Foot stability for runners
Carriers of the bodyThe feet are the carriers of the body, they have to work hard while running. They come to the ground about 150 to 185 times per minute when you are running. During running, the impact of landing can increase to several times body weight. For example, if you weigh 80 kilos, the impact can be 3 times as large, 240 kilos per step! But did you know that the highest force is not at the landing but at the pushoff? The forefoot thus gets the highest load!
Dynamic pairBut how can the foot handle this load properly? The foot consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 tendons and 19 muscles that together form a very strong and dynamic structure. This way the foot can handle the forces properly and efficiently!
