We don’t just check pulses, we use photoplethysmography (PPG) to measure blood pressure in your toes. The gold standard in vascular assessment of diabetics. This gives is a real value, that can be measured year after year to pick up any changes that may be occurring.
We also use Neurothesiometry which also gives us a measurable value in volts. This tests the level of sensation and helps monitor any loss of sensation over time.
We send a report to your GP within a week of performing our diabetic foot assessment.
