Abstract

Objectives: Recognition of plantar pressure distribution patterns of healthy individuals would be helpful in the management of metatarsalgia. We investigated plantar pressure distribution patterns under metatarsal heads in healthy individuals using the EMED-SF plantar pressure analysis system.
