It is crucial to understand the connection between diabetes and foot care. Diabetics are more vulnerable to foot problems because diabetes can damage nerves and reduce blood flow to the feet. One of the most common and troublesome side effects of the disease is poor circulation and loss of sensitivity in the feet.
The American Diabetes Association estimates that one in five people with diabetes who seek hospital care do so for foot problems. With proper foot care, most serious health problems associated with diabetes can be prevented. Proper foot care includes washing your feet daily.
Regular use of The FootMate® System can help stimulate blood flow to the feet and aid in keeping circulation problems to a minimum. The FootMate® System leaves feet thoroughly cleaned, conditioned, and massaged- including the often neglected areas between the toes. The massage stimulates circulation and blood flow to the feet and produces a feeling of all-over well-being and health which is important for a diabetic patient.
