Ground reaction force and plantar pressure distribution data of Korean young adults during barefoot walking
Virtual Program Session
DescriptionGait analysis has been used to evaluate disease progression and efficiency of rehabilitation. This study aimed to establish the population database of the vertical ground reaction force and plantar pressure time-series data during walking. Plantar pressure and ground reaction force data were collected from 176 asymptomatic young Korean adults, and the normality of the data were tested. The normative data of the spatiotemporal gait parameters, time-series vertical ground reaction force curves, and butterfly diagrams (center of pressure trajectory) were established. The data collected in the current study would serve as the reference gait data of the young Korean population and help healthcare professionals assess the existence or severity of abnormal gait patterns of patients.
