    Dear all

    Please excuse this posting if you have no interest in the FPI, but I know there are many arena members who have used or seen the FPI in its developmental stages.

    After a long gestation period the final, validated version of the Foot Posture Index is about to be published.
    The pre-publication version of the Clinical Biomechanics paper is now available online at:
    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02680033

    The instrument itself is being released into the public domain and the rest of the information you are likely to need is also available online at http://www.leeds.ac.uk/medicine/FASTER/FPI/index.htm

    If you need any further information drop me an email.

    Kind regards

    Tony

    I'll admit I've only skim read the paper but I'm confused; this was a study collecting data from subjects with no pain or injury (that was actually stated in their inclusion/exclusion criteria) - so how can there be a comment made about the 'pathological boundary'?

    It was based on the assumption that is widely used in medicine that approx 2SD from the population mean is "pathological" or outside the normal range; ie normal =+/1 2SD from population mean

    That was the problem with the Nielsen et al (2013) study

    In the last couple of yrs of Boot Camps I have asked participants who are familiar with the FPI, what their cut of point is and NONE of them agree with the above and Nielsen's cut off point.

    Houston .... we have a problem.

    Surely it meaningless. You can have a foot with a low FPI and high supination resistance that is pathological. You can have a foot with a high FPI and low supination resistance that is not pathological.

    Of course. That is at the heart of the:
    You can have a foot with 'perfect' alignment or normal FPI that will be pathological if the loads are high enough (and not just supination resistance as there are other high 'loads').

    There are plenty of feet with very high FPI's (ie 'overpronated') that never get symptoms .... one assumption could be that loads are low and that is why they do not get symptoms.

    In recent Boot Camps I have been banging on about joint moment and lever arms as being a key determinant of tissue loads at any particular volume of activity.... and those lever arms/joint moments are not related to FPI.

    In Gaussian terms I guess they'd just be called 'outliers'. We all know that is not consistently predictive of pathology...

    Craig, can this not be the basis for a new grad to 'hang their hat on' whilst concurrently developing their clinical experience in determining axis and loads? ie use it as just another bit of quantitative data to throw into the melting pot to make some informed decisions?

    It is a bit of information; but we have to constantly be critical of what and why we collect any information for. Theoretically, any information we collect has to have the potential to alter clinical decision making. If any information that is collected does not factor into the clinical decision making process, then why collect it?

    I found the same assumption used in the presentation""Forces Acting in the Forefoot During Normal Gait ?A Clinical Application"( http://novel.de/pdf/extra/WyssCh.pdf ). In the slide no. 45 the clinical approach is based on "more than 2 standard deviation >> pathologically" and the case simulation indications seems to be based on it. How correct could be this ?
