An Insole That Monitors for Foot Ulcers

The Diabetes Innovation Challenge allows the type 1 diabetes community to hear the elevator pitches of the potential next generation of innovators in diabetes treatment and technology. Three of 10 finalists will win a collective pot of $250,000 in prizes and in-kind support that will be awarded on May 21st. Also, whichever finalist of the 10 can win the People’s Choice if they get the most online votes by May 19th.

To assist in the People’s Choice voting, we asked these 10 entrepreneurs to make a short video about their work. Here’s a video from the folks at Bonbouton about an insole that monitors for foot ulcers in people with diabetes:
