- Foot pronates immediately after heel contact (See white arrow) and continues to pronate throughout the entire stance phase.
- Note the atypical heel contact in which the entire foot lands on the ground (as opposed to a distinct heel contact).
- This same atypical motion occurs at heel lift where the entire foot is raised off the ground (as opposed to a distinct push off by the hallux).
- This gait pattern, often described as a functional flatfooted gait, is frequently observed in the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
