Nalam Dia Foot Care
India has the dubious distinction of being the world leader in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus. In diabetics, amputation is a dreaded complication. Today in the world, every 30 seconds, an amputation is being performed and of these amputations 85% are preventable.
So in order to detect the risk of foot ulcers at the earliest, we have a state-of-art Diabetic Foot Care Centre.
The Nalam Dia-foot Care Center is equipped with
Vascular Doppler to detect blood flow in upper limbs and lower limbs
Blood flow reduction is one of major reasons for diabetic ischemic ulcers as well as for delay in healing of wounds. So vascular doppler identifies patients at risk, so that the necessity for vascular procedures to help in wound healing can be decided.
Biothesiometer to identify loss of vibration sense in limbs
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is one another important precursor of diabetic foot ulcers. Patients who are affected with the peripheral neuropathy are immune to all sensations, which means they cannot feel hot/cold, touch, pain in their affected limbs leading to repeated trauma and thereby ulcers. Vibration sense is the first sense to be affected in diabetic neuropathy and Biothesiometer, helps in identifying the loss of this sensation and thereby identifies at risk foot at the earliest.
Ansiscope to detect Autonomic Neuropathy
Autonomic neuropathy is an important precursor of rhythm abnormalities in heart, gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, constipation as well as heel fissures and loss of sweat in foot. Ansiscope identifies the autonomic neuropathy at it's earliest phase and can help in prevention of these complications.
Harris mat for foot pressure study
Mechanical trauma and thereby ulcer occurs due to uneven weight distribution in structurally altered feet. The undue pressure points can be identified by the Harris mat and thereby foot wear can be customized to offload pressure from pressure points in feet.
Monofilaments to detect loss of touch sensation in foot at the earliest.
Touch sense is another sense crucial for prevention of diabetic foot ulcers. Monofilaments help in assessing the presence of touch sensation in different parts of the feet, so that the level of diabetic peripheral neuropathy can be assessed and necessary precautions can be initiated.
