Career Summary

Biography

Dr Sean Lanting is a Lecturer and clinical supervisor in the Discipline of Podiatry, School of Health Sciences in the Faculty of Health and Medicine. Sean completed a Bachelor of Podiatry in 2011 with Bachelor of Health Science (Honours - class 1) in 2012 at UoN. Sean also completed his PhD at UoN in 2017 titled, 'Vascular risk profiling and exercise therapy for diabetic foot complications'. 

While working for several years clinically Sean has also been an active member of the UoN Podiatry Department. Sean has been involved in teaching in several courses including those related to lower-limb anatomy, pharmacology, clinical practice, biomechanics, sports injuries and rehabilitation, as well as diabetes management. More recently, Sean has coordinated podiatry program courses: Advanced foot anatomy and biomechanics; Diabetes and wound management, Introduction to podiatry clinical skills, and musculoskeletal and sports podiatry. 

Sean has a keen interest for investigating microvascular disease and how that presents in various populations as well as possible therapies. Sean is also interested in the effects of exercise therapies on health measures in chronic disease. In addition, Sean has established cross-institutional partners at University of Sydney and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney.

© 2020 The Author(s). Background: The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is widely used for determining the presence and severity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and current guidelines suggest it should be used to monitor possible progression in affected individuals. It is therefore important that the technique demonstrates adequate reliability for repeated measurements. Existing studies suggest that the ABI is reliable in the general population however, there is a lack of evidence for the reliability of the ABI in people with diabetes. The aim of this study was to investigate the intra-tester reliability of the ABI in people with and without diabetes. Methods: Eighty-five participants (40 with and 45 without diabetes) underwent ankle and brachial systolic blood pressure measurements by a single clinician during two testing sessions. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC), their 95% limits of agreement, standard error of measurement and minimal detectable change were determined. Results: Intra-tester reliability of the ABI was found to be good (ICC: 0.80), however sub-group analysis of participants with and without diabetes found that ABI was slightly less reliable in people with diabetes (ICC: 0.78) than in those without (ICC: 0.82). The relatively large limits of agreement (- 0.16 to 0.16), standard error of measurement (0.03 overall, 0.04 for the diabetes group), and minimal detectable change (0.08 overall, 0.11 for the diabetes group) suggest that a large change in ABI is required for it to demonstrate a true change rather than the result of measurement variability. The minimal detectable change for the ABI was 0.08 overall, and 0.11 for the diabetes group. Conclusions: The ABI demonstrated good reliability in all groups analysed. However, the wide limits of agreement and considerable standard error of measurement obtained support the use of multiple methods of vascular assessment for ongoing monitoring of lower limb vascular status.
