All-in-one Complete Diabetic Foot Lab - Item Code: DIABETIK MINILAB
All-in-One Complete Diabetic Foot Lab model DIABETIK MINILAB is a complete system that can measure and test Ankle Brachial Index (ABI), Toe Brachial Index (TBI), Doppler Velocity Waveform, Biothesiometry, Monofilament 10gm, Podiascan and Foot temperature. A master report captures the patient physical and medical history along with the measured data in addition to the 5 pages of patient reports. The device supplied with a specially designed trolley. Diabetik Minilab needs a Windows 7/8/10 operated computer with a scanner/printer to work.
Non-Invasive Vascular Doppler Screening: Whenever one suspects Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), the clinician must perform a non-invasive vascular doppler screening using an 8MHz unidirectional doppler for ABI, Photoplethysmogram PPG for the toe pressure and TBI. Use of Doppler method is considered as the GOLD standards in measuring ABI & TBI. Along with ABI & TBI, the multiphasic velocity waveform for all the limbs is captured.
Biothesiometry: Biothesiometry is a useful non-invasive tool for the detection of subclinical neuropathy in children and adolescents. The Biothesiometer is an instrument which measures the threshold of appreciation of vibration sense and the amplitude of the stimulus (measured in volts) is gradually increased until the threshold of vibratory sensation is reached, and the stimulus is appreciated by the patient. Patients with the threshold >25 volts are at a high risk to develop ulcers later.
Semmes‐Weinstein monofilament 10gm test (SWMT): The SWMT is a common screening tool for assessing the sensory function and the loss of protective touch sensation. A 10-gm monofilament test (also referred to the 5.07 monofilament) is the most common in practice.
Plantar Pressure Systems: Understanding foot biomechanics is an important component in the evaluation of diabetic foot. The abnormal plantar pressure distribution plays a key role in the formation of plantar calluses and diabetic foot ulcer. Abnormal value of foot pressure as well as neuropathy could play an important role in the formation of plantar ulcers independently. Employs the Foot Imprinter Harris Mat FM1111 and an advanced image processing software to get the quality plantar pressure report. Useful tool for understanding the arch of the patient with the area of high pressure. An excellent education tool for motivating the patients to go for a better footwear. Along with the plantar pressure few other measurements help the footwear supplier to make a fitting footwear for the diabetic foot patient.
Monitoring Temperature in foot can prevent Ulcers: High temperatures under the foot coupled with reduced or complete loss of sensation can predispose the patient to foot ulceration. The FT4 IR foot thermometer helps to record the temperature reading from multiple locations for calculating the risk due to altered temperature in the foot. Patients with diabetic neuropathy who monitor foot skin temperature daily can reduce the risk of ulceration more than 4 fold according to Lawrence A, Lavery, D.P.M and colleagues. If the temperature of corresponding sites on the left and right foot differed by >2.2°C (4°F), patients were advised to contact the doctor and to reduce the number of steps taken in the following days until the temperature difference was <2.2°C. Early diagnosis and early treatment are crucial for the healing of diabetic foot lesions and resources for early interventions must therefore be available to take care of a higher number of suspected foot complications.
