Foot+Saver as Preventative Tool for Diabetes Patients

“Finally, there is a solution to the early detection of foot problems
for diabetics

FOOTSAVER FOOT TEST
Tests conducted by the Veterans Administration Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio validated the FOOT+SAVER diabetic examination mirror as an exceptional tool for early detection of foot complications frequently resulting from diabetes. The test, conducted by three examiners, concluded that every subject tested convincingly located the test pattern which simulated color changes, spots, other marks and ulcers on the feet.

Foot complications resulting from the loss of sensitivity caused by diabetes accounts for more than 86,000 amputations annually. Complications are most commonly caused by failure to perform daily foot examinations. With daily examinations of the bottom of their feet, diabetics can detect signs of foot lesions, skin color changes, spots, sores or even ulcers.


Every subject tested found every test mark on the foot without error, said Dr. Jeffery Robbins, DPM, Director, Veterans Hospital Administration Headquarters, Podiatry Services. Dr. Robbins further stated confidently; Finally there is a solution to the early detection of foot problems for diabetics. If used the FOOT+SAVER will reduce serious foot complications and amputations because of early detection.”

The Veterans Administration Hospital, along with other agencies, including the U.S. Preventative task force, has a goal to reduce amputations by 40% by stressing ulcer prevention. This test by Dr. Robbins was conducted as part of their campaign to drastically increase awareness, encourage early detection and prevent costly extremity complications and amputations.
