Your Total Foot Care Specialist now offers state of the art insoles with remote monitoring technology to prevent diabetic foot ulcers and neuropathy-related ulcers.
This new technology is customized to fit each individual patient’s feet and shoes. These revolutionary insoles capture foot pressure, temperature and activity throughout the day to provide real-time information. Audiovisual alerts identify areas of high-pressure that are prone to tissue breakdown, which left untreated can lead to an infection, ulcer, and even foot amputation.
The insoles provide a steady stream of data about your foot health and is continuously monitored to identify treatment decisions proactively to keep your feet healthy and reducing the chance of foot ulcers.
When worn consistently, patients saw an 86% reduction in diabetic foot ulcers.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer Statistics
In a recently published randomized controlled trial, when compared to current standards of care, our technology, the Orpyx SI showed a reduction in diabetic foot ulcer recurrence in 86% of people with a history of previous diabetic foot ulcers. Neuropathy occurs in 70% of people with diabetes and can cause a lack of sensation leading to injuries going undetected and a higher prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers. In addition, neuropathy damages blood vessels resulting in compromised blood flow and healing that can eventually lead to the need for amputation of the foot or leg. It is the number one cause of lower-extremity amputations when not treated properly.
Our podiatrists not only treat a wide range of foot conditions, but also help patients with diabetes manage and maintain foot health with treatment plans that reduce the risk of injury and infection. We are an approved Medicare provider for diabetic shoes that are specifically designed for diabetic patients.
