  1. Legend: Mean peak pressure (mpp), pressure time integral (pti), contact area (ca) and maximum sensor pressure (msp) in a plantar anatomical location. CV = Coefficient of variation reported as a percentage. A pre-established level of <30 % was used as a threshold for determining appropriate reproducibility
