Research project: Load monitoring and Intervention System (LOMIS) to prevent diabetic foot ulceration

Currently Active: 
Yes
Project type: 
Grant

Awarded as a i4i Product Development Award NIHR201315 (Ref. RCP009546). 2021-2023 Bader Co-applicant with Jiang (PI, Southampton), Zaheedi (Blatchford) and partners in Universities of Salford and Bangor and Solent NHS Trust. Start date Jan 2021, Total £965k (University of Southampton contribution £609k). This three year project is designed to develop an instrumented insole sensing system that can be clinically used for diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) prevention. The project will be based on an innovative thin flexible sensing solution that could be integrated into insoles. The initial prototype will be evaluated in healthy participants followed by pilot clinical tests involving diabetic cohorts, who present with different risk levels. The outputs of the experimental project will be analysed to develop an algorithm underpinning a DFU warning strategy with a friendly interface for use by clinicians.
