Human body postural deviation during normal activities such as gait or orthostatic position can cause injuries. The paper presents an experimental study regarding the distribution of contact pressures during gait and orthostatic position, aiming to evaluate the load distribution between forefoot (FF) and rear-foot (RF), the projection of center of gravity and the support area variation while conducting stability metering and feet load distribution tests.
