Annual Conference 2021, ACC Liverpool

Foot and lower limb biomechanics in diabetes

Professor Neil Reeves, Professor of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Faculty Head of Research and Knowledge Exchange, Manchester Metropolitan University 

Learning objectives

  • Diabetic neuropathy alters gait biomechanics with implications for foot ulceration, unsteadiness and falls
  • Daily measurement and monitoring of foot pressures with patient feedback reduces diabetic foot ulcer incidence
  • Sedentary time may play a role in diabetic foot ulcer development
  • Novel interventions for diabetic neuropathy can help reduce unsteadiness and falls risk
