Can a Pair of Next-Gen High Tops Prevent Amputation? Results of a Novel Exotendon/Exoskeleton Study @keckmedusc @diabetestechsoc

A next-generation “exotendon/exoskeleton” modification to high tops may bring out transformational differences in how we treat people with diabetes– and beyond. Here are the results of a pilot study from SALSA/iCAMP at USC, University of Arizona, Baylor College of Medicine and the Results Group just published today.

The reduction in pressure appears to be nearly that of works we and others did many years ago in Achilles tendon lengthening.
