The purpose of this study was to employ a computerized motion analysis system to identify the effect of ankle arthrodesis on the three-dimensional kinematic behavior of the rear and fore foot during level walking. A three-segment rigid body model was used to describe the motion of the foot and ankle. The results demonstrated that sagittal plane motion of the hindfoot was significantly decreased in the foot of patients having had ankle arthrodesis compared to normal subjects. The kinematic data indicated a generalized stiffness of the hindfoot on the involved foot in the sagittal plane. Sagittal plane movement in the forefoot and transverse plane movements in the hindfoot and forefoot increased in patients compared to controls.
