Podimetrics, a biotech company created during an MIT “hackathon” has unveiled its latest diabetes monitoring device. The device, the Podimetrics Remote Temperature Monitoring System, is a mat designed to indicate when foot ulcers may be forming. Foot ulcers in patients with diabetes may lead to amputation and are a common side effect of diabetes-caused nerve damage. The American Diabetes Association recommends that patients undergo a comprehensive foot evaluation each year to combat ulcers. The Podimetrics system enables patients and doctors to catch these symptoms remotely before ulcers form. Read the full press release here.
