  1. Legend: the major demographic and clinical information of the patients analysed (Mean ± standard deviation). Statistically significant differences from the corresponding value in D (Student’s t-test between N and D, p < 0.05) are denoted with *.
  2. aNS-VPT and AI are expressed in a relative unit: the former is the sum of four contributions (MNSI-history, MNSI-physical assessment, VPT at hallux, VPT at malleolus), each one divided by its corresponding full scale; the latter is calculated as the ratio between the midfoot area of the footprint and the whole footprint area without toes
