    "People with a relatively high plantar flexion moment at 40% of the stance phase, have a faster forward transfer of center of pressure and consequently higher loading of the forefoot. This indicates that interventions aimed at increasing the control of the roll-off of the foot may contribute to a better plantar pressure distribution.

    Aloha,

    We have been working with advanced composite spring lever carbon fiber orthotic systems to increase the the control of the roll-off of the foot and distribute plantar pressure successfully. We have seen this quick movement of the COM through midstance as well with our lab testing.

    Great research keep it up!

    A hui hou,
    Steve
