At CES 2018, Sensoria® Health and Optima Molliter will announce a partnership to create the first smart diabetic footwear product that will monitor a patient's compliance to the clinician’s prescribed mechanical off-loading protocol. The smart device, Motus Smart powered by Sensoria® Health, will combine pressure sensors and the Sensoria® Core technologies together with the clinically tested Optima Molliter Off-loading System.

“Unfortunately, we know that diabetic foot ulceration, if not clinically controlled and managed, can lead to infection, amputation, and in some cases, death of the patient,” says Dr. David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery at the University of Southern California (USC). “There is a huge need for new technology that addresses diabetic foot ulceration and provides interventions before amputation becomes medically necessary. There has never been a greater need for the merger of next-gen consumer electronics and medical devices. This is enormously exciting.”
