I have diabetic foot ulcers. Can I use iWALK2.0?
Diabetic foot ulcers are often accompanied by neuropathy, or damage to the peripheral nerves of the foot or feet. This can cause numbness and reduced proprioception, making basic balance difficult. If you have difficulty balancing on your non-affected limb, then you probably will not have success with the iWALk2.0. To find out, try this – if, in addition to the standard qualifications listed on the product page, you can stand unassisted on only your unaffected foot for 30 seconds, without assistance, then you’re likely capable of using the iWALK2.0. But because of the special circumstances surrounding diabetic induced neuropathy, we recommend that you check with your physician or therapist prior to using the iWALK2.0. If your diabetic condition resulted in lower leg amputation, you’ll find some more information about suitability here.
