How did foreign Christian anti-footbinding activists treat the distinctive forms of human embodiment they encountered in China? What were their assumptions? How should we understand the transition from religious to secular imaginings of the body and its pains? Here I discuss late nineteenth and early twentieth century religion and medicalized hygiene through the voices of two English people who campaigned against and wrote extensively about footbinding.

BACKGROUND: Limited joint mobility in diabetic patients has been identified as a risk factor in the development of plantar ulcers. We examined dorsal mobility and passive first ray stiffness in patients with diabetes and investigated the relationship between first ray mobility and ankle joint dorsiflexion. METHODS: Forty individuals were studied: 20 with diabetes (mean estimated duration of 16 +/- 10 years) and 20 matched controls. Dorsal first ray mobility was measured using a mechanical device.
