Wearable technology saving limbs of diabetes patients
from American Innovation via Fox News
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports someone loses a limb from diabetic complications every 20 seconds. Diabetes causes a loss of sensation, leaving ulcers to go unnoticed and become infected. If not treated soon enough, the limb has to be amputated. But doctors at the University of Arizona Medical Center, in Tucson, Arizona, have found a way to prevent the development of these ulcers, and it's as simple as putting on a pair of socks.
