Diabetic foot ulcers are systemic diseases that affect all blood vessels within the human body. From major blood vessels to microvasculature, hardening, thickening, and narrowing of blood vessels ultimately results to diminished blood flow to end organs. The detrimental effects of peripheral vascular disease are well recognized across medicine, particularly with regards to diabetic foot ulcers. Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) are common across all fields of medicine, including but not limited to: orthopedics, vascular surgery, podiatry, general internal medicine, and infectious disease...

PURPOSE: This work shows an effective methodology to evaluate the dynamic viscoelastic behavior of silicones for application in podiatry. The aim is to characterize, compare their viscoelastic properties according to the dynamic stresses they can be presumably subjected when used in podiatry orthotic applications. These results provide a deeper insight which extends the previous creep-recovery results to the world of dynamic stresses developed in physical activity. In this context, it shoulod be taken into account that an orthoses can subjected to a set of static and dynamic shear and compressive forces...

Interprofessional learning (IPL) can influence affective domain development of students through teaching activities that facilitate learning with, from, and about other professions. Current quantitative evidence offers limited explanation of how this learning is achieved within IPL programmes. This article tests a conceptual framework drawn from theories on IPL and affective domain development (attitudes, values, and behaviours) to explain what works for whom, when, and in what circumstances. The objectives of the study were twofold: to evaluate the impact of the IPL programme on the student's attitudes and values, and to identify behaviour changes in clinical practice towards interprofessional working...
