Dynamic pressure analysis of the diabetic charcot foot

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc. 1991 Jun;81(6):281-7. doi: 10.7547/87507315-81-6-281.

Abstract

Charcot foot is a form of neuropathic osteoarthropathy, occurring in one or more joints of the foot and ankle. It is a destructive process that alters the weightbearing areas of the foot and, in many cases, results in a rocker-bottom deformity. The authors present quantitative results of dynamic pressure analysis of Charcot foot with the EMED SF pressure analysis system and propose ways in which this information may be used in the evaluation and treatment of this deformity.
