Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Shorter Treatment Period Using Custom Felt Relief?

2019-08-21 20:05:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The Surgical Outpatient Clinic at Molde Hospital has since 2015 offered specialized treatment for patients with diabetic foot ulcers. This treatment is given by an interdisciplinary diabetic foot ulcer team. The standard treatment for diabetic foot ulcers is relief, a method with good results.

Although the treatment as usual gives good results, the team wants to optimize this treatment. By using custom felt relief for each patient, the treatment period might be reduced considerably. The aim of this study is therefore to investigate whether custom felt relief gives shorter processing time compared to standard relief treatment.
