AcuStep and Diabetes



Diabetic insensate foot ulcers are largely preventable. AcuStep has developed a set of preventive “tools” to assist the diabetic provider to significantly reduce the annual cost of diabetic foot management of the active diabetic foot ulcer and the incidence of diabetic foot ulcers. These “tools” consist of both in-shoe monitoring and protective devices (custom inserts) developed from measurement of in-shoe gait data, are supported by a number of US patents and are registered with the FDA. The AcuStep Pressure Pro-DM custom insert has received a HCPCS Code A-5513 determination. Read more...



The AcuStep system has the unique capability to measure not only in-shoe peak pressures during one’s normal gait but to manufacture a special DPRO orthosis (Pressure Pro DM™) specifically designed to locate and redistribute peak pressures directly from the collected data. Further, the AcuStep system allows subsequent measurements to confirm if in-shoe peak plantar foot pressures are being maintained at a therapeutic level. The AcuStep system is the first in-shoe product that provides the technological capability to locate, measure and correct peak shear stress and vertical pressures acting on the plantar foot during gait.
