    Dear Members,

    The usefulness of the free vertical moment / couple, Ty or Mz', is highlighted by Holden and Cavanagh, "The free moment of ground reaction in distance running and its changes with pronation" , http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1744147
    What about horizontal torques ?
    Them could be calculated but, here : http://biomch-l.isbweb.org/archive/index.php/t-16197.html, there are some argues for their null value. This make me a little confused !:bash:
    The question is: with the exception of inverse dynamics, how important are these horizontal couples for understanding the foot biomechanics ?

    Sincerely,
    Daniel
