In a nutshell: This study explored the walking strategy by monitoring the characteristics of centre of pressure (COP) of gait in the elderly with type2 diabetes. It puts forward the walking strategy according to the abnormal COP trajectory. Since elderly people with diabetes have a high risk of falling, the rehabilitation nursing should be strengthened to include the training of enhancing proprioception to prevent these patients with type 2 diabetes from falling.
