Abstract

This study aimed to investigate whether there is a difference in foot morphology and center of gravity sway between dominant and nondominant legs in young healthy adults. Fifty­two university students were included in the study,andthedominant leg was determined by observing the movements of three items (kick the object,move at the start of walking, put on first shoes). Foot morphology and centerofgravity sway were also measured. The dominant and nondominant leg were compared for all subjects and for 23 subjects whose dominant leg was ipsilateral to all three items. The results showed no significant differences in any of the indices between the groups (p ?0.05). This study suggests that there is no difference in foot morphology or balance function between dominant and nondominant legs in young healthy adults.
