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. (8)

Doctors Teach Patients

Dry well and hover feet over a mirror placed on floor to self inspect soles.  This is a dangerous practice when combining the vision and balance problems diabetics have.

Long Wait Times Between Doctor Visits

Monitoring after an initial foot ulcer treatment is crucial in the healing process.  Patients wait 30 or more days without seeing their provider.  

Many times providers can't get them in sooner. 30-45 day wait time.
