The purpose of this study was to develop a cadaveric model for evaluating the relative motion across joint segments in the foot under simulated physiologic loading conditions. The specific aims were to 1) Develop a multi-axis testing platform that simulates three-dimensional (3D) loading conditions through the foot and ankle complex (Achilles load, tibial compression, and internal/external rotation) in a sequential or simultaneous manner, and 2) Evaluate and compare the three-dimensional (3D) kinematics between specific bones of interest in the foot for each individual cadaveric specimen.
