The Plantar Pressures of Patients with Diabetes Mellitus

Some researchers do a research,the results of this study demonstrate that an unsupervised range-of-motion exercise program can reduce peak plantar pressures in the diabetic foot. Given that high plantar pressures have been linked to diabetic neuropathic ulceration, it may be possible to reduce the risk of such ulceration with this therapy.
Cutaneous ulceration is one of the most serious sequelae that can occur in the diabetic foot.Unresolved, a diabetic foot ulceration may eventually lead to lower-extremity amputation.Insensitivity, dehydrated integument, limited joint mobility, and repetitive pressures have been suggested to contribute to dermal pathology and eventual ulceration.
