Abstract: Talocrural joint is major weight bearing joint of the body; since human is the only known obligate bipedals1. Therefore the body weight is transmitted to the ground through the two lower limbs. So some great features have been evolved in humans to keep the body upright. And talus is a single bone which takes the weight of the whole body. Study is done using 100 Tali (50 right sides and 50 Left sides). Measurements were similar on both sides. The measurements were lower when compared to one study showing the racial difference.
