    Dear all ,
    One embodiment of WIPO publication number WO/2010/040974 can now be found on YouTube under the title "Foot exercise and strengthening device ".
    The device shown in the video is designed to allow the foot to be exercised in a nonambulatory fashion ,such as when seated, and effect improvements in both foot strength and flexibility . The device exercises primarily the intrinsic and extrinsic plantar flexors of the toes although EMG studies suggest that the tibialis anterior and peroneal muscles are also exercised to a significant degree .
    Any thoughts ?
    Kind regards
    Scotfoot

    Very interesting Gerry.

    Where the EMG studies carried out in depth?. And if so, Do you have a link to the EMG studies which indicate the muscles activation (%) pattern during the use of this device?.

    ie. were the muscle(s) below included in the study & to what % did they "fire"?.


    posterior tibial
    peroneus longus
    peroneus brevis
