Orthotic solution

for pressure redistribution in Diabetic foot disease

The Diabetic foot disease is a wide spectrum of pathologies with varying levels of severity. Some of which pose a direct threat of premature death. Despite of the large body of knowledge acquired in the last two decades-which describes in much detail the various processes taking part in the disease-it had little impact on the staggering numbers of complications or fatality and no tangible effect on the soaring costs incurred.

This dynamic nature doesn’t seem to be addressed adequately in current therapeutic approaches and likewise the bio-mechanical forces exerted on the feet with normal gait.

This projects aims to develop a solution that would serve as a prophylactic and therapeutic modality for patients with diabetic foot disease. The solution would utilize pressure relieving principles supported by great evidence in literature and an integrated advanced monitoring technologies to reduce re-designing iteration.
