Comprehensive foot examination and consultation

Comprehensiv-foot-examination

Comprehensive foot examination and consultation helps in identifying warning signs of neuropathy or preventing the injuries which often go unnoticed due to lack of sensation in the feet

Assessment

Evaluation for Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

10gms-Semmes-Weinstein-Monofilament

10gms Semmes Weinstein Monofilament: is used to assess the protective sensation in the feet. Inability to perceive 10gm pressure in the feet is indicative of damage to large nerve fiber resulting in neuropathy


128-Hz-tuning-fork

128 Hz tuning fork: is used to assess vibration sense in the feet; alteration in the perception indicates the early sign of neuropathy.


Hot-and-Cold-Perception

Hot and Cold Perception is a specialized machine that helps in detecting the damage to small nerve fiber which leads to impaired hot and cold perception in the feet. Inability to detcet the thermal perception can make the patient at risk of thermal injuries and ulceration.


Biothesiometer

Biothesiometer is an electrically operated machine which helps in detecting early stage neuropathy by delivering minute but normally detectable vibration in volts/microns to the feet.


Evaluation for Peripheral Vascular Diseases

Ankle-Brachial-Indext

Ankle Brachial Index is a powerful noninvasive tool in predicting peripheral vascular disease (or decreased blood supply toward the feet).


Plantar Pressure measurement (Foot Scan)

Electronic Baropedometer helps in detecting the abnormal pressure beneath the feet. High platar presssure at weight bearing area is a significant risk factor for ulceration, callus formation. This scan also helps in modifying and designing the appropriate footwear.
