See the Australian Podiatry Association national journal: Stride contains an article about Ainslie’s PhD research. The journal is for members of the Australian Podiatry Association, however the cover can be seen through our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/buderimpodiatry/ or: Australian Podiatry Association Facebook. Ainslie’s work is on the foot complications in adults with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, specifically complications that affect the nerves. People with diabetes are at risk of developing neuropathy which ranges from burning sensations to pins and needles or numbness. Podiatrists assess your feet to ensure you have adequate protective sensation. Without protective sensation your feet are vulnerable to injury and this could lead to ulcers, slow healing and even amputation.
