Abstract

Global incidence of diabetes is rising. If notproperly managed and treated, diabetes can lead to seriouscomplications, notably amputations, due to Diabetic FootDisease (DFD). Amputations from DFD can be reduced throughmonitoring/analysis. This study evaluates a number of sensingelements to enable a novel monitoring/analysis platform for thepurposes of assessment of DFD.
