About

The purpose of this study is to find out the changes in the measurable parameters of the dynamic and static position of the foot, caused by the tibialis posterior muscle which is activated by the fatigue protocol. The study includes 30 healthy patients whose socio-demographic and descriptive characteristics are held. The changes in the dynamic and static position of foot were measured by pedobarography whereas the level of fatigue was measured by Borg Fatigue Scale.

Full description

The purpose of this study is to find out the changes in the measurable parameters of the dynamic and static position of the foot, caused by the tibialis posterior muscle which is activated by the fatigue protocol. The study includes 30 healthy patients whose socio-demographic and descriptive characteristics are held. The changes in the dynamic and static position of foot were measured by pedobarography whereas the level of fatigue was measured by Borg Fatigue Scale. The variables were investigated using Shapiro-Wilk's test to determine the normality. The student's t-test for paired samples were used to analyse, means (X), standard deviations (SD), 95% confidence intervals (95%CI), mean difference and Cohen's d-effect size were calculated. The significance level was set at .05. The effect size was considered 'small' if d= .20; 'medium' if .d=.5; 'large' if d= .8.
