Abstract

Diabetic foot complication is one of the leading cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations. Due to diabetic complications such as neuropathy, diabetic patients do not feel any pain in their feet. Due to this they are often unaware of any ulcer or wound formed on their feet. This along with impaired healing of the wounds often escalates into lower extremity amputation affecting patient's socio-economic well-being. By monitoring different parameters of the foot and using it for predicting possible occurrence of ulcer we aim to avoid occurrence of ulcers. We developed a new hardware with accompanying software while evaluating the design to ensure it helps in taking early preventive measures for the feet and avoid the occurrence of ulcer and further complications.
