Our Dr. Zhao Xiaoguang's paper- the Impacts of Different Arch Height on Ankle Strength and Physical Performance-was published on, the sports science journal, April 2018, the vol. 38 sent. The aim of that study was to investigate the possible correlation of arch height with ankle muscle strength and physical performance by assessing arch height index (AHI), ankle muscle strength and physical performance including agility, force and proprioception was tested randomly to provide scientific advice and reference for clinical work related to ankle.
That study found out that compared with the medium AHI, the high AHI had lower plantar flexion and inversion peak torque. The high AHI also had lower peak torque per body weight value for plantar flexion and inversion. No significant ankle muscle strength difference was observed between the low and medium AHI. Additionally, AHI was negatively correlated with eversion and inversion peak torque, and negatively associated with plantar flexion, eversion and inversion peak torque per body weight (R ranged -0.26 to -0.36, P＜0.050). But no significant relationship was found between arch height and physical performance. In the process of experiment and writing, the thesis was supported and helped by his college leaders and colleagues.
Dr. Zhao Xiaoguang received his doctorate from the University of tsukuba in Japan. He has written a monograph in English and published 5 academic papers in English journals, including 4 papers included by SCI. This is the first time his paper has published in the domestic authority of sports science. The publication of the paper is a recognition of its scientific research level, at the same time, it plays an important role in promoting the improvement and development of academic level in the future.
