What are Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU)?

What's a DFU?

image1

A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15% of patients with diabetes. Of those who develop a foot ulcer, 6 percent will be hospitalized due to infection or other ulcer-related complication.

Diabetes a Chronic Condition

image2

Over 30 million Americans have Diabetes and 1 out of 5 will develop a DFU.  The US spends a total of $176 billion on direct costs for diabetes care; as much as one third of this expenditure is lower extremity related.

Diabetic Complications & Challenges

image3

1)  Peripheral Neuropathies- lack sensation in feet

2)  Poor flexibility or pain causing inability to reach between toes to properly dry 

3)  Lack access to healthcare

4)  30-45 day wait time for physical exam

Antiquated Foot Care Education

Doctors ask patients to dry well and  hover their feet over a mirror placed on the floor for inspection.  This is dangerous when combining vision and balance problems diabetics have.  

Ongoing Monitoring

image5

Monitoring after an initial foot ulcer treatment is crucial in the healing process.  Most patients wait 30 or more days without seeing their provider.  Many times providers can't get them in sooner.

Avoid Complications

If left untreated, foot ulcers can progressively lead to bone/tissue infection, systemic infections amputation and death.

DFU Economic Impact & the DFU Market

Global Market
