The Five Core Parameters of Normal Gait

Once normal foot function and biomechanics are understood, it is important to understand interpretation of normal foot function when reviewing patient data displayed in the Footmaxx software. When analyzing foot function using the preliminary patient data displayed on the Footmaxx clinical software, the clinician needs to consider these five core parameters: 

  • What does the Centre of Pressure Line (COPL) look like? Is it straight or curved? -straight is indicative of over-pronation
  •  When does forefoot loading occur? (17%-24%) -signifies the end of contact phase and beginning of mid-stance
  • When does heel lift occur? (50%-65%) -signifies the end of mid-stance and the beginning of propulsion
  • When does full forefoot peak pressure occur? (73%-80%) -75% indicates functional stability
  • Where does red appear? -E.g. Red in the heel could indicate leg length discrepancy, heel spur, limp, etc
