Twenty-five control subjects, fifteen subjects with Type 2 and ten subjects with Type 1 diabetes were examined to compare motor control during walking in a linear path and during turns. To eliminate the contribution of sensory neuropathies to the feet and myopathies of the lower leg muscles, subjects were selected with no sensory impairment in their feet or muscle strength deficits. To measure deviations in gait and motor control errors, timing of gait was measured from foot sensors worn in the… CONTINUE READING
