Influence of Index Plus and Index Minus Foot on Static and Dynamic Balance among Collegiate Girls
Keywords:Index plus and minus foot, static and dynamic balance, flamingo balance test, star excursion balance test.
Background: Index plus foot is defined as the first metatarsus being lengthier than the second whereas
the Index minus foot is a condition where the second metatarsus is extended than the first metatarsal. The
prevalence of index minus foot is higher among females, a study on balance with index minus and index
plus foot on normal individual females are lacking. Objective: The objective of the study is to determine the
influence of index plus and index minus foot among collegiate girls Methodology: It is a non- experimental
study with sample size of 100 are taken and tested for both static and dynamic balance. Outcome Measures:
Flamingo balance test and Star Excursion Balance Test. Results: The mean and standard deviation of
flamingo balance test for index plus group is 9.24+2.77423 and the index minus is 15.04+1.6655. The mean
value of star excursion balance test for both groups resulted with less noticeable difference. Conclusion:
The study concludes that there is a difference in static balance, whereas there is no differences in dynamic
balance among collegiate girls.
