Foot motion character during forward and backward walking with shoes and barefoot
from Journal of Motor Behavior
Backward walking has been extensively used in athletic training and orthopedic rehabilitation as it may have value for enhancing balance. This study identified the differences in foot intersegment kinematics (forward walking versus time-reversed BW) and plantar pressure parameters of 16 healthy habitually shod individuals walking FW and BW using flexible shoes and under barefoot conditions.
