Abstract: The flatfoot diagnosis in childhood belongs to the most frequent diagnosis in the orthopaedic and physiotherapist clinics. The aim of this research is to evaluate the influence of rehabilitation on the values of plantar pressures. Emed platform was used for measurement. The research group consisted of three subjects (aged 6.3 ± 1.7 years) with the flat foot diagnosis. Statistical analysis of mean pressures found the increasing of these pressures in the middle foot region after rehabilitation. Similarly, significantly decreasing of contact area were found in the region of the middle foot. The method of plantar pressure analysis can help improve a foot function and evaluate the treatment effect. This study indicates the effect of rehabilitation on foot arch in childhood.
