Toe functions have little effect on dynamic balance ability in elderly people

I recently came across a paper below (1) which looked at the foot and balance in the elderly . The authors used a machine which measured the ability of the toes to apply force whilst curled around a bar as one of their main measures of toe function . It is my understanding that toe curls do not measure the toe flexing strength of the intrinsic muscles of the foot ,which are known to be..
