The Podiatry team would like to find out how to help people with diabetes access help quickly if they have a foot problem, by using a new smart phone app.
People over 18 years of age who have diabetes and have recently had a foot ulcer which has healed.
There will be seven to eight visits to the Podiatry department at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust over a 12 month period. The first and final visit will be approximately one hour and a half, with the other study visits lasting for approximately one hour.
You will be asked to download the app to your phone and use this to support your daily diabetes management routine. The app will give you daily hints and tips on how to look after your feet.
You may also use the additional features of the app if you would like to. For example, you will be able to input and track other aspects of your diabetes management that will potentially impact on your foot health, including blood glucose levels, BMI, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
