Abstract:Diabetic foot complication is one of the leading cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations. Due to diabetic complications such as neuropathy, diabetic patients do not feel any pain in their feet. Due to this they are often unaware of any ulcer or wound formed on their feet. This along with impaired healing of the wounds often escalates into lower extremity amputation affecting patient’s socio-economic well-being. This graduation assignment aims to avoid occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers by monitoring different parameters of the foot and using it for predicting possible occurrence of ulcer. Developing and then evaluating hardware and software for this purpose comes under the scope of this master assignment. Designing such a system will help in taking early preventive measures for the feet to avoid occurrence of ulcer thereby avoiding further complications.
