    Where did that come from :confused: :confused: How many times have we heard of products going to do that before?

    What sort of diabetic foot complications are these insoles going to potentially help with? ... the plantar neuropatic ulcers.

    How many plantar neuropathic ulcers go on to amputation? ... not many

    What is the initiating event in most diabetic foot complications that lead to most amputations? ... single event trauma

    How can these insoles detect single event trauma? ... they can't

    How can these insole prevent 85% of amputations? ... they can't.

    I recall talking to an exasperated manufacturer of the padded socks for diabetics. He could not understand why the government would not give him a massive subsidy to provide the socks as his product was going to massively decrease the amputation rate.

    I think I have had the exact same conversation with the same person :) ;)

    I did not mean to imply that the smart insole technology would not be useful, its just the claim re a reduction in the amputation rate.
