  1. Effects of the Building Osteo Neatly Exercise (BONE) program on quantitative ultrasound parameters and plantar pressure distribution in college-aged women, S. Kurosaka, T. Ueda, T. Deguchi, K. Okihara, Y. Yuzaki., S. Kurosaka, T. Ueda, T. Deguchi, K. Okihara, Y. Yuzaki., 2019 ASICS SMA Conference, 2019, Without Invitation, English, Sports Medicine Australia, Australia, Introduction: This study investigated the effects in college-aged women of a specifically designed exercise program that focused on the arches of the foot and the forefoot (the “Building Osteo Neatly Exercise (BONE) program”). Methods: Forty college-aged women were divided randomly into experimental and control groups. The experimental group underwent the BONE program for 60 min once a week for 4 months. In both groups, the plantar pressure distribution and quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameters of the calcaneus (speed of sound [SOS] and bone area ratio [BAR]) were evaluated at the beginning and end of the study. The plantar pressure distribution during walking was measured with a pressure plate and used to evaluate the deviation from the ideal values for the following: contact time, contact duration, peak pressure time, and foot pressure, all measured in the rear foot, including the external and internal sides, the medial forefoot, including the hallux and second and third toes, and the lateral forefoot, including the fourth and fifth toes. Results: After completing the program, SOS and BAR had increased significantly in the experimental group (p < 0.001) and were significantly higher than in the control group (p < 0.05). Also foot pressure distribution, the experimental group showed significant improvements in the deviations from the ideal values in contact time (p < 0.01) and contact duration (p < 0.001) in the medial forefoot, all four parameters in the lateral forefoot (all p < 0.001 except for contact duration, p < 0.01), and foot pressure in the rear foot (p < 0.001). Discussion: Although the program in this study had very low exercise intensity, it was considered that increase in QUS parameters was observed because effective vibration and load were applied to the bone. On the foot pressure distribution, it is likely that these improvements resulted from increases in the strength of the arches and the lever function of the foot. Because the arches play a role in enhancing the strength of the three-dimensional structure of the foot, and lever plays a role in lifting calcaneus efficiently.
  2. The comparison of the plantar pressure distribution during walking in healthy university students and locomotive syndrome patients., Shiho Kurosaka, Ayumi Tanigashira, Takuma Yanaoka., 14th International Congress of Physiological Anthropology 2019 (ICPA2019), 2019/09/26, Without Invitation, English, Singapore, The purpose of this study was to compare the plantar pressure distribution (PD) during walking in healthy university students and locomotive syndrome patients. Thirty healthy university students and thirty locomotive syndrome patients have recruited in this study. The PD, during walking in the significant three areas of the foot (i.e., rearfoot [RF], medial forefoot [MF], and lateral forefoot [LF]) were measured. The timings at the contact and leave on the ground were defined to 0% and 100% of grounding time, respectively, and the PD in the RF, MF, and LF have calculated each 25% of grounding times. The PDs of RF in the healthy university students disappear at 50-75% and 75-100% of grounding times, but they in the locomotive syndrome patients remain at the same times (p<.01). PDs of MF and LF at 0-25% of grounding times in the healthy university students did not display, but they in the locomotive syndrome patients were observed (p<.001). In conclusion, the locomotive syndrome patients land the whole foot throughout walking. However, the healthy university students described bimodality PD at rear and forefoot.
  3. The effects of the FOOT program on children's running ability and foot function, Ayumi Tanigashira, Shiho Kurosaka, Ayumi Tanigashira, Shiho Kurosaka, 14th International Congress of Physiological Anthropology 2019 (ICPA2019), 2019/09/26, Without Invitation, English, This study investigated the effects in children aged 10-12 of a specifically designed exercise program that focused on the foot function (FOOT program). Fifty children aged 10-12 were divided randomly into experimental and control groups. The experimental group underwent the FOOT program for 40 min once a week for 3 months. In both groups, the plantar pressure distribution, 50m running time and toe muscle strength were evaluated at the beginning and end of the study. The plantar pressure distribution during walking was measured with a pressure plate and used to evaluate the deviation from the ideal values for the foot pressure in the rear foot (RF), the forefoot (FF). After completing the program, while the peak pressure in RF was not significantly different, amount of change in the FF pressure, toe muscle strength and 50m running time had increased significantly in the experimental group (p <.05) (p <.001) (p <.05). The FOOT program exhibited significant improvements in 50m running time and in foot function, as shown by the plantar pressure distribution and toe muscle strength. Further studies are needed to examine the outcomes of the FOOT program in other age.
