NORMAL GAIT AND DYNAMIC FUNCTION . PURPOSE OF THE FOOT IN AMBULATION A. Pronation (flexible adaptation) 1. Adaptation to terrain 2. Dissipate ground reaction forces (shock absorption) 3. Lower extremity internal rotation B. Supination (stable platform) . Rigid lever for propulsion . Provide stable base of support for LE weight transfer . Lower extremity external rotation . THE GAIT CYCLE . Stance Phase – 60% of gait cycle; heel strike – foot flat – heel rise – toe off . Swing Phase – 40% of gait cycle; early (acceleration) – mid – terminal (deceleration) swing . LOWER EXTREMITY KINEMATICS All movements described below are from the perspective of standing on the Right foot .
