The patent pending (US Publication #20120109013 and PCT WO/2012/055029) SurroSense Rx™ system is a high-tech, pressure-sensing shoe insert and smartwatch system that tells the user when potential damage could be occurring on the feet. The product is designed to mitigate diabetic foot complications, such as ulceration, infection and amputation. One of the main problems with diabetic peripheral neuropathy is that, when someone is affected with it, he or she is unaware when pressure thresholds are being abused. The result is tissue damage, leading to ulceration, and often, amputation.
The SurroSense Rx™ system collects pressure data from the foot and wirelessly sends that information to the user via smartwatch. The display alerts the user when potential damage is being done so that behavior can be changed and these devastating complications can be avoided. The product will be released through a controlled launch with select clinics in the US.
