What the latest research reveals about plantar tissue stiffness in patients with diabetes

Quantification of the mechanical properties of the plantar tissues of patients with diabetes is not extensively studied. Existing models typically favored linear or single-layer models of deformity. However, in a recently published study using a multilayer, non-linear model to assess plantar tissue stiffness in this high-risk population, Kwak and colleagues have provided great insights on this subject.1 

The study involved 30 patients, 10 each in “healthy young,” “healthy old,” and “old diabetic” cohorts.1
