Plantar pressure-measurement technology is being increasingly used by podiatric physicians and surgeons in both clinical practice and research. The authors present normal reference-range values for peak pressure, mean pressure, and pressure-time integral obtained from 30 healthy subjects using a two-step recording technique and the EMED-SF system, as background for proposed clinical trials. Normative data of this type are essential for clinical practice in the comparison of plantar pressure-measurement values of individual patients with those of normal, asymptomatic feet.
