DFU Detection and Prevention
Studies have shown that 75% of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are preventable with early detection, yet with over 35 million DFUs each year, every second of every day, someone on the planet is afflicted. DFUs cost the global healthcare systems over $150Bn in annual treatment costs.
Studies also show that amputations and infection are the greatest fears in patients with diabetes related foot complications. Thermidas’ goal is early detection of preventable DFUs enabling healthcare systems to minimize their impact.
The International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF), in their newly published 2023 guidelines, now recommends daily foot temperature monitoring for high-risk patients.
