Objective : The aim of our study is to describe plantar static disorders in patients with different categories of body mass index (BMI).

Material / Patients and Methods : This is a descriptive study carried out in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation ( PMR) department of the Monastir University Hospital during the months of May and June 2020. It included patients consulting in PMR or medical staff in all BMI categories. The data analyzed were epidemiological and clinical characteristics.

Results : we collected 60 patients in our study with an average age of 47.83. The majority were women (71.7%). Twenty-three patients (38.3%) were overweight and sixteen (26.7%) had moderate obesity. Plantar static disorders were observed in 71.7 % of patients. Among those with plantar static disorders, 80% were either overweight or obese.
 Flat feet represent 84.1% of the static disorders observed. There was no statistically significant association between weight and foot pain (p = 0.275) and between weight and flat feet (p = 0.07). In contrast, there was a statistically significant association between weight and the presence of hyperpressure lesions (p = 0.009).

Discussion - Conclusion : Excess weight is often associated with areas of plantar hyperpressure which can subsequently cause pain and mechanical dermatosis, hence the value of early diagnosis and follow-up.
