About the medical research:

Our research in diabetic peripheral neuropathy evaluates the effect of DPN on balance during sitting down and standing up. The research also tests the capability of balance recovery and muscle force production on leg muscles. Our study can identify the effect of DPN, which helps us to develop a better rehabilitative program for older adults with peripheral neuropathy.
All the procedures related to this study have been accepted by the University of Texas at Austin institutional review board (IRB). If you are interested and want to get more information, please call us at (512) 471-9228.
