To develop a kinematic model to quantify in-shoe foot kinematics during gait.
Methods and material
The intra-rater (ICC = 0.68 – 0.99) and inter-rater reliability (ICC = 0.75 – 0.98) of marker placement on the shoe ranged from moderate to excellent. The error of calibration marker placement on the shoe was < 5 mm compared to skin-mounted markers.
In conclusion, we present an accurate and reliable kinematic model to describe in-shoe foot kinematics during gait.
ASICS Oceania provided the shoes for the study. Simpleware provided a complimentary software licence used to define model parameters.
