The effects of muscular fatigue induced by intensive athletic/military marching on the stress state of the foot skeleton were studied. Digital radiographic fluoroscopy (DRG) and optical contact pressure display (CPD) were used. It was found that the pre-tribial as well as triceps surae muscular fatigue during marching results in the development of local intensified stresses within the foot's skeleton.
