It is well known that mechanical forces acting within the soft tissues of the foot can contribute to the formation of neuropathic ulcers in people with diabetes. Presently, only surface measurements of plantar pressure are used clinically to estimate risk status due to mechanical loading. It is currently not known how surface measurements relate to the three-dimensional (3-D) internal stress/strain state of the foot. This article describes the development of a foot-loading device that allows… CONTINUE READING
