Our Columbia, St. Louis, MO, & O’Fallon Diabetic Foot Doctor Can Help With Diabetic Foot Care
Our diabetic foot doctor can help with your diabetic foot care needs. People with diabetes who fail to get regular diabetic care can find that small issues quickly escalate into serious and debilitating conditions. Many people with diabetes lose function in the nerves of the feet, meaning their feet no longer feel normal sensations. Due to this loss of feeling, a simple blister or cut can get infected without the sufferer’s knowledge, potentially leading to more harmful issues.
If you suffer from diabetes, we strongly recommend that you see either our Columbia diabetic foot doctor or diabetic foot doctor at least four times per year. Quarterly appointments allow our foot doctors to familiarize themselves with your individual needs and spot potential issues before they become more serious conditions. Whether you notice changes or not, we strongly urge you to pay us a visit. When it comes to preventing diabetes-related foot problems, prevention really counts! Also, be sure to ask your Columbia or foot doctor about Diabetic Shoes that are available to patients experiencing diabetic foot complications.
Custom Insoles for Diabetic Foot Health
If you’re looking for the most cutting-edge, advanced insoles for diabetic foot care, you’re in the right place! Our podiatrists now offer Orpyx® SI Sensory Insoles in Columbia, and O’Fallon, for your optimal foot health. Here’s how this treatment can help you.
Orpyx® SI Sensory Insoles Help Prevent Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Custom-made for each individual, Orpyx® SI Sensory Insoles include remote patient
monitoring for the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and neuropathy-related
ulcers. These insoles are designed to effortlessly capture plantar pressure, step count,
hours of use, and plantar temperature throughout the day. They will provide you with
real-time audiovisual alerts to enable you to take action to resolve high-pressure areas
that may lead to tissue breakdown.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer Statistics
1 in 4 people suffering from diabetes develops a foot ulcer
40% of those ulcers will recur within the first year after they heal
Once a person develops a DFU, the 5-year mortality rate is almost 50%
Our expert doctors can monitor the data collected by the insoles to identify trends to proactively make treatment decisions to help keep your feet healthy.
How Orpyx SI Sensory Insoles Work
The Orpyx SI sensory insoles come with a pair of custom-made insoles, a digital display
set up and ready to use out of the box, a charger, and an instruction manual.
Orpyx SI sensory insoles provide real-time feedback, enabling you to take immediate action when sustained high pressure is detected. High pressure can cause skin damage on the soles of the feet, which, if left untreated, could lead to foot ulcers, infections, and, in the worst-case scenario, amputations.
In a clinical study, the group that received pressure alerts was 71% less likely to redevelop foot ulcers than the group that didn’t receive any instant feedback. And the sub-group that wore the insoles for 4.5+ hours a day or more were 86% less likely to have ulcer recurrence.
Don’t Let Diabetes Knock You Off Your Feet
Orpyx® can help you manage your foot care. Watch a testimonial from Larry, a patient who uses Orpyx® to track his foot health:
“I discovered I was a diabetic at 35… and I could not believe what I found out about
diabetes [and] your feet. You can’t believe how detrimental pressure is to your feet.
[With Orpyx SI] you can keep track of what’s going on with your feet all the time and
believe you and me, you need it all the time.”
