Lower extremity muscle strength is reduced in people with type 2 diabetes, with and without polyneuropathy, and is associated with impaired mobility and reduced quality of life.
AIM The purpose of the present study was to distinguish the effects of both diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2) and diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) on mobility, muscle strength and health related quality ofExpand

Calculation of plantar pressure time integral, an alternative approach.
In plantar pressure measurement, both peak pressure and pressure time integral are used as variables to assess plantar loading. However, pressure time integral shows a high concordance with peakExpand

Motor nerve decline does not underlie muscle weakness in type 2 Diabetic neuropathy
Introduction: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) patients may have decreased muscle strength. This decline can have multiple causes, among them diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). We sought to determine theExpand

Lower leg muscle strengthening does not redistribute plantar load in diabetic polyneuropathy: a randomised controlled trial
BackgroundHigher plantar pressures play an important role in the development of plantar foot ulceration in diabetic polyneuropathy and earlier studies suggest that higher pressures under the forefootExpand

Increased forefoot loading is associated with an increased plantar flexion moment.
The aim of this study was to identify the cascade of effects leading from alterations in force generation around the ankle joint to increased plantar pressures under the forefoot. Gait analysisExpand

The association between glucose metabolism status, diabetes severity and a history of fractures and recent falls in participants of 50 years and older—the Maastricht Study
SummaryIn this cohort of relatively young and well-treated participants with type 2 diabetes, we found no association between diabetes status and a history of previous fractures and recent falls.Expand

Strength training affects lower extremity gait kinematics, not kinetics, in people with diabetic polyneuropathy.
Increased forefoot loading in diabetic polyneuropathy plays an important role in the development of plantar foot ulcers and can originate from alterations in muscle strength, joint moments and gaitExpand

Wetenschappelijk onderzoek geïmplementeerd in het onderwijs: "Kritiek mag!"
In de workshop zal worden gepresenteerd hoe het onderwijs in niveaus is ingedeeld in het curriculum. Vervolgens voeren de deelnemers een opdracht uit, vergelijkbaar met zoals deze wordt aangebodenExpand
PS10 - 52. Specific strength training enhances muscle strength and functional mobility in diabetic patient with polyneuropathy
Diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) is a common co morbidity in diabetic patients. It has been associated with diminished muscle strength, impaired mobility and decreased quality of life (QoL). The purposeExpand
