Fig. 3

Comparison of peak plantar pressure between the control (Cntrl) shoe, the group-optimised design (apex position = 52%) and personalised apex design (PersApex) in footwear with a rocker angle (RA) = 15° (a-c) and footwear with a RA = 20° (d-f) for the three anatomical regions. The horizontal dotted line represents the 200 kPa threshold and the horizontal bars denote a significant difference between the control shoe and group-optimised design (p < 0.001).
