The influence of body weight, body mass index and gender on plantar pressures: Results of a cross-sectional study of healthy children's feet
from Gait & Posture
The purpose of this study was to determine if plantar pressure data in 4–7 year old children with normal development: (1) required normalising by body mass and/or body mass index and (2) should be separated or pooled for boys and girls. The outcome will guide the management of plantar pressure data in future work investigating changes in plantar pressure distribution with increasing age.
