Abstract

Background: - While using footwear, directly or indirectly the muscle force passing through the lower
extremity such as knee so, the present study was conducted to analyze the muscle activity of vastus medialis
obliquus in Female who are wearing shoes and who are wearing high heels. It is necessary to investigate the
effect of heel height on activation of vastus medialis obliquus muscles.
Methods:-To check the strength of vastus medialis obliquus in Individuals 50 subjects were divided into
two groups, Group 1 had individual wearing shoes and group 2 had individual wearing high heels. Strength
of vastus medialis obliquus was assessed using pressure Biofeedback for both the groups.
Result:-Unpaired t test was used in between and paired t test was used in the groups to analyze the data.
There was a significant difference in the strength of vastus medialis obliquus between both the groups(p
<0.001).
Conclusion: -This study concludes that Females wearing heels had significantly decreased vastus medialis
obliquus strength compare to the Subjects who wear Shoes.
