Patients with diabetic neuropathy (DN) are at an increased risk of falling. Effective balance and stability trainings should focus on proprioception to help patients with DN to reduce the incidence of falling injuries. Biodex balance exercises introduced in this study will be useful in rehabilitation clinics and will help physical therapists improve postural control of patients with DN. Also, patients with DN can practice such balance exercises on unstable tilt-platforms modified for their homes.
