I work as a Welfare Rights Officer for North Lanarkshire Council and would appreciate advice/information concerning how mobile someone needs to be for the formation of callouses on the feet. Examining Doctor's are stating that "callus present on soles of feet", this is then used as a justification for stating that the person is more mobile than they claim, especially in cases where people have Fybromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and are claiming the Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance.
I beleive the inference is that if their feet are calloused then they are doing a lot of walking and would appreciate some guidance on this. Thanks.
