Greater awareness of diabetes related problems and their prevention is of critical importance, especially in India today. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), every 30 seconds a person loses a limb to amputation because of complications resulting from diabetes. To address this grave concern we offer a host of tests at an affordable price under one roof. Based on the reports the doctors recommend the best treatment to ensure that your feet and legs are in safe hands.
The Bio-Thesiometer is an instrument designed to measure simply and accurately the threshold of appreciation of vibration in human subjects. Digital Biothesiometer is a non-invasive tool to detect the occurrence of neuropathy. It is equipped with a turning fork which works electronically and has vibration strength that is slowly increased till a patient can feel the vibratory sensation. This helps to detect the level of loss of sensation in the feet and detects neurological changes with a high degree of accuracy. Our Biothesiometer is digital with the integrated software system.
Foot Pressure Measurement using Pedomed
Pedography is the study of pressure fields that operates between the plantar surface of the foot and a supporting surface. The Plantar Pressure Pedography System in our centre helps in early recognition of the varied pressure patterns in the person suffering with neuropathy. The tool is also known as foot pressure measurement system. It is used for biomechanical analysis of posture or gait. It measures and records foot pressure in static and Dynamic modes. The system helps to detect the walking pattern of the neuropathic forefoot, Charcot foot, and the typical diabetic patient foot pattern. Based on the measurement of our highly advanced Plantar Pressure Pedography, custom made foot wear is made for each individual according to his or her needs.
Vascular deficiency is the result of blocks in the blood vessels that causes non healing ulcers and in very severe and rare instances amputations. Vascular insufficiency among diabetic patients leads to severe complications. Our comprehensive PC based Vascular Doppler Recorder identifies the existence of reduced blood flow to the legs thereby giving an early opportunity for treatment.
Diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DNS) is a common complication of diabetes that affects between 40 and 60 percent of patients. It is a silent killer, which if left untreated can lead to serious problem.
This device is safe, noninvasive, and uses a portable electrocardiogram (ECG) to measure the activity of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) hence the name ANSiscope. It detects the percentage of autonomic dysfunction. The initial reading takes approximately one minute to show on the device and each reading is updated after each subsequent heartbeat. Different stages of diabetic autonomic neuropathy are indicated on the device: healthy, early, late, advanced and most advanced.
The primary goal of Diabetic footwear is to prevent complications, which can include strain, ulcers, calluses, corn or even amputations for patients with diabetes and poor circulation.
Neuropathy can also change the shape of a person’s feet, which limits the range of shoes that can be worn comfortably. We have a range of footwear to be worn always at home that is economical.High end fancy models are also available at reasonable cost.Those who require custom made footwear are given special modules to address individual needs
