Dynamic arch height in runners differs significantly from static measurement

Dynamic measures of arch height in runners are significantly different from static measures, according to research from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. The investigators assessed 16 healthy college-aged runners, who ran an average of 15 to 30 miles per week. Arch height was assessed using the Oxford Foot Model with the participants barefoot, first while standing on a treadmill and then while jogging; the dynamic measurement was taken at the point of peak knee flexion.
