Biomechanical alterations in diabetes are believed to contribute to plantar neuropathic ulceration. This exploratory study documents clinical measures of flexibility and strength, alongside three-dimensional biomechanical gait data of the lower limb, in 10 patients with a history of neuropathic ulceration (DNU; n=10). Comparative data is presented from age and gender matched groups with; diabetes peripheral neuropathy and no ulcer history (DWN; n=10), diabetes and no peripheral neuropathy (DNN… CONTINUE READING
