Abstract The measurement of center of pressure has been widely used in the evaluation of foot function. This article will describe center of pressure and indicate how it can be used to calculate moments about the joint axes of the foot. Various uses of center of pressure described in the literature will be examined. A model based on the use of the location of center of pressure relative to the location of the subtalar joint axis will be proposed as a theoretical explanation of selected foot pathologies and their treatment.
