between 18 Years - 26 Years
Gender: Male or Female
All subjects must be between 18 to 26 years of age to volunteer for this study. Participants will be physically active individuals which will be defined by 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week.
Subjects will be excluded from the study if they have chronic ankle instability, a lower body injury within the past 6 months, and any lower extremity surgery or fracture. Additionally, subjects should not have any disorder that alters gait mechanics, such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, ALS, etc.
