To determine if physical factors (age, sex, weight, foot length) affected anteroposterior and intersidal weight- bearing pattern on footplate in standing posture and duration of stance phase at walking.
Participants were 578 healthy adults (250 men, 328 women). All participants were tested by Gaitview (Alfoots, Seoul, Korea) which measure anteroposterior, intersidal weight-bearing pattern on foot plate and duration of stance phase at walking. Measurements were analyzed to find any relations among physical factors (age, sex, weight, foot length), anteorposterior, intersidal weight-bearing pattern and stance phase.
The age, weight, foot length had no specific relations to anteroposterior weight-bearing pattern (r<0.2, p<0.05). Men had greater weight-bearing pattern on forefoot than women (p<0.01). The higher the age, the more midstance and the more delayed stance phase was noted (r>0.4, p<0.01).
There was a significant correlation between sex and anteroposteior weight-bearing pattern. And there was a positive relation between age and stance, midstance phase. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2008; 32: 576-581)
Key Words: Weight-bearing, Asymmetry, Stance phase
