Abstract

Percutaneous axial extensometers were mounted on the medial cortex of the midtibial diaphysis in seven male volunteers and the effect of three different shoes on in vivo peak-to-peak axial compression-tension strains measured during dynamic loading. Zohar shoes had lower axial strains and strain rates during treadmill walking than Nike Air Max running shoes or Israeli infantry boots. During running on a running track, there was no statistically significant difference between the axial strains or strain rates between the shoes tested. Shoe gear can modify tibial strains and strain rates that contribute to the development of tibial stress fractures.
