Seamless visual-based remote patient monitoring for patients at risk of diabetic foot ulcers.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs) are the most brutal complications of diabetes. By the numbers:

Daily visual inspection of the bottom of the feet is the most effective way to identify early signs of ulcers and treat them before invasive intervention is necessary, but most patients aren’t able to comply with these inspections reliably.

Empo Health is automating daily visual foot inspections and giving podiatrists reliable eyes out of the clinic. As compared to temperature-based approaches, Empo’s visual approach allows for rapid scans, enables specific computer vision analysis, and fits more easily into the standard-of-care for podiatrists.

Imaging Bathroom Scale for Patient Ease of Use

High-resolution foot images and body weight are captured simultaneously, integrating seamlessly into a patient’s daily routine like their normal weight scale.

Cloud Processing for Automated Image Screening

Images analyzed with advanced computer vision capabilities in the cloud to identify areas of change in the feet.

Digital Health Platform for Clinical Efficiency

Alerts are sent to podiatrists with full-color images, enabling a rapid response, remote triage, and non-invasive intervention to prevent early issues from reaching severe outcomes.
