The aim of this review is to investigate the current literature concerning venous leg ulceration — specifically the place of venous anatomy and blood pressure in the development and treatment of venous ulceration — and the measurement of human movement using different devices and equipment. The combination of these two literature reviews will enable us to examine the relationship between human lower limb activity and the development and healing of venous ulceration, and identify any gaps in the literature.
