Knowledge of the natural range of motion of individual skeletal segments in the foot during running is necessary for the construction of appropriate stability parameters in athletic footwear. Globally restricting intrinsic motion of the foot may result in non-physiological stresses on specific foot bones or at more proximal sites such as the ankle ligaments. This study presents data on relative three-dimensional motion of individual foot segments, measured in vive with the use of reflective marker arrays attached to intracortical pins inserted in the tibia, talus, calcaneus, cuboid and navicular under local anaesthetic. Data were collected using a 10-camera optoelectric system (Qualysis, Sweden). Mean data for one subject (9 overground barefoot running trials, mean velocity: 2.2 m/s) are presented in table 1. The trials were reproducible (maximum 95% CI across all parameters: 2.3°).
