The need to extend markers off a wand to enable reliable tracking precludes measurement at all five metatarsophalangeal joints. Nevertheless, the hallux is an important segment to track given the prevalence, severity and impact on function of 1st MTP disease in RA (Spiegel & Spiegel 1982, Shrader & Siegel 2003). This model is currently used at Leeds in clinical gait analysis to assist treatment planning and evaluation in complex cases and in clinical research to understand more fully dysfunctional movement in the foot joints.

Tenosynovitis of both peroneal tendon sheaths was confirmed by ultrasonography. Her ankle was stiff and very painful when moved into dorsiflexion and her heel was in mild varus when standing.

Five or more walking trials are conducted in such a way that the patient’s foot lands on dual mounted force and pressure plates embedded in the walkway. As the cameras track the markers they are automatically identified for both the static and walking trials. Each trial is then processed in a proprietary motion analysis software package. The standing trial with the anatomical markers is used to build the four segments with the relevant geometry, correct orientation and segment embedded reference frames defined.
