AI Enabled Managemement of Patients at Risk of Diabetic Foot Ulcer

Project description

Remote scan steps in to prevent diabetic foot ulcers

There are about 60 million people with diabetes in the European region. Diabetic foot ulcer is one of the most serious complications of diabetes and many patients are required to undergo lower limb amputations. The related costs of treatment and rehabilitation are steep, creating a big burden on healthcare systems. The EU-funded DELTA project will develop a home-based device that looks like a typical bathroom scale to predict and prevent diabetic foot ulcers. This remote scanner combines special advanced algorithms, sensors, computer vision and uses machine learning. By preventing ulcers, the technology can prevent hundreds of thousands of amputations, improving lives and saving healthcare systems millions of euros each year.
