Background: So far, difference muscles activity of individuals with flat foot and normal during walking with different speeds remains unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to compare the muscle activity of shank muscles in flat and normal feet during walking on treadmill with different speeds.

Methods: 24 men (12 people with normal foot and 12 people with flat foot) with mean age22/12±1/32 year, height174/45±2/96cm and weight67/37±5/69 kg, participated in this study. The electrical activities of the Tibialis anterior (TA) and Gastrocnemius (GA) muscles were collected via Biovision 16 chanals machine when the participants were walking on the treadmill while bare feet and a speed of 1.7 and 3.5 m/s. Electromyographical parameteres for each muscle during a complete walking cycle were calaculated and t-test was used to examine the significance of the difference between two groups using SPSS version16.

Results: The statistical results indicated that TA activity muscle were significantly greater in individuals with flat foot compared with normal foot group in two different speed walking. while EMG of GA muscles were significantly greater in individuals with normal foot compared with flat foot group in two desired speeds.

Conclusion: Abnormal foot structure could be effective on change the lower limb muscle activity during Walking at different speeds. Therefore, it is suggested to be considered in the design of training programs and rehabilitation.
