Various foot structures are thought to influence forefoot plantar pressures during walking. High peak plantar pressures (PPP) during walking in people with diabetes mellitus (DM) and peripheral neuropathy (PN) can cause skin breakdown. The question addressed by this study is "What are the primary forefoot structural factors that predict regional PPP during walking in groups of people with and without DM and PN?" Twenty people with DM and PN (mean age 55+/-9 years, 6 female, 14 male, BMI=33+/-8… CONTINUE READING
