What does "nonfluctuant" mean in reference to ischemic foot?

I would think it means "without palapable pulses" due to ischemic foot ulcers, which means impaired circulation altogether.
nonfluctuant means firm and not movable...in terms of an ischemic foot it can mean "dry" on non-infected gangrene
