Peripheral sensory neuropathy seems to be the main risk factor for diabetic foot ulceration. Previous studies demonstrated that stochastic resonance can improve the vibrotactile sensation of diabetic patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Vibro-medical insole on pressure and vibration sensation in diabetic patients with mild-to-moderate peripheral neuropathy. A total of 20 patients with mild-to-moderate diabetic neuropathy were included in the pre-test and post-test clinical trial study. Vibro-medical insole consists of medical insole and vibratory system. Medical insole was made independently for each participant and vibratory system was inserted in it. Pressure and vibration sensation were evaluated before and after 30-min walking with Vibro-medical insole. Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments and tuning fork were used to evaluate pressure and vibration sensation, respectively. Pressure sensation showed significantly improvement using Vibro-medical insole at the heel, first and fifth metatarsophalangeal heads, and hallux of both feet in all participants (p < 0.001). Vibration sensation also improved at the big toe of both feet with 256 Hz tuning fork (p < 0.05) but no statistically significant effect was found with 128 Hz tuning fork (p > 0.05). Vibro-medical insole significantly improved pressure and vibration sensation of the foot in diabetic patients with mild-to-moderate peripheral neuropathy. The results suggest that Vibro-medical insole can be used for daily living activities to overcome sensory loss in diabetic neuropathy patients
