Figure 1

Cutaneous blood cell flux in arbitrary units (AU) presented as . BM indicates baseline measurement before loading. 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 60 indicate the time points after loading of the skin (in minutes). (a) Cutaneous blood cell flux measurements after the application of pressure and shear. DM PNP+ vs. control () at this time point. DM PNP- vs. control () and DM PNP+ vs. control (). #Statistical significant value of in the control group, in the DM PNP- group, and compared to their own baseline measurements. (b) Cutaneous blood cell flux measurements after the application of pressure alone. Statistical significant value of at this time point of the DM PNP+ group or the control group compared with their own baseline measurement. No statistically significant differences were measured between the groups.
