Improvements in lower-limb muscle strength and foot pressure distribution with foot care in frail elderly adults: A randomized controlled trial from Japan
from BMC Geriatrics
Abnormalities in the feet and toenails are common among the elderly and may increase the risk of falls. This study aimed to investigate the changes in toe-gap force, knee-gap force, foot pressure distribution, the ability to perform activities of daily living, subjects’ feelings and behaviors, and physical function resulting from daily lifestyle modification and foot care.
