About Podium

Empowering patients in their personal care.

Born out of scientific research and a desire to help patients take charge of their day-to-day foot care, Podium works to bring together patients, families and healthcare professionals in a single holistic caring approach.

Diabetes, the facts and statistics

Diabetic foot ulceration (DFU) is a serious and frequent consequence of diabetes. If detected too late, it can lead to infections, ulcers and eventually amputations. Sobering statistics about DFU are (2010/11 UK figures):

£650,000,000

annual NHS expenditure on diabetic foot ulcers and amputation

8.8%

of hospital admissions with at least 1 overnight stay were for diabetic foot problems

1/2

of people who have major amputation die within 2 years, average life expectancy is 5 years.

415,000,000

people worldwide are living with diabetes which is expected to rise to 642 million people by 2040

1/10

people with diabetes develop macrovascular complications and neuropathy which leads to DFUs

#1

number 1 cause of limb amputation

1/4

people don't even know they are living with diabetes



Exclamimation


Importantly, 80% of DFUs are preventable by daily screening for the early warning sign of increased temperature of the affected area caused by inflammatory reactions of the foot. This is why we believe the Podium is a vital tool.
