Need some help monitoring your glucose levels? Thanks to a new invention, it could be as easy as sleeping a pair of insoles into your shoes.
New Zealand-based Zephyr invented the inserts that detect diabetic peripheral neuropathy and track foot temperature.
â€œThe shoe insole includes a small radio transmitter that will transmit the data to a PC via radio frequency,â€ according to SciFi.com. â€œThis allows yourself, or your doc to keep an active eye on your condition and provide plenty of preventative measures to keep those feet nice, healthy and still attached.â€
For those not familiar with the disease, diabetics often loss their sense of feeling in their feet, which if left untreated leads to ulcers which can sometimes require amputation.
