Funded by the SME Instrument within the H2020 programme, Thermetrix’s disruptive technology PODIUM uses a combination of thermochromic liquid crystal sheet and high-res cameras, to provide a state-of-the-art diabetic foot monitor that can provide accurate early warning on the formation of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs).
 
The thermal patterns so picked up by PODIUM will be transmitted to a cloud portal helping patients, family and medical staff to detect and immediately treat conditions before the onset of ulceration. In this way, stress and inflammation can be reduced, tissue damage limited and the foot will return to normal. Critically, up to 80% of DFUs may be avoided.
