Stability of Diabetic Patients
Do you have diabetes and reduced feeling in your feet?
- If so, you may qualify for a study evaluating different specialty footwear used for treating diabetic foot wounds.
- Participation in the study requires one visit to the Human Performance Laboratory at Rosalind Franklin University.
- After completing a screening process, volunteers that are found to be eligible to participate will complete a set of standing and walking tests while wearing varied footwear. The tests are designed to determine how the varied footwear options impact users’ stability.
Individuals that complete the study will receive $50 compensation for their travel and time.
