Introduction: Investigating plantar pressure variables today gives a correct understanding of possible injuries to the soles of the feet. The present study was the effect of six weeks of trampoline exercises on the plantar pressure and quality of life of people with diabetic neuropathy.
Methodology: The current research is semi-experimental and applied in which pre-test and post-test with control group were used. 30 neuropathic patients were selected in a purposeful and available manner, and then they were randomly divided into two experimental and control groups (n=15). The experimental group performed 3 sessions of 60 minutes trampoline exercises for six weeks. Before and after the exercise period, the variables of maximum plantar pressure of the patients were evaluated by foot scan machine.
Results: The inferential analysis of the data was done using the statistical test of covariance (P=0.05). The research results showed that trampoline exercises had an effect on the maximum pressure of the soles of the feet while walking (P=0.01).
Conclusion: According to the findings of the research, six weeks of trampoline exercises have a positive effect on the maximum plantar pressure of patients with diabetic neuropathy, and these exercises can be used in the physical rehabilitation process of diabetic patients.
