What is a stop?

The word "stop" is a term with multiple meanings. We will understand what a stop is in each of the meanings of a given term.

Foot as part of the body

Probably, most often the word "foot" we have to hear in the meaning - part of the body, the lower part of the lower limb. The scientific definition of a word in this sense is as follows - the distal part of the limb of stop-walking tetrapods, which is a set, which is in direct contact with the ground and serves as a support for standing and moving.

The foot has a vaulted design with a mass of joints that allow it to be flexible and resilient. Interestingly, there are 52 bones in the foot, with a total of 206 in the human body. Thus, one fourth of all human bones are in the foot.
