Does obesity influence foot structure in prepubescent children: current perspectives

Journal Article


Abstract


  • An on-going study is investigating the effects of obesity on foot structure and plantar pressure distribution in prepubescent children. In the completed Study I, height and weight pf 429 consenting students from 20 randomly selected primary schools in Australia were measured to calculate BMI. Study 2 is focusing on possible causes of increased footprint width associated with increased body mass in children.
