Flexion location of the first metatarsophalangeal joint and the location of forefoot bend in general purpose women's footwear.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Feb 7. Epub 2018 Feb 7.

Department of Clinical and Professional Practice, School of Clinical Medicine, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa.

Background: General purpose footwear could have a built-in flexion location which may not match the anatomical fulcrum location for an individual's foot. Mismatched fulcra impact on joint function, and may delay healing of an injured first metatarsophalangeal joint (first MP joint). This study compared the location of the first MP joint in an asymptomatic sample of the South African female population to the bend location set within the lasts (used by footwear manufacturers) to find whether mismatches of the flexion locations of the joint to the bending location of the footwear were likely.
