Healthy subjects aged 18-35 years were enrolled in this study. The muscle strength assessment of the foot intrinsic muscles was assessed with the make test and the break test. The tests were performed with the hip and knee semiflexed in prone position with a hand-held dynamometer. The experimental protocols and methods were explained in detail to all subjects. All participants provided written informed consent in keeping with the ethical principles of the Declaration of Helsinki.
Other: Muscle Strength Assesment-Make Test
For the make test, the examiner applies resistance in a fixed position and the person being tested exerts a maximum effort against the dynamometer and examiner. The examiner is only required to sustain an isometric contraction and read the highest value on an Hand Held Dynamometer.
Other Name: Make Test
Other: Muscle Strength Assesment-Break Test
For the break test, the examiner applies resistance sufficient to overcome the maximum effort of the person being tested and cause the subject's joint to move in the opposite direction, which results in an eccentric contraction. During this test the limb must move at a constant velocity while the person being tested is asked to achieve a maximum contraction. In addition, the examiner must read the force output reading at the exact time the subject's limb begins to move from the Hand Held Dynamometer.
