Foot Tapping’s outcome parameters

Discover the Foot Tapping test's role in assessing lower limb neuromuscular function for athletic performance. Explore skip counts, skip frequency, plantar pressure distribution, and center of pressure outcomes.
Foot Tapping Outcome Parameters: Analyzing Lower Limb Neuromuscular Function

The Foot Tapping test is applied to assess the capabilities of the lower limb neuromuscular system in relationship to athletic performance.

The main outcome parameter is Total Skip Count (Fig-1, top left). Mean Skip Frequency (Fig-1, bottom left), given in skips per seconds, results from the Total Skip Count. #

Foot Tapping Test Outcomes: Skip Count, Frequency, and Pressure Distribution

An example of a qualitative outcome parameter is the plantar pressure distribution (Fig-1, middle), averaged across all skips. In this example, there is a higher pressure peak in the area of the right big toe compared to the left.

Further numerical outcomes are Mean Longitudinal and Transversal Skip Point (Fig-1, right), which relate to the center of pressure (COP) of the foot on the floor in anterior-posterior and medio-lateral direction, respectively. Here, the skip point in longitudinal direction of both feet is similar, while it is shifted in the medial direction on the right compared to the left foot.
