Table 1 Mean arch height flexibility and change in foot length across the 3 foot type groups

From: Foot type symmetry and change of foot structures from sitting to standing conditions

  Cavus Neutral Planus P-value
N (female) 53 (5) 184 (34) 711 (133)  
AHF (mm/kN) 13.2 ± 7.4 14.8 ± 7.4 16.6 ± 7.4 0.0001 a,c
ΔFoot Length (mm) 4.8 ± 2.6 4.3 ± 2.2 3.6 ± 2.1 <.0001 a,c
  1. Arch height flexibility = [(arch height in sitting – arch height in standing) / (0.4 * body weight)]. A significant difference (P<0.05) was observed between a cavus and planus foot types and c between neutral and planus foot types.
