How does a short period of exercise effect toe pressures and toe-brachial indices? A cross-sectional exploratory study
from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
Whilst post exercise ankle-brachial indices are commonly used to help identify peripheral arterial disease, the role of post exercise toe pressures or toe-brachial indices is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine, in a population without clinical signs of PAD, the effect that 30 s of weight-bearing heel raises has on TP and TBI values. Additionally, the ability of resting TP and TBI values to predict change in post-exercise values using the heel raise method was investigated.
