A Cost-Effective Photonics-based Device for Early Prediction, Monitoring and Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Project description

Non-invasive method to check for diabetic foot ulcers

Approximately 15 % of patients with diabetes develop an open sore or wound that is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. Of those who develop a foot ulcer, 6 % will be hospitalised. Amputation is the most feared consequence of a foot ulcer. To reverse this trend and to help prevent diabetic foot ulcers, the EU-funded PHOOTONICS project will develop a non-invasive, reliable and cost-effective photonics driven device. At home, this non-invasive device will be used to monitor foot temperature for the prevention and early detection of diabetic foot ulcers. The aim is to replace current approaches like skin lesion biopsy, which are invasive and require a visit to the doctor.
