The simple task of walking may be detrimental to the health of diabetic patients by exacerbating damage from foot ulcers caused by poor blood circulation (peripheral neuropathy). Orpyx’s SurroSense Rx aims to help patients better manage and care for these foot ulcers. The device includes a pressure-sensing insole that can be slipped inside any shoe and a transmitter to relay information to a watch display. The company is developing a smartphone app to link the device as well.
