It will help in improvising the design of currently used prosthetics (based on their radius of curvature values). They act as an indicator in assisting the alignment of prosthetic leg components. The analysis was done using a self-designed inverted-pendulum like apparatus in three different conditions: bare feet, heels and shoes. The centre of pressure coordinates were obtained using a force platform and Visual 3d software and were transformed from a laboratory based system to shank based system. The ankle-feet roll over shapes were plotted using origin and excel.

For example, research done in 2004 proved that preterm births are common among non-Hispanic African Americans women at 17.8 percent and least among the Asians and the Pacific Islanders women at 11.5 percent.
