Alpha-1 and beta-1 band power during a dynamic concentric-eccentric plantar flexion exercise were significantly lower after V300 and in the alpha-1 band after V30 in comparison to the control condition.
[26] We propose that insoles with medial longitudinal arch and transverse arch supports affect the gait cycle, and ankle joint plantar flexion degree can be reduced with proprioceptive stimulation from under the foot by applying the insole.
Although good results have been reported in the literature from arthrodesis, which is applied as the preferred choice in patients with a high functional demand, kinematic studies have shown arthrodesis to cause a shortening in step length and loss of ankle plantar flexion in the toe-off phase (14).

For static plantar flexion, coherence analysis was likewise performed for EEG and SOL; EEG and MG; and between SOL and MG.
Currently the bubble inclinometer used in this study did not have the ability to establish the vertical gravity -0- position (7) in order to determine the absolute values for dorsiflexion and plantar flexion separately.

After this, the young adults saw a decrease in the negative power at 70% and it developed to a positive power, starting the plantar flexion of the ankle joint.
Localization of tenderness is aided by resisted plantar flexion of the first ray.
The major motions of this joint are described as dorsiflexion and plantar flexion. Minor motions occur with each posterior glide with dorsiflexion and anterior glide with plantar flexion.
Although the mechanism underlying thread wrapping is not clearly defined, it is thought to be accidental or a combination of babies' plantar flexion behavior and overall clothing (2).
Passive dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the first hallux elicited pain only at the extreme ends of range of motion.
