Abstract

The oxygen consumption during walking was measured in patients affected by chronic lesions of the foot. Only subjects with rigidity of the talocalcaneal joint showed increased oxygen consumption, which reached 5 to 20 per cent above normal. They also showed an increased step frequency, probably as a compensatory mechanism to reduce the mechanical work performed during each step.
