Pressure distribution underneath the foot during walking in patients with a fracture of the tibia

The majority of tibial fractures require surgical fixation. Non-union is a frequent complication during the healing process of long bone fractures and occurs in about 14% of tibial fractures.

It would be desirable to be able to predict non-union at an early stage based on gait. To study how gait parameters develop in healthy healing, we assessed the pressure distribution underneath the foot throughout the healing process.
