Treadmill-Analysis-RFS-Animated

Treadmill Video typical of a Patient having the Rothbarts Foot Structure












The above animation is an extrapolation/compilation of frames taken from a treadmill video typical of a patient having Rothbarts Foot.  The following three key frames are chosen:  Heel Contact, Midstance, Heel Lift

Treadmill Hallmarks of Rothbarts Foot Structure

  • Heel Contact:   Foot is supinated
  • Midstance:       Foot is pronated
  • Heel Lift:          Windlass Mechanics is compromised (e.g., foot resupination is attenuated)


RFS-Midfoot-Rt-vs-Lf

Rothbart Foot Structure - comparing pronation pattern at midstance, right foot vs left foot













Determining the asymmetry of abnormal pronation pattern seen in Rothbarts Foot Structure

The above animation is an extrapolation/compilation of frames taken at right foot midstance and left foot midstance

Note - the pronation pattern is more severe on the right foot



RFS-Heel-Lift-Rt-vs-Lf-foot

Extrapolated frames taken at heel lift typical of a patient having Rothbarts Foot Structure













Determining the asymmetry of abnormal pronation pattern seen in Rothbarts Foot Structure

The above animation is an extrapolation/compilation of frames taken at right foot heel lift and left foot heel lift

Note - the pronation pattern is more severe on the left foot


This apparent contradiction in pronation patterns (right foot more pronated at midstance, left foot more pronated at heel lift) suggests a mixed (non smooth) gait pattern in which the gait is being skewed by:

  • Craniomandibular mechanics
  • Windlass Mechanics being more efficient on the right foot compared to the left foot.
  • Defective shoes (e.g., compressed midsoles compromising effectiveness of insoles)
