RACIAL AND GENDER COMPARISON OF ANTHROPOMETRIC PARA METERS OF THE FOOT

This paper takes a new look at the anthropometric parameters of the foot in relation to gender and racial differences. A total of 274 feet of African and European young men and women were examined. Anthropometric parameters of the foot were measured and the foot arches determined using the Shtriter index. In conclusion, we have obtained comprehensive results proving racial and gender differences in anthropometric parameters of foot. We have confirmed that in terms of race or gender, Africans or men are prone to developing flatfoot whilst Europeans or women - high arched foot.
