Diagnosis of Hallux Valgus by Using a Foot Pressure Platform as an Alternative to Radiological Images
Hallux Vagus is a common deformity which affects the first metatarsalphalangeal joint. The current diagnostic tool is using X-ray which is expensive and includes radiation exposure. The current study is aimed at using the foot pressure platform as an alternative method for diagnosis and evaluation of the deformity. The main subjects will be recruited from orthopaedic outpatient clinics.
The recruited subjects will undergo the non-invasive and radiation free study by walking on a pressure platform. Then their pressure data will be correlated with their radiological study which has already been done in the clinic. The aimed outcome of the study is use the foot pressure platform as first line of diagnosis and evaluation of the Hallux Valgus deformity.
