The Win-Track platform is an instrument used to measure plantar pressures and gait parameters during barefoot walking. The objective of this study was to determine the test-retest reliability of the system in assessing plantar pressures and temporal gait variables between 1-step and 3-step gait protocols. A total of 30 healthy participants (18 women and 12 men; age 23.7 ± 4.75 years) were recruited for the study. The 1-step gait protocol exhibited good reliability in terms of single stance, step duration and swing duration of the left foot; stride duration of the right foot; stride length; and step length of the right foot, with intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) ranging from 0.75 to 0.88. The 3-step gait protocol showed good reliability, with ICC values ranging between 0.75 and 0.90 in cadence; step duration of the right foot; double-stance duration and swing duration of the right foot; stride length of the right foot; step length and gait cycle length of the right and the left foot; and the area covered by the first, second, and third foot. The authors concluded that the Win-Track platform provided reliable plantar pressures and temporal gait measures, and the 3-step gait protocol showed better reliability compared with the 1-step gait protocol.
