  • Diabetic Foot Treatment

    Diabetes is a serious chronic disease that needs attention. Approximately 15% of all people with diabetes will be affected by a foot ulcer during their lifetime. Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) often co-exist with vascular insufficiency and are the major cause of gangrene and amputation in people with diabetes. Risk of developing diabetic foot ulcers is greatly increased by reduced sensation and blood perfusion.

  • Types of Diabetic Foot

    There are two major types of Diabetic foot

    • The Neuropathic Foot where neuropathy dominates.
    • The Neuroischemic Foot, where occlusive vascular disease is the main factor, although neuropathy is present.

    The more precise the method of wound area measurement, more conclusive the treatment plan.

    WoundZoom’s Wound Management System is a customizable solution including hardware and software. Provides facilities with secure documentation tools that capture, measure, analyze, and connect wound care data with patient records and analyses the wound precisely.

    TCPO2 – TCOM
    Transcutaneous oximetry, tcpO2 or TCOM, is a local, non-invasive measurement tool reflecting the amount of O2 that has diffused from the capillaries, through the epidermis. TcpO2 provides instant, continuous information about the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to the tissue. It helps to determine the level of hypoxia in patients at wound site

    NEUROLITE-IR light therapy
    Infrared rays clean up dead cells: boosted blood circulation helps with cleaning up dead or damaged cells, including dead bacteria.

    CO2 Surgical Laser
    Excellent results in diabetic wound and surgical debridement reduces surgical trauma with minimum discomfort and excellent haemostasis.

    Natrox Oxygen Therapy
    Oxygen is critical to many of the processes required in wound healing. NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy allows you to prescribe topical oxygen in a very simple, safe and extremely convenient way directly to the wound bed.

    NPWT
    Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a therapeutic technique using a vacuum dressing to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds and enhance healing of second- and third-degree burns.

    Advanced wound dressings
    Hydrocolloids, hydro gels, foam, alginate, compression dressings, antimicrobial, epigraft, contact layers and many others.

  • Diabetic Footwear

    Diabetes can cause damage to the nerves and vessels in the feet leading to a condition called neuropathy. A patient suffering from neuropathy loses the feeling in his/her feet, and often does not realize immediately when the foot is injured. This increases the overall risk of aggravating foot problems.

    People with diabetes can suffer from bunions, corns, fungal infections, hammertoe and gangrene.

    Due to poor circulation to the area, any foot problem will take longer to heal and may instead turn into a dangerous infection that can progress and lead to amputations if not corrected in the early stages. Wearing specially designed shoes or adding orthotics can help reduce risk and promote healthy blood circulation in your feet. Orthotics are footpads or thicker, more shock-absorbent inserts placed inside your shoes to take pressure off of your feet and provide added comfort.
