The Reduction of 1st Metatarsal Plantar Pressures With a Novel Offloading Device (the Mandakini) in a Singaporean Population

Abstract \ nAimsThere is an overall absence of accessible and inexpensive offloading methods for diabetic foot ulcer. Individuals rated their comfort levels in each condition on an aesthetic analogue scale from 1 to 10. Results Statistically significant reductions in PP and PTI of 43 ± 12 kPa and 14 ± 4 kPa. s specifically were observed at the 1st metatarsal with the Mandakini compared to control. Reductions were nonetheless significantly less than SCF which lowered PP and PTI by 83 ± 11 kPa and 28 ± 3 kPa. s specifically contrasted to control. No statistically substantial difference in CT was observed with the Mandakini contrasted to control. Convenience degrees were not substantially different between the Mandakini and SCF with means 5. 7 ± 1. 8 and 6. 2 ± 2. 1 respectively. Future pressure studies on patients with diabetic issues will supply far better depictions of the Mandakini's efficiency on the target population.
