Table 2 Plantar pressure parameters and VAS (mean and 95% CI) before and after MP placement

From: Correlations between subjective treatment responses and plantar pressure parameters of metatarsal pad treatment in metatarsalgia patients: a prospective study

  Pre-treatment Post-treatment Change after treatment p value
MPP (kPa) 225.8 (174.5 ~ 280.0) 199.0 (163.3 ~ 234.8) -26.7 (-52.3 ~ -1.1) 0.028
PTI (kPa·s) 34.8 (27.0 ~ 42.6) 31.9 (24.3 ~ 39.5) -2.9 (-5.0 ~ -0.9) 0.005
VAS 4.9 (4.4 ~ 5.5) 3.9 (3.1 ~ 4.7) -1.0 (-1.5 ~ -0.5) 0.001
  1. MPP, maximal peak pressure; PTI, pressure time integral; VAS, visual analog scale; CI, confidence interval.
