Diabetic patients tend to have nerve dysfunction, and are at greater risk for developing a foot ulceration. Insole X can compensate for sensory loss with a visualized map of foot pressure distribution and detailed movement data, the patients will be able to monitor their own health state during rehabilitation.

Neuropathy and blood vessel disease associated with diabetes can cause a variety of diabetic foot conditions, including ulcerations and infections. When a diabetic patient loses sensation in the feet, sores or injuries may go unnoticed until more serious problems develop.

Diabetic foot conditions are caused by a combination of neuropathy and poor circulation. Daily observation and preventative foot care are critical for preventing foot-related injuries. InsoleX can help diabetics find out the abnormal pressure under feet and avoid unnecessary injuries like cuts or blisters, thus enhance better foot care.

sennopro-smart insole- solving diabetic foot ulcer

Diabetic foot is the problem that sennopro , a pair of smart insole which can collecting plantar pressure and gait data,want to solve. They believe that the smart insole-Open API can be used by many people want to help patients with diabetic foot.They can develop their own application using the data captured by the smart insole.

SMART DIABETIC SOCKS: Embedded Device for Diabetic Foot Prevention

Diabetic Footis the consequence of the long-term chronic complications of diabetes affecting the lower limbs, namely peripheral neuropathy and angiopathy. When both complications are associated to an external trivial trauma, they determine the progression of the pathology from a non-ulcerated condition of a foot at risk, to an acute syndrome characterized by the classic diabetic foot ulcer, followed by a chronic condition in the post-ulcerative phase, which can lead to amputation [1]. If the same external trauma occurred in a person with intact somatosensory function, the person would experience pain and avoid the offending pressures. However, in a person with loss of protective somato-sensation (diabetic neuropathy), there is no warning of excessive pressures or tissue damage and persistent localized pressures could lead to skin breakdown or ulceration. It has been estimated that a limb is lost every 30 seconds in the world because of diabetes. In addition to causing pain and morbidity, foot lesions in diabetic patients have substantial economic consequences, with huge direct and indirect costs [2-3]. As concerns prevention, previous studies have suggested that an efficient Care could reduce foot ulcer and amputation [4]. This monitoring strategy is largely based on renewed vigilance of the diabetic patient which mainly consists in making a daily inspection of his feet. Unfortunately, studies have shown that patient vigilance decreases over time. Complications which appear after some time are directly correlated with the increasing lack of vigilance. Unfortunately in the case of diabetic patients, it is precisely when the first foot ulcers appear that serious complications begin. This is mainly due to recurrent disease in the diabetic angiopathy, which severely limits the powers of healing. It becomes therefore essential to propose new technologies and services dedicated to the monitoring and assistance of the diabetic patient to help maintain alertness and by extension its autonomy in society. The external trauma that causes tissue breakdown could be intrinsic, such as repetitive stresses from high pressure and/or callus, or extrinsic such as from ill-fitting footwear rubbing on the skin or an object inside the shoe. It hence appears very suitable to be able (1) to monitor the external pressure applied all around the foot and (2) if possible, to estimate the corresponding internal stresses and strains. Dr Paul Brand (1914–2003) was the pioneer advising the measurement of the pressures between foot and shoe, trying to observe the causes and not the consequences of foot high pressures .

Diabetes Foot Ulcers

  • If you have reduced sensation to your feet (see above). The risk of this occurring increases the longer you have diabetes and the older you are. Also, if your diabetes is poorly controlled. This is one of the reasons why it is very important to keep your blood sugar level as near normal as possible.
  • If you have narrowed blood vessels (arteries) – see above. The risk of this occurring increases the longer you have diabetes, the older you become and also if you are male. Also, if you have any other risk factors for developing furring of the arteries. For example, if you smoke, do little physical activity, have a high cholesterol level, high blood pressure or are overweight.
  • If you have had a foot ulcer in the past.
  • If you have other complications of diabetes, such as kidney or eye problems.
  • If your feet are more prone to minor cuts, grazes, corns or calluses which can occur:
    • If you have foot problems such as bunions which put pressure on points on the feet.
    • If your shoes do not fit properly, which can put pressure on your feet.
    • If you have leg problems which affect the way that you walk, or prevent you from bending to care for your feet.
