INSTEP (Closed to Recruitment)
Sometimes people can walk in a way that puts too much pressure on specific areas of their feet, such as the balls or heels. This can lead to the area becoming quite painful and the skin breaking into a wound. For people with diabetes, this may be a particular problem, because their foot wounds may be slower to heal.
This study is comparing the effectiveness of a novel insole with a standard insole for people with diabetic neuropathy. It aims to determine if using a new insole can help to reduce pressure points on the feet, therefore reducing discomfort, and improving wound healing.
This study has now closed to recruitment.
