'Jaworski JM, Aleksandrowicz R, 1992: A Comparison of Three Methods of Plantographic Foot Excavation Assessment. Anthropologie (Brno) 30, 2: 197-198'.
 
Abstract
Basing on results of cross-sectional medical and anthropometric examinations of 1648 5-19 year-old children (839 boys, 809 girls) from Katowice conurbation, the authors estimated mathematical interdependences between values of Chippaux-Šmiřák, Wejsflog and Schwartz-Clarke plantographic indexes of foot excavation. In the light of statistical analysis it can be stated that foot excavation assessment by means of one of the three analysed methods is sufficient to assess both longitudinal and transverse arch of foot in screening examination.
