Foot Care Solution for Diabetic Patients:
Wound Care Treatment: Diabetic wound treatment is an essential part of managing diabetes, as people with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing foot ulcers that can lead to serious complications. Proper wound care includes cleaning the wound, using antibiotics if necessary, and protecting the area from further injury.
Neuropathy Screening: Peripheral Neuropathy screening for diabetic patients. Patients are screened for touch, temperature and pain sensation.
Foot Pressure Mapping: State-of-the-art technology for static and dynamic pressure mapping of the foot using highly sensitive in-built pressure sensors.
3D Foot Scan: Foot scanning provides an accurate diagnosis of structural foot deformities like flat foot, high arch foot, hallux valgus, and, others. The 3D foot scan generated can be used to design corrective custom insoles for each patient.
Peripheral Vascular Assessment: It evaluates the occurrence of peripheral vascular disease using the ankle-brachial index in diabetic patients.
Diabetic Insoles: Diabetic Insoles are specially designed shoe inserts that help to distribute pressure evenly across the foot and reduce the risk of developing foot ulcers. They can also provide extra cushioning and support, which can be helpful for people with diabetes who have foot pain or discomfort.
Diabetic Ortho-Slippers: Diabetic Ortho-Slippers are designed to provide extra support and cushioning to the feet, reducing pressure and minimizing the risk of developing foot ulcers. They are also designed with features such as adjustable straps, wide toe boxes, and non-slip soles to accommodate various foot shapes and provide stability when walking.
