Brief Summary:
The aim was to investigate with a multi-segmental foot model the kinetic and kinematic in patients with a hallux rigidus, before and after different type of surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hallux Rigidus Other: Motion Analysis

Detailed Description:
None of the patients received surgery BECAUSE of the study. We have only performed motion analysis in patients, who were already scheduled for one of the described type of surgery (prospective group) or who already previously received one the type of surgery (retrospective group).

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Control group
Healthy age matched control subjects
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Cheilectomy prospective group
Patients with hallux rigidus treated by the surgery type "cheilectomy"
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Arthrodesis prospective group
Patients with hallux rigidus treated by the type of surgery "arthrodesis"
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Mixed prospective group
Patients with hallux rigidus treated by other type of surgery: Arthoplasty, joint resection ("Keller-Brandes technique)
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Cheilectomy retrospective group
Patients after cheilectomy due to hallux rigidus
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Arthrodesis retrospective group
Patients after arthrodesis of the metatarsophalageal joint due to hallux rigidus
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).

Mixed retrospective group
Patients after other types of surgery due to hallux rigidus: arthroplasty or resection of the first metatarso-phalangeal joint
Other: Motion Analysis
3D Motion analysis with retroflective markers on the skin (Vicon camera system) of the foot and lower leg (kinematics), walking over force plate (kinetics) and pressure plates (plantar pressure distribution).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of hallux range of motion [ Time Frame: baseline (=1 day before surgery) and 1 y. after surgery for the prospective groups, more than one year after surgery for the retrospective groups ]
