Effective

PulseFlowDF utilises cutting-edge wearable technology to combine two proven treatment strategies - offloading and intermittent pneumatic compression [21] - to optimise wound healing in the diabetic foot.

Innovative

This innovative Class II medical device features a biomechanically active but unobtrusive design and state-of-the-art construction materials to simultaneously increase blood flow, offload the wound and protect the foot from further injury [25]. Built-in monitoring software ensures accurate treatment data capture and optimal patient engagement with treatment.

Practical

After treatment the device mechanism is removed and the shoes retained by the patient to minimise the risk of repeat tissue breakdown and continue promotion of a healthy in-shoe environment.

Patient Information

Every 20 Seconds Someone Has Part Of Their Leg Amputated Due To Diabetes

Diabetes affects about 415 million people globally [14]

Patients with diabetes have a lifetime risk of developing foot ulcers up to 25% [26]

Up to 76% of diabetic neuropathic ulcers remain unhealed at 12 weeks, and 69% at 20 weeks [20]

Diabetes is associated with 25-90% of all amputations [20]

Up to 68% of patients undergoing diabetes related amputations die inside 5 years [4]

Every year, more than a 1m lose at least part of a leg due to diabetes complications. That’s 1 patient every 20 seconds [14]

Treatment Options For Diabetic Foot Ulcers

The treatment pathway for diabetic foot ulcers varies widely between patients but professional guidelines[11],[12] include:

Debriding the wound back to healthy tissue margins

Applying sterile dressings

Improving blood flow to the wound site

Offloading pressure at the wound site and at risk areas of high vertical or shear stress

Antibiotic therapy to treat infection present or to maintain the ulcer free of infection
