AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What role do the pathomechanics of physical activity play in the formation and healing of diabetic foot ulcers?

Although the presence of a relationship between physical activity and diabetic foot ulcers is widely accepted, there is limited understanding of this relationship. Most studies to date have included sample sizes less than 100 participants and monitored physical activity for less than 6 months (often for only a period of several weeks). This prospective longitudinal study will evaluate the association of physical activity with the formation and subsequent healing of diabetic foot ulcers.
