NeuropathyDetect: tests for early detection of Neuropathy in people with Diabetes

IMG_1632

Some patients affected by Diabetes could develop Peripherical Neuropathy. At Fraunhofer Portugal, in the scope of the Master Thesis NeuropathyDetect, researchers are studying the gait of people with Diabetes. COLABORAR recruited volunteers for the tests, consisting in gait tests using sensors. Researchers could analyse the walking patterns of people with and without diabetes.

Thank you to all the participants, both at the centers and Fraunhofer’s facilities, for participating in the tests, allowing researchers to take an important step towards the identification of early signs of peripheral neuropathy in people with Diabetes.
