Foot Health Monitoring
Diabetic foot amputation affected 70,000 patients a year, cost the healthcare system $15 billion dollars and have a tremendous social impact.
Inkjet Printing Technology
Customized inkjet printing of graphene solution was utilized on different substrates including flexible electronic compatible Kapton and other textile substrate material.
Inkjet printing has many advantages over non-solution graphene processing technology with minimal waste generation, easy to scale up and retrofit to a roll-to-roll manufacturing facility.
The leading cause for the diabetic foot amputation was attributed to the lack of foot health monitoring technology, especially for patients with neuropathy conditions. This patient population was suggested to integrate their feet check-ups into daily routine and communicate with health care providers with any abnormality.
