Healthy men aged 55,39, 23.45 years were administered 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) after fasting for over 5 h; then, a 30-min self-paced walking (6-min walk and 2-min rest + 6-min walk and 2-min rest + 6-min walk and 2-min rest + 6-min walk) session was performed. While walking, the same athletic shoes were used, same with walking supports, flat insoles, and cuboid support insoles (BMZ Inc., Tokyo, Japan). The walking test was performed with eye open. The examination was performed over 30 days apart. 18F-FDG accumulation within the gastrocnemius muscle was higher, the walking speed was improved. These results suggest that the use of cuboid support insoles may improve the cadence of the lower leg muscles.
