The Role of Pedobarography and Therapeutic Padding in the Management of Hyperkeratosis due to Mechanical Stress

DOI: 10.2478/jim-2019-0003


Hyperkeratotic lesions result from continuous mechanical action on the skin forming a callus or a corn. The accumulation of horny layers will increase pressure, creating a vicious cycle. We present a new approach based on relieving pressure or friction, strictly based on the results of pedography (pedobarography).
