Posture is human fundamental ability that deals with the scientific and clinical study of body position in space, in order of maintaining balance in both static and dynamic conditions, in relation to the psychic functions, biochemical and somatosensory individual for the maintenance or achievement of health status. The aim of the present study was to examine if a medical device (plantar), called RUGRAN, can improve muscle rehabilitation in pain syndromes muscle-tendon for the correction and stabilization postural. The static pedobarographic evaluation revealed significantly higher values in terms of forefoot peak pressure, total plantar force and total contact area in subject without RUGARN plantar, compared to subjects with RUGARN plantar. This is the first study that investigated the pedobarographic changes in subjects with the RUGARN plantar. The static pedobarographic findings we observed while the subjects were standing revealed no difference of force distribution and contact area between forefoot and rearfoot and this finding did not support the hypothesis that the centre of the body shifts to forward because of excessive adipose tissue causing excessive forefoot loading.
