Difficulties in walking of Diabetes Neuropathy (DN) patients results in higher risk of falling and injuries.  The goal of this CEU course is to investigate the recruitment of Task-Oriented (TO) motor training to determine influences on the gait characteristics of DN patients as an alternative to the traditional gait training.  This course is based on an article by BioMed Central Ltd.
