ABSTRACT: In this research kinematics parameters derived from ground reaction forces were evaluated to limit differential diagnoses and measure the degree of disabilities during walking among neuropathic subjects. 25 neuropathic subjects affected by drop foot and 20 normal subjects were enrolled in the study. Each subject was tested in average 10±2 times for calculating kinetics parameters derived from ground reaction forces. The results revealed that the center of pressure displacement pattern in sole of foot can be a good index for differential diagnoses and measuring the degree of disabilities. This research can extend the clinical applications of ground reaction force plate and introduce suitable criteria to measure the degree of disability among neuropathic patients.
