Plantar pressures and cycling

    Has anyone tried or does anyone have any information on F-scan and pressure analysis of cycling?

    I have recently had a couple road cyclists in with varying degrees of forefoot overload and am tempted to hook them up to the F-scan (with the bike on a wind trainer obviously) to review force in the plantar metatarsal area whilst pedalling.

    I have been unable to obtain any information on what force would be within normal limits ie kg/cm2 of load and would love to hear from anyone who has tried this before.

    Thanks Daina

    There is a current PhD project at AIS in Canberra in collaboration with Uni of Queensland using the Pedar to measure foot/pedal interactions. I was at a conference two weeks ago when the info was presented - I can't recall the researchers name but will follow it up.

    BTW - how is Jane and the twins? Ours good.
