Ulcers from diabetes? New shoe insole could provide healing on-the-go

Diabetes can lead to ulcers that patients don’t even feel or notice until the sight of blood. And because ulcers can’t heal on their own, 14 to 24 percent of diabetics in the U.S. who experience them end up losing their toes, foot or leg. Funding for this work was provided by the NextFlex PC 1.0 Project.
