Plantar pressures are elevated in people with longstanding diabetes-related foot ulcers during follow-up

The enclosed data reports on a longitudinal observational study which assessed plantar pressures in a cohort of active diabetic foot ulcer patients over six months in comparison to age and sex matched diabetes controls without a history of foot ulcers. Twenty-one cases and 69 controls started the study and 16 cases and 63 controls completed the study. The peak plantar pressures and pressure-time integrals were assessed at three visits (baseline, first-follow up at 3 months and second follow-up at 6 months). For the first time the study results demonstrated that plantar pressures remain elevated at sites of ulceration throughout follow-up in people with foot ulcers with very little change over time.
