[Purpose] To compare toe grip strength in the presence or absence of an ankle immobilization belt and to examine the relationship between toe grip strength or toe pressure and physical function. [Subjects and Methods] We enrolled 18 healthy young women and measured their toe grip strength, toe pressure, gait function, and balance function in the presence and absence of an ankle immobilization belt. [Results] Two-way analysis of variance revealed significant differences. A significant main effect was observed in the measurement method and measurement conditions. The relationships between toe grip strength and physical function and toe pressure and physical function were different.
