foot loading patterns can be changed by deliberately walking with in toeing or out toeing gait modifications

The present study shows how foot loading patterns may be deliberately altered by either in-toeing or out-toeing gait during barefoot walking. The results indicate that in-toeing increasingly loads the lateral aspects of the midfoot and forefoot by as much as 61% and 49%, respectively, whereas out-toeing intensifies the load on the medial aspect, i.e. predominantly the medial midfoot and medial forefoot by as much as 72% and 52%. These findings are being discussed with respect to the potential benefits of consciously altering the gait pattern in order to off-load certain plantar regions.
