The role of the foot in the mechanism of shock absorption

Kobezda Tamas


The present work introduces an anatomical specimen of the muscles of the foot with the intention to promote the understanding of its structure in anatomical courses. The specimen is preserved with the plastination technique of Günther von Hagens. Special attention has been paid to the potential function of individual pedal muscles in the support of the plantar arches as deduced from the fascicular geometry and attachment of the muscles. Attention has been called to the importance of the care of the foot order to maintain its structural and functional integrity.
