Background: Foot burns involve a specialized area of function, and although they involve a small total body surface area (3.5%), they can cause a significant degree of morbidity.

Methods: This study included 104 patients with burn trauma of the foot treated at the burn department of Republican Scientific Centre of Urgent Medical Aid and Inter-Regional Burn Center, Samarkand, Uzbekistan. A study of support-motor function of the foot after a burn by means of simultaneous registration of mechanograms of ankle join mobility in various terms made it possible to reveal considerable walking disturbances manifested in short-term support ability of various foot parts compared with normal.

Results: Deviations in podagrams were clearly marked during the first weeks after elimination of burn wounds, especially the duration of support ability of the plantar surface in those who experienced burns.

Conclusions: The study in separate terms after elimination of burn injury showed that the function of feet begins to regenerate in 3 to 4 months in deep foot burns.
