Full description

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of obesity on foot structure and function in pre-school children (aged 3-5 years). This was investigated by measuring external and internal foot structures as well evaluating the function each child¿s foot via plantar pressures. Correlations between each of the measurements and body mass index values were calculated as well as comparisons between overweight/obese and non-overweight children were made for each of the measurements.
