A performance-related foot loading characters while performing lunging step among badminton players

The purpose of this study was to investigate the foot loading characteristics of badminton athletes and amateurs while performing the right-forward lunging step. Eight badminton male athletes and eight aged-matched college students participated the test in a stimulated badminton court. The Novel pedar insole plantar pressure measuring system was utilized to collect the right feet loading. As the results turn out, the peak pressure and force time integral of amateurs to the lateral reatfoot and lateral forefoot were obviously higher than that of badminton athletes, and athletes showed opposite plantar pressure distribution characteristics. This findings indicated the movement instability thus reducing performance of lunge, even reflect the ankle sprain risks of badminton amateurs.
