The Influence of Running Shoes on the Biomechanics of the Foot and Lower Limb
Langley, Ben 2015. The Influence of Running Shoes on the Biomechanics of the Foot and Lower Limb. PhD Thesis University of East London Health, Sports and Bioscience
Running shoes are designed to reduce injury risk and enhance performance. In line with traditional running injury paradigms running shoes aim to reduce the magnitude and/or rate of foot motion and impact loading. While numerous studies have explored the influence of different shoe modifications upon these parameters, limited work has explored how different types of conventional running shoe influence foot and lower limb kinematics. Therefore the overarching aim of this thesis was to determine the influence of different types of running shoe on shod foot and lower limb motion during running.
