Comparación de la amortiguación durante la marcha con calzado de montaña respecto a la marcha sin calzado

  • Jesús Cámara Universidad del País Vasco.
Palabras clave: botas de montaña, fuerza de impacto, gradiente de carga, plantillas viscoelásticas

Resumen

Los objetivos del presente estudio fueron determinar la influencia de las botas de montaña y de las plantillas viscoelásticas durante la marcha sobre la producción de la fuerza de impacto y sobre su gradiente de carga. 11 sujetos sanos y físicamente activos formaron parte del estudio. Se registraron la producción de la fuerza de impacto y su gradiente de carga durante la marcha sin calzado y durante la marcha con botas de montaña y con tres plantillas viscoelásticas. Las botas de montaña redujeron la producción de la fuerza de impacto. Las plantillas Sorbothane Composite © e Integrale © implantadas en las botas ayudaron a reducir en mayor medida la producción de esta fuerza.
