This study presents research on typical movement of the rearfoot during walking. The data demonstrate the global nature of foot pronation and supination during gait. Study participants (N = 153) walked along a walkway while the angular displacement of the calcaneus, navicular, and first metatarsal relative to the tibia was measured; three-dimensional movement patterns for all three bones were very similar. This study provides additional information on how the foot functions during walking. This information should help to define and refine clinical management strategies for treating foot dysfunction.
