The aim of this paper is to provide a general review of the computational models of the human foot. The field of computational simulation in biomechanics has significantly advanced in the last three decades. Medicine and engineering fields increasingly collaborate to analyze biological systems. This study seeks a link between two areas of knowledge to achieve a better understanding between clinicians and researchers. The review includes two-dimensional and three-dimensional, detailed and simplified, partial- and full-shape models of the lower limb, ankle and foot. Practical issues in computational modeling, tissue constitutive model approaches and pioneering applications are extensively discussed. Recent challenges and future guidelines in the field of foot computational simulation are outlined. Although this study is focused on foot modeling, the main ideas can be employed to evaluate other parts of the body. The advances in computational foot modeling can aid in reliable simulations and analyses of foot pathologies, which are promising as modern tools of personalized medicine.
