Seeing Beyond What the Eye Can See
We are a point of care diagnostic device to non-invasively detect Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy.
Indians have Diabetes
This number will increase to 134.3 M by 2045
$31B is spent on lower extremity complications of diabetes
50% of patients with diabetes suffer from Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
100,000 leg amputations/ year due to diabetes-related problems
Amputations cost up to $90K
Currently, there are no affordable devices in India for Early Detection and ease of use for patients with Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
HOW IT WORKS
Early diagnosis and monitoring the prognosis of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Pressure and Gait Analysis for choosing the right footwear
Therapeutic Insole which helps in mechanical offloading, promoting ulcer healing
We are a group of dedicated, vibrant, and empathetic innovators who met at OHSU Invent-a-thon. After talking to multiple clinicians and patients at a Hackathon in 2018 we connected with the burden and loss of quality of life of DPN patients. Undergoing Amputations are painful not only on the patient but on the entire family. It emotionally distresses them and sometimes drives them to suicide. We wondered how to solve this grave issue with a simple, cost-effective yet quality solution and here we are with our first product DiaCare, making a groundbreaking path to solve India’s Healthcare issues. We started off with a very crude concept in 2018 with a group of young medical students and moved to test our product feasibility on over 500 patients, changing our designs and growing!
We want to create a holistic technology enabled system for better foot care, reducing cost of burden on patients and health providers. We strive to empower Public Health Centers with the technology they deserve to serve rural population because everybody deserves access to equal quality and affordable healthcare. We want to create an India free of Diabetic Foot Complications.
DiaCare is a diagnostic tool for tracking the onset and prognosis of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. Our system requires a mobile based App connected via Bluetooth to our custom-made footwear. The footwear analysis Temperature and Gait in locations prescribed for testing by clinicians. You need to wear the sock twice a month and this analysis happens at random times. On perceiving this stimulus, the patient needs to deactivate it using our App. A thorough report is generated & can be used by the doctor to diagnose the onset of DPN, assess its progression, and response to treatment. The report will automatically be sent to the doctor when the threshold of a number of misses is crossed so that the treatment regimen can be changed. The report will have detailed analysis and trends in comparing the previous history of the patient and prognosis of the disease. DiaCare is a non-invasive, AI-powered device aimed at improving diabetic self-care. The system has been designed to consider the daily routine of the patient and is absolutely user-friendly.
We are coming with cool updates. Stay Tuned!
