Abstract

The foot changes its shape and assumes two different functional positions during normal gait: In the early stance phase, it dorsiflexes, abducts, and everts. These three movements get the hindfoot in a pronated position, flattening the medial arch to strike the floor and enlarge the foot–floor contact surface. During the late stance phase, the foot plantarflexes, adducts, and inverts.
