The aim of this study was to assess whether plantar pressures were higher in patients with active unilateral plantar diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) of greater than 3 months duration (cases) compared to patients without a foot ulcer history (diabetes control), and patients without diabetes or foot ulcer history (healthy controls).
Cases with type-2 diabetes mellitus and DFUs, type-2 diabetes controls and healthy controls were recruited for this study.
A Footscan pressure plate was used for plantar pressure assessment. The three step approach to capturing data was chosen. This method involves each participant taking two steps before landing on the pressure plate.
