The newly developed graphene sensing system can recognize early indications of foot ulcers in diabetic patients.
FREMONT, CA: Diabetes can influence anybody from any social status, and the number of individuals influenced increases exponentially nowadays. It is evaluated that more than 422 million individuals worldwide have been determined to have diabetes. It is a severe condition bringing about expanded glucose levels because of the ill-advised use of insulin, which catalyzes the assimilation of sugar (glucose) by cells for energy. Individuals with diabetes are exceptionally prone to develop foot ulcers. In some genuine cases, extreme foot contaminations brought about by diabetes require some part of the toe, foot, or lower leg to be removed. To analyze the beginning of diabetes at an early stage, a cutting edge innovation has been developed.
A graphene sensing system has been designed to indicate early indications of foot ulcers, empowering diabetic patients to access preventive health care. The smart insole utilizing core graphene technology can be embedded in footwear or dress shoe to screen the foot state of the diabetes patient latently. The information can be gathered from the patient and sent to a companion application that can be accessed by the user and can be shared with the physician to decide whether intervention or treatment is required. Smart insoles work such that they sense the skin's temperature, weight, and other foot care-related information that can indirectly indicate the beginning of disease while cautioning the patient and the healthcare provider.
This system reduces the complexity associated with the monitoring procedure so that the patient can effectively self-screen while limiting the recurrence of doctor visits. This savvy insole can conceivably lessen medicinal services costs for diabetic foot removals. Further, the graphene sensors are tested in comfortable and wearable traffic for other advanced health applications like disease management, athletic performance, and many more. When utilized in smart clothing, graphene innovation can be used for preventive health. This technology will bring consistent preventative care for patients and spare billions of dollars in healthcare costs.
