Abstract

This study aims to observe the silica gel insoles for adult females foot plantar pressure changes thus to find any other factors that cause female foot pain further. Six female subjects were participated in this study, the foot pressure parameters was recorded by Novel emed pressure measurement system. Each person had walked three times under bare foot state, and with 2 layers, 4 layers, 6 layers of silica gel insoles under the heel separately. Multiple comparison results showed that different layers of silica gel pad used in experiment was sensitive to plantar pressure change. With simulated inner heel height increased, the peak pressure reduced significantly in the heel. The experimental silica gel insoles, as its special material different from common insoles, all subjects feel soft and comfortable in the experimental process, which may indicates the insoles have a cushion to foot pressure load increase.
