Background: This study describes the prevalence, frequency, and type of physical activity and sport (PAS) practiced by trans persons before and after their gender disclosure (GD). Methods: A face-to-face survey was administered to 212 Spanish trans persons, aged from 10 to 62 years old. McNemar and chi-square tests were used to determine significant differences. Results: About 75.5% of the trans persons in this study engaged in PAS and more than 50% did so ≥3 times/week, which is similar as in the general Spanish population. Participation was higher in trans men (78.7%) than trans women (72%). However, GD emerges as a key issue in characterizing trans persons PAS participation. A group of 14.5% of them stopped activity after GD. Participation in nonorganized PAS was higher than in organized PAS, and this difference is greater after GD because most participants gave up organized PAS in favor of nonorganized PAS. Trans persons preferred individual sports and activities than team sports before ...

  • He wasn't kidding around considering a human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. (
  • The bones form the foundation of each foot, which is fleshed out by more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments that help the foot move, change and shift. (
  • The arches of the foot, formed by the tarsal and metatarsal bones, strengthened by ligaments and tendons, allow the foot to support the weight of the body in the erect posture with the least weight. (
  • The arch is further supported by the plantar aponeurosis, by the small muscles in the sole of the foot (short muscles of the big toe), by the tendons of the Tibialis anterior and posterior and Peronæus longus, flexor digitorum longus, flexor hallucis longus and by the ligaments of all the articulations involved.

  • Human feet have evolved to facilitate bipedal locomotion, losing an opposable digit that grasped branches in favor of a longitudinal arch (LA) that stiffens the foot and aids bipedal gait. (
  • This intricate restructuring of bones within the foot is thought to have been driven by selection for bipedalism over arboreal locomotion ( 3 ), with the latter requiring an opposable hallux for grasping branches. (

  • This human foot is missing the proximal, medial, and distal on the four toes present. (
  • While the big toe of the foot in Lucy's species was aligned with the other four toes for human-like bipedal walking, the Burtele foot has an opposable big toe like the earlier Ardi. (
  • The familiar model of a human footstep starts with pressure at the heel that quickly runs along the outer edge of the sole of the foot and then spreads inward across the ball of the foot, pushing off with the toes. (
  • But I'd look for a shoe that lets your toes wiggle and doesn't constrain foot motion. (
  • Dr Skinner predicts evolutionary changes to the human body would take place, including the development of 'opposable' big toes that could be moved like thumbs, to allow us to grip with our feet in weightless environments. (

  • The average human foot has 26 bones, each belonging to one of three regions: the tarsals of the rear foot, the metatarsals of the arch, and the phalanges that make up the toes. (
  • Warts are generally raised and fleshier when they appear on the top of the foot or on the toes. (
  • Flat footed people may also have more difficulty performing exercises that require supporting their weight on their toes. (
  • Here we develop a dynamic walking model that predicts different effects from altering foot length as opposed to foot radius, and test it by attaching rigid, arc-like foot bottoms to humans walking with fixed ankles. (
  • And that outer, "lateral" arch, which runs from just below the little toe toward the heel, has been widely assumed to be much more rigid in humans than in nonhuman great apes. (
  • As the person's foot moves through the gait cycle, the transfer of weight towards the forward end of the foot causes the rigid cap member to tilt forwardly in the shoe, enhancing the angular orientation of the foot as the toe-off position is reached. (
  • The developed model is two-dimensional, and consists of two segments, the hind-foot, mid-foot, and forefoot as one rigid body and the phalanges collectively as the second rigid body. (
  • Thus, while the mean tendency of habitual mechanics of the mid-foot in healthy humans is indeed consistent with the traditional concept of the lateral mid-foot as a relatively rigid or stabilized structure, it is clear that lateral arch stabilization in humans is not obligate and is often transient. (
  • The further studies clarified that height of the medial and lateral longitudinal arches in feet with as tibiale externum and height of the lateral longitudinal arch in the feet with congenital talipes … More equinovarus decreased. (

  • Injury to the lateral ligamentous complex occurs under excessive foot inversion and is known as a "lateral ankle sprain" 1 . (
  • This approach rests on the prevailing concept that human feet are unique in functioning with a relatively stiff lateral mid-foot, lacking the significant flexion and high plantar pressures present in non-human apes. (
  • Herein, we show that plantar pressure records with elevated lateral mid-foot pressures occur frequently in healthy, habitually shod humans, with magnitudes in some individuals approaching absolute maxima across the foot. (
  • The longitudinal arches of the foot can be divided into medial and lateral arches. (

  • Here we show direct evidence for the significance of these foot muscles in supporting the mechanical performance of the human foot. (
  • Contrary to expectations, the intrinsic foot muscles contribute minimally to supporting the arch of the foot during walking and running. (
  • Passive elastic structures are credited with supporting the LA, but recent evidence suggests that plantar intrinsic muscles (PIMs) within the foot actively contribute to foot stiffness. (
  • This configuration moved the hip muscles away from the hip joints and gave them more leverage in walking, perhaps more of an advantage than humans have today. (

