If you're worried about suffering foot ulcers or amputation due to sensory loss, we can help.
Peripheral neuropathy leads to a disconnect between the information produced by the pressure on someone's feet and what their brain recognizes is happening.
An inability to recognize the pressure being placed upon the feet can create the conditions for serious problems, particularly for diabetic patients.
Foot ulcers can occur as a result of loss of protective sensation and coordination of muscle groups in the foot. Diabetic foot lesions are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other complication of diabetes.
The results of neuropathy can be catastrophic. Up to 1% of diabetics will lose a limb as a result of peripheral neuropathy.
Take control of your health with a technology system that's incredibly simple to use.
Comfortable sensor-embedded shoe inserts capture pressure data from your feet while you go about your normal day.
The pressure data is then wirelessly transmitted from the shoe inserts to a smartwatch.
Your smartwatch alerts you when dangerous time and pressure levels are detected, so you can modify behavior and avoid damage.
You can track your progress with an Orpyx Connect account. Our digital charts and data tracking help you avoid medical complications.
Patients and physicians have great things to say about the freedom SurroSense Rx provides.
"I have had a number of problems with my feet over the last few years. At the ripe age of 88 I am now experiencing random swelling of both feet in addition to poor circulation (numbness and tingling). In the fall of 2014, I was fitted with a set of the Orpyx Inserts to monitor pressure in localized areas of my feet. For the first month or so, I was being alerted approximately once per hour. The watch would vibrate, it would startle me and I would change the position of my feet, wiggle my toes and feel the circulation improve. Over time, I started to naturally move my toes and feet more regularly and noticed that I was not being alerted as often. Wearing the inserts has conditioned me to wiggle my toes and change position of my feet more frequently than I had before. I've also noticed less pain and swelling in my feet which I believe can be attributed to improving my circulation through wearing my shoes fitted with the Orpyx system."
"Throughout my time with the SurroSense foot insole, I found it to be a well working product that required little upkeep – just the charging of the watch and shoe pods. The alerts were a cool way to help identify when I needed to change up my stance and the pressure on my foot,” states Darryl. "The most helpful thing I have gained from this product is more awareness to the pressure I am putting on my foot and have now got a better internal gauge of when I need to shift positions."
"I am thrilled at the prospect of using the SurroSense Rx in my patients. The idea that this device could, in essence, give back one of the missing senses in diabetics is truly amazing. I can obviously see how this would prevent wounds and amputations but the idea that this technology could be used in other areas such as prosthetics and even balance proprioception is exciting."
The SurroSense Rx system is comprised of pressure-sensing inserts worn inside of your shoes. When dangerous time and pressure thresholds are detected, you’re notified via smartwatch. The system also tracks and stores data to give you ongoing insight into what’s happening underfoot. Your purchase includes:
The inserts fit inside of your shoe underneath your existing insole or custom orthotic. For that reason, many users find that they need a smaller size as compared with their regular shoe size. If you normally wear a half size (e.g. Men's Size 11.5), you should round down and purchase the smaller size.
The SurroSense Rx system is currently available for online orders in North America. For international orders, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
