The foot has an importance that is often not perceived by people, either because they do not know the functions or because of the daily routine. In addition, with modernity and facilities created by man, such as more comfortable shoes, means of transport that avoid walking and devices that make the act of sitting more present, the foot can be harmed in its development. Another point that may or may not have influenced the correct development of the plantar arch is the covid-19 pandemic, which made everyone stay in their homes, almost without moving during the day. This study aimed to analyze the plantar arch index and distribution of plantar pressures in children in the transition stage from pre-adolescence (10 years) to adolescence (12 years). For this, 7 children of the selected age group, of both sexes, who did not have musculoskeletal alterations in the foot, were selected. These children are part of the existing functional class in the chosen condominium. To obtain the data, a 50x50cm Barosccan, Podotech plantar pressure platform was used with 4,096 capacitive sensors with a sampling frequency of 50hz. In conclusion, the studied subjects presented the plantar arch as normal (IAP: 0.23), because despite the age difference, both groups are active, perform motor activities frequently and are encouraged to walk barefoot.
