The aim of this paper is to study the distribution of body weight through the normal foot and the flat foot. A study of the distribution of body weight on the sole of the foot has been reported by several authors (Elftman 1934, Holden and Muncey 1953, Morton 1964, Bauman and Brand 1963, Bauman et al. 1963, Drabble and Hutton 1972, Lereium and Hanssen 1973, Venkatappaiah and Ramanathan 1974, Arcan and Brull 1976, Scranton and McMaster 1976, Beirlein 1977, Ghosh et al. 1979, Cavanagh and Michiyoshi 1980). Quite a few of them attempted to compare the weight distribution under normal foot with that of the feet of persons afflicted with leprosy, polio, foot drop and those with amputated feet. In the present study an attempt has been made to compare the static weight distribution in normal foot with that in flat foot.
