Remote temperature monitoring for DFU prevention

Once-daily remote temperature monitoring is a well-established clinical tool that has been studied in three NIH-funded randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and is incorporated into three clinical practice guidelines for preventative foot care.

A Partner in Care Management

Scalable and flexible in design, our team can seamlessly integrate into existing Care or Disease Management Programs to augment cohesive care.

We ensure that patients are engaged and using their SmartMat, as well as receiving the appropriate preventative treatment at the right time.

Ensuring High Quality Population Management

DFU prevention programs strive to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

01Admissions / hospitalizations

1 in every 13 inpatients are primarily admitted because of a foot-related condition 1

02Readmissions

In the 2 years after a wound has healed, as many as 50% of patients will re-ulcerate 2

03Amputations

Diabetes-related foot complications are the leading cause of lower extremity amputations 3

04Patient satisfaction

Patients with diabetic foot disease fear a lower extremity amputation more than death 4

05Emergency department visits
