This is accomplished by the progressive inversion of the calcaneus. This rigid structure is important for the action of toe off. Gait Abnormalities The majority of patient gait abnormalities become present during the stance phase, considering that this is the major weight bearing phase. 11 A wide based gait can suggest dizziness from a neurologic abnormality such as cerebellar dysfunction or could suggest decreased plantar sensation as seen in diabetic neuropathy. The average step to step distance is approximately 38 centimeters.

Third Interval (40-62% of Walking Cycle) This is the period from foot flat to toe-off and is characterized by rapid ankle joint plantarflexion. This period of plantarflexion is secondary to concentric posterior calf muscle contraction. This activity is observed until approximately 50 percent of the cycle. The longitudinal arch of the foot is stabilized during this period primarily by the action of the plantar aponeurosis with a contribution from the intrinsic foot muscles. As the toes are brought into dorsiflexion, the plantar aponeurosis forces the metatarsal heads into plantarflexion.
