Use of a Remote Temperature Monitoring Mat for the Early Identification of Foot Ulcers.

Summary of "Use of a Remote Temperature Monitoring Mat for the Early Identification of Foot Ulcers."

Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are responsible for considerable morbidity, mortality, and cost. Remote temperature monitoring (RTM) is an evidenced-based and recommended component of standard foot care for at-risk patients. Although previous research has demonstrated the value of RTM for foot ulcer prevention, its benefits related to the early identification of diabetic foot complications may be underappreciated.
