Effects of a 12-Week Interventional Exercise Programme on Muscle Strength, Mobility and Fitness in Patients With Diabetic Foot in Remission #RCT #ActAgainstAmputation @ALPSlimb

Great idea and RCT from our SALSAmigos from IKEM in Prague. Objectives:┬áDiabetic foot syndrome (DFS) is a serious late diabetic complication characterised by limited joint mobility and other biomechanical and muscle abnormalities. Aim: To evaluate the effect of an interventional exercise programme on anthropometric parameters, muscle strength, mobility and fitness in patients with diabetic foot in... Continue Reading →

Effect of Exercise Volume on Plantar Microcirculation and Tissue Hardness in People With Type 2 Diabetes

While only about 10-15% of the patients had peripheral neuropathy and were, therefore, at risk for ulceration, these data from Ren and coworkers are nonetheless compelling. Perhaps a subsequent study for high risk patients? Objective: Exercise has been reported to be beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM), but exercise, especially weight-bearing exercise, may increase... Continue Reading →

Immediate Effects of Weight-Bearing Calf Stretching on Ankle Dorsiflexion Range of Motion and Plantar Pressure During Gait in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus

Terrific work by our colleagues from Kobe, Tokyo, Nara and Osaka, respectively! High plantar pressure is a risk factor for diabetic foot ulcers, and it is known that restriction of ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (ROM) causes high plantar pressure. Stretching is a non-invasive and general means to improve ROM; however, the effect of stretching... Continue Reading →
