Footwear customized with pressure data fails to reduce diabetic reulceration rates

But ulcer severity may be decreased In a Dutch randomized controlled trial of 171 high-risk diabetic patients, using plantar pressure measurements to confirm offloading below 200 kPa did not result in lower rates of ulcer recurrence over 18 months compared to standard custom shoes. The Dutch research team, from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, is only the latest group to be frustrated by the ongoing efforts to link therapeutic footwear to positive diabetic foot ulcer outcomes.
