Podium offers the capability to assess foot temperature as part of patient care bring the potential health benefits as well as providing podiatrists with a distinctive offering as health care practitioners.
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):
annual NHS expenditure on diabetic foot ulcers and amputation
of hospital admissions with at least 1 overnight stay were for diabetic foot problems
of people who have major amputation die within 2 years, average life expectancy is 5 years.
people worldwide are living with diabetes which is expected to rise to 642 million people by 2040
people with diabetes develop macrovascular complications and neuropathy which leads to DFUs
number 1 cause of limb amputation
people don't even know they are living with diabetes
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.
