Background People with diabetes or diabetic polyneuropathy often experience limitations in mobility and gait. These limitations are believed to be related to disturbed muscle function and sensory information In previous studies on diabetic gait, results were confounded by a lower, preferred walking speed in people with diabetes or diabetic polyneuropathy. This study aimed to identify gait-velocity independent effects of diabetes and diabetic polyneuropathy on lower extremity kinematics and muscle activation patterns.
