The aim of my degree paper is to find out the connection between the takeoff leg and the flat foot. The research has been done on a sample of 42 students of department of Primary School Ljubljana Faculty of Education. The research was made in 2014/2015 school year.
The method of Clark’s angle and the Čižin method were used for determining the flatness of the feet, while for determining the takeoff leg we used low and high start. Data were entered into Excel and later analyzed with the help of the SPSS program. We measured the main statistic: minimum, maximum and average values, standard deviations, frequencies and relative frequencies.
The t-test was used for determining the differences between the left and the right foot. The connection between the flat foot and the takeoff leg was tested with the »hi 2 test«. Hypothesis were accepted with a 5% risk. After the processing of all the variables, no differences in foot flatness between the left and the right foot were confirmed. We also did not confirm the connection between the takeoff leg and the flat feet.
