Abstract

In this study, we compared and analyzed the foot-gripping strength, quadriceps femoris muscle strength and the time taken to reach the maximum grip strength on the dominant and non-dominant feet of 15 healthy men (mean age: 22.4 ± 5.7, mean height: 170.2 ± 5.4 cm, mean weight: 62.3 ± 8.7 kg) (30 legs). The dominant foot was determined as the foot which kicks a ball, the function foot, and the foot which launches out the long jump was determined as the supporting leg. Comparing between the function foot and the non-function foot, the supporting foot and non-supporting foot, there were no significant differences in foot-gripping strength, quadriceps femoris muscle strength and the time taken to reach the maximum grip strength. This study could not show any significance in the foot-gripping function of the dominant and non-dominant feet and the quadriceps femoris function. We will need to consider analysis of other variables.<br>
