Force & Foot Function

In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar, Force & Foot Function, Musculoskeletal Podiatrist & Clinical Educator in Plantar Pressure Analysis Paul Graham explores how forces affect humans in our daily lives. You will learn about the systems our bodies use to manage these forces over time and how they can become greater than what our bodies can tolerate.

Forces are always affecting us, from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed, even while we’re sleeping. They are a constant during our entire lives and never change. Our bodies manage these forces using physiological systems, deflecting and absorbing the stresses so pressure areas do not occur. The efficiency of these systems changes over the course of our lives, becoming less efficient through factors such as age, injury, and lifestyle.

In this webinar you will learn how the foot is able to withstand forces such as gravity and ground reaction force. We will also explore how, with dysfunctions, areas of pressure begin to build-up, causing tissue injury to supportive or functional structures.

Key Takeaways from Watching This Webinar:

  • Learn what forces affect our bodies, including those that affect our feet like gravity or ground reaction force.
  • Understand the different asymmetries that can affect foot function and plantar pressure.
  • Experience how our body’s systems for dealing with these forces can change over time.
