Loading character of diabetic foot in young patients during normal speed walking.


This study aims to investigate and compare the influence of plantar loading variables during gait of patients with diabetic in young ages. Subjects were divided into the following two groups: diabetic foot, 56 subjects; control group, 52 subjects. Plantar pressure distribution was measured during barefoot gait using the Novel emed platform. Both midfoot and lateral forefoot regions’ peak pressure in the diabetic foot was higher than the normal foot. Also, diabetic foot group experienced significantly higher in pressure-time integral and contact time. Those variables provided an indication of plantar loading behavior over time, and other kinesiological factors like joint deformities and mobility can be investigated in further study.
