Abstract

Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex disorder affecting subjects by multiple system impairments. Gait problems are common in subjects with MS and various factors such as; ataxia, hypertonic muscles or/and seconder musculoskeletal system deformities affect the normal plantigrade contact by disturbing accommodation of foot to the ground while walking. The aim of this study was investigating the dynamic plantar pressure distribution and time of maximum pressure in subjects with MS and determining the differences from healthy subjects (HS).
