Brief Summary:

Medial longitudinal arch (MLA) is a curve of the foot located at the medial side of the body and protection of the height of the MLA is an important factor for limb health.

This study was planned with the aim of investigating the response of the MLA height to the repetitive muscle activity and determine the gender-related differences.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Men
Healthy young men aged between 18-25 years
Other: repetitive heel rise activity
Participants will perform a maximal number of single-legged heel rises on a 10 degrees incline board. Participants will be permitted to apply for fingertip support at shoulder height on a wall in front of them. The test will be terminated when participants could no longer lift their heels from the incline board. The number of correct heel rises will be counted for each leg and will be used as Heel Rise Test score.

Women
Healthy young women aged between 18-25 years
Other: repetitive heel rise activity
Participants will perform a maximal number of single-legged heel rises on a 10 degrees incline board. Participants will be permitted to apply for fingertip support at shoulder height on a wall in front of them. The test will be terminated when participants could no longer lift their heels from the incline board. The number of correct heel rises will be counted for each leg and will be used as Heel Rise Test score.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Navicular Drop [ Time Frame: at first minute, change from baseline arch height at 2nd minutes ]
    Vertical distance of navicular tuberosity (highest point of the MLA) to the ground is measured for two times. First; with the foot placed in subtalar joint neutral position in full weight-bearing and second; in relaxed standing position. The difference between the two values are recorded as Navicular Drop (mm).
