The objective of this investigation was therefore to identify changes in loading characteristics of the foot after a 90 minute running exercise... During the pre-training session, participants were asked to run barefoot at a self-selected speed across a plantar pressure platform (RSscan International, 0,5 m × 0,4 m, 4 sensors/cm, 300 Hz) that was embedded in a 16 meter walkway (EVA foam, shore 60)... Three left and three right steps were captured for each session and each participant... One observer localised 6 anatomical regions on the footprints using the multimask function of the software (Scientific version 7.0)... For these regions (the five metatarsal heads and the hallux) the following dependent variables were analyzed: Peak Pressure, Impulse, Time to Peak, Start Time and End Time... Intra-individual differences between both conditions were tested for significance with the paired student T-test... The contact time of the whole foot was not significantly different between the pre-and post training sessions, which indicates repeatable gait... Also, no significant differences were found between the various parameters of the two sessions, and this for all the 6 regions under investigation... However, in some participants a clear different Peak Pressure pattern (Figure 1), was found in the pre-and post exercise situation... The results of this study show no significant changes in the loading characteristics as reported by other publications.
