Foot Scanner / Foot Scanner for diabetes

Foot Scanner
Foot Scanner

If we discover wounds early, nearly 63% of diabetes’ amputations can be avoided. But even so, diabetes would feel nothing due to neural lesions. Wounds cannot be seen if they are too small, not to mention for elder or patients with poor eyesight. Infection spreads too quick resulting amputations.
“Foot Scanner” is a device that uses microscope dialysis and 3D image constructing to accurately find wounds on our foot. By using the shortest time to find out unusual body parts, we can give the correct treatment right away.
The results would be shown on the screen and be saved automatically, making it easy to show doctors.
