Scientists Create Shoe Insole That Heals Diabetic Foot Ulcers (VIDEO)

Injuries sustained by diabetes patients do not heal on their own. In fact, most diabetics are at risks of developing wounds that refuse to heal. With foot ulcers, the diabetes patient risks amputation as the ultimate solution.  But there won’t be the need for amputation anymore with a new oxygen shoe insole created by Purdue University researchers.

In a study published in the Materials Research Society Communications – a journal by Cambridge Core, the shoe insole can heal diabetic foot ulcers by supplying oxygen to wound sites.

Oxygen Insole Promotes Natural Healing Of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

According to reports, many diabetes patients with foot ulcers lose feelings in the affected foot. This is due to the fact that the high level of blood sugar has damaged nerves fibers in the affected foot, leading to loss of feelings. When diabetics lose feelings in their foot, they may not be aware that a foot bumped against stones or some other objects has suffered skin tissue damage, causing ulcers. A combination of high blood sugar and dry skin occasioned by diabetes slows down ulcers from healing.

About 15% of Americans with diabetes go on to develop foot ulcers. Many of these end up loosing their toes, foot or leg.

The newly developed oxygen shoe insole promotes a natural healing process in diabetic foot ulcers. A Purdue professor of electrical and computer engineering, Babak Ziaie, said the shoe insole can supply oxygen throughout a day, aiding easy mobility.

Diabetic foot ulcers can be treated when dead tissues are removed from the wound and patients take their weight off the affected foot. Following this, a total-contact cast is worn by the patient to protect the affected foot.

Desmond Bell, a podiatrist in wound management and amputation prevention at the Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, and the founder of the Save a Leg, Save a Life Foundation noted an affected foot can heal up faster if the insole delivers oxygen directly to the ulcer from within the total-contact cast.

Oxygen Insole Can Be Customized To Carry the Weight of Different Diabetes Patients

The Purdue scientists created silicone rubber into insoles using lasers for shaping. Then they developed oxygen reservoirs able to supply oxygen from within the insole directly to the foot ulcer. Considering that silicone is flexible and able to absorb oxygen well, the researchers used laser machining to control how much oxygen is released straight at the wound site, “rather than poison the rest of the foot with too much oxygen,” said Hongjie Jiang, a postdoctoral researcher in electrical and computer engineering.

With an individual weighing between 53 to 81 kilograms (117 to 179 pounds), the insole can release oxygen last eight straight hours if the person is standing. However, it is possible to design the insole to take on any weight and release oxygen accordingly. Based on a wound profile, a photo of the affected foot and doctor’s advice, it is expected that insole manufacturers can deliver exactly what a patient needs to heal his ulcer.

The researchers are planning to print the entire insole using 3D. And they are also planning to see how diabetics with foot ulcers will actually heal with the insoles. The scientists have filed for patency rights to the insole technology.