  • Dataset consists of EMG activation of the Flexor Digitorum Brevis (FDB) and Abductor Hallucis (AH) muscles in addition to dynamic data of the foot and leg joints such as mechanical work and moments, as estimated by performing inverse dynamics with force plate and motion capture data. (
  • The human foot's wheel-like motion is facilitated by its plantigrade posture. (
  • If there is no benefit from its rolling motion, there remains the question of whether the human foot's plantigrade posture has any advantage, or is even a disadvantage, for walking economy. (
  • Although humans appear to be specialized for endurance running, the plantigrade posture of our feet, in which the heel contacts the substrate at the beginning of a step, seems incompatible with economical running. (
  • In this study, we tested the hypothesis that plantigrade foot posture reduces the energetic cost of transport (COT) during walking in humans. (
  • When human subjects walked with their heels slightly elevated in a 'low-digitigrade' posture, COT increased by 53% above that of normal plantigrade walking. (
  • By contrast, there was no difference in COT when subjects ran with digitigrade versus plantigrade foot posture. (
  • These observations suggest that plantigrade foot posture improves the economy of walking. (
  • Given the great distances hunter-gatherers travel, it is not surprising that humans retained a foot posture, inherited from our more arboreal great ape ancestors, that facilitates economical walking. (
  • and plantigrade foot posture may be partially responsible for this difference. (

  • By using a different lens, a longitudinal ethnographic study of the health and social consequences of the epidemic, the research reported here indicates that 2001 was a human tragedy as well as an animal one. (
  • The stiff and propulsive human foot has two distinct arches, the longitudinal and transverse.3-5 By contrast, the feet of non-human primates are flat and softer.6-8 Current understanding of foot stiffness is based on studies that focus solely on the longitudinal arch,9-14 and little is known about the mechanical function of the transverse arch. (
  • In addition to the longitudinal arches the foot presents a series of transverse arches. (
  • Collapse of the longitudinal arches results in what is known as flat feet. (
  • A person with a low longitudinal arch, or flat feet will likely stand and walk with their feet in a pronated position, where the foot everts or rolls inward. (
  • T he state of the bones suggested the foot came from an adult, but there was no way of knowing the sex, age or ancestry. (
  • The 107 include one nearly complete adult foot and assorted parts provisionally assigned to two other adults and a juvenile. (
  • The gastrointestinal tracts of the Chimpanzee, Orangutan, and adult human and a human fetus were studied and compared by Stevens and Hume in 1995. (
  • The results reveal that the PIMs have a minimal effect on the stiffness of the LA when absorbing high loads, but help stiffen the distal foot to aid push-off against the ground when walking or running bipedally. (
  • During ground contact in walking and running, the stiffness of the foot arch was not altered by the block, showing that the PIMs' contribution to arch support is minimal, probably due to their small size. (
  • These findings suggest a level of detachment between foot stiffness during gait and osteological structure, hence fossilized bone morphology by itself may only provide a crude indication of mid-foot function in extinct hominins. (

  • And what if the foot bone in question was actually from a human and not from an Australopith at all? (
  • Then they concluded that the human-looking bone belonged to an ape. (
  • AL 333-160 could actually be just what it looks like-a human foot bone. (
  • The most complete Australopith skeletons show that they had none of the skeletal features, including hip, spine, femur, and foot bone structures, that enable the uniquely human manner of walking. (

  • With a subject that varies so much from the ankle bone to the ball of the foot and continues to differ from model to model, there's no way around it: Drawing feet well takes practice. (
  • But what if the bone was actually from a human and not from Lucy at all? (
  • Similarly, a FOX News headline read, "Ancient Foot Bone Proves Prehuman Lucy Walked Tall. (
  • This bone simply looks like a human bone. (
  • So, this newly described foot bone has not proven that Lucy walked upright, since definitive proof would require a live Lucy walking, which is not likely. (
  • Is an apparently human foot bone singled out from a scrap heap of "greater than 370" bones really the best evidence for an extinct upright-walking ape? (
  • Another common accessory bone of the foot is the Os Naviculare. (
  • The mild HFMD outpatients were defined as patients with fever and vesicular lesions on their palms, feet and mouth. (
  • In particular, the nearly complete atlas of 'Little Foot' has the potential to provide new insights into the evolution of head mobility and the arterial supply to the brain in the human lineage. (
  • Thus, if humans are specialized for endurance running, why did our lineage retain plantigrade feet? (
  • [5] In some individuals, the gait pattern is largely unchanged - the leg position and foot position are identical in barefoot and shoe running - but the wedge shape of the padding moving the point of impact back from the forefoot to the midfoot. (
  • However, earlier studies have shown that smaller collision forces were generated when running forefoot strike compared to rear-foot strike. (
  • In his novel Dregs (2011) the Norwegian award-winning author Jørn Lier Horst gives a fictional explanation for the foot findings. (
  • Robin Huw Crompton , a physical anthropologist at the University of Liverpool's Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, says his findings suggest the outer arch of the healthy human foot is actually much more flexible than previously thought. (
