Special Footwear For Diabetics To Be Designed

The rate of diabetic foot amputations is high in India, which has around 30 million diabetics. The number of these surgeries can be considerably reduced with proper foot care. //

An ordinary running shoe is sufficient for most diabetic patients, but special footwear is required for patients who suffer foot deformities.

The Diabetes Research Centre at the MV Hospital has tied up with the Harvard Medical School, Boston, U.S for a research to design footwear for diabetic patients who face risk of amputation.

The two institutions have shared information on diabetic foot complications, its treatment and prevention, which has benefited around 900 medics and paramedics since 2003.

Two workshops have already been held and the third is under way.

"But even as we explore newer footwear technologies it is important not to lose focus of the larger obligation of prevention through education among physicians and patients," said David Campbell, vascular surgeon and associate clinical professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School.

Dr.Campbell has played a vital role in sensitizing the doctors and patients in the U.S. on management of diabetes and its complications, heads the faculty team for the current workshop.

Dr.Campbell was instrumental in finding the Harvard Vietnam Medical Education Program in Ho Chi Minh city and it is worth noting that diabetes-related amputation rates have dropped since the programme began in 2000.

Vijay Viswanathan ,the joint director of MV Hospital believes that awareness and affordability have to be increased among diabetes patients and this would determine the demand and use of protective footwear.

The Indo-U.S workshops on diabetic foot care also aim to encourage diabetologists to establish diabetic foot care clinics.
