Abstract

Although millions of women daily wear high-heeled shoes, the potential detrimental effects of high-heeled shoes on the development of degenerative joint disease are well known [1, 2, 3]. Anyway, there is not yet a complete knowledge of the changes of the body center of mass (CoM) position due to heel height. The purpose of the study was to quantitatively compare the 3D displacement of the CoM [4], also focusing on its upper and lower components, during flat-heeled and high-heeled gait.
