Abstract
The authors studied 100 normal children from the general population of both genders with ages ranging from 5 to 9 years old in order to evaluate the plantar arch index and the flat-feet prevalence. The flat-feet evaluation was obtained by means of the footprint and the plantar arch index (IP), which establishes the ratio between central and posterior regions of this footprint, determining a mean IP and a limit to the flat-foot. They conclude that the plantar arch index is easy to obtain from footprints and that there are no differences in terms of gender or age. The mean values of the plantar arch index within this age group are stable and range from 0.61 to 0.6...
