Foot and ankle joint kinematic differences have been identified between healthy subjects and subjects with various pathologies suffering from foot and ankle impairments. Changes in temporal factors such as walking speed and double stance time are also found in these pathological conditions. As such, in theory, these factors would also influence the kinematics and hence make it difficult to ascertain the effects of the disease on the kinematics. The aim of this study was to analyse foot and ankle kinematics from gait recordings of healthy subjects walking at comfortable and slower speeds.
