 Aims and background: The Survey of plantar pressure variables provides better understanding of the potential injury to the plantar area nowadays. The aim of this study was the Comparison of plantar pressure variables during walking in male and female. Materials and methods: The present study included 15 males and 15 female. A foot scan set (sampling rate: 300Hz) was used for measuring plantar pressure variables during walking in male and female. Independent sample t-test was used for statistical analysis. Finding: Results demonstrated that the Medio-lateral (p=0/001) and anterior-posterior (p=0/001) displacement of the center of pressure during walking in male is greater than  female. Also fifth metatarsal peak plantar pressure during walking in male is greater than female (p= 0/004). In addition peak force first (p=0/043), third (p=0/049), fourth (p= 0/012), fifth (p= 0/011) and heel medial (p= 0/049) metatarsals during walking in male greater than that female. Conclusion: According to the findings of this study, the increase in Center of pressure fluctuations and pressure and forces during walking in men and the relationship between pressure and force pattern with injury, indicates more susceptibility to injury during walking in men.
