AIM To investigate the association of limited joint mobility (LJM) and plantar foot pressure in Asian Indian diabetic subjects. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The LJM and plantar pressure were measured in 345 consecutive subjects attending the foot clinic. The study groups were: Control-non-diabetic controls (n=50), DM-diabetic patients without neuropathy (n=100),(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of Tip-therm, a temperature discriminator, in making an early diagnosis of distal symmetrical polyneuropathy in diabetic patients and to compare its effectiveness with the Semmes-Weinstein monofilament and biothesiometry, which are established methods of diagnosing neuropathy in diabetic patients. PATIENTS AND(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to determine the profile of diabetes foot infections in south Indian diabetic subjects. The causative factors for delayed wound healing and the recurrence of infection were also studied. METHODS During a period of 6 months, 374 patients who had undergone some surgical procedure for foot infection were available for follow-up(More)
The wireless network based on radio-over-fiber (RoF) technology is a very beneficial solution in order to meet the ever increasing demand for larger transmission bandwidth. In this paper, a cost effective full duplex RoF transport system with remodulation using Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) is proposed. The system is capable of delivering a data rate up to 1(More)
AIMS To look for changes in nerve conduction velocity (NCV) in early stages of glucose intolerance, i.e. in impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and in asymptomatic newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetic subjects (NDD). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 225 subjects were categorized as: Group 1: Subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), Group 2: IGT subjects and(More)
