Abstract
Diabetic foot is a very serious issue that occurs as a result of diabetes. Diabetic foot is a group of
syndrome in which neuropathy, ischemia and infection might occur. These problems lead to the breakdown of
tissue material and thereby resulting in possible amputation. If the sugar or glucose level is higher than normal,
then the condition is referred to as Diabetes Mellitus. The epidemiological study of diabetes shows that it has
alarmingly doubled and so far has grown by over 100% in the past fifteen years. The major complication of
diabetes mellitus is the diabetic foot ulcer. Increased sugar level causes imbalance of peripheral musculature and
soft tissue occurs in the foot which seriously alters its morphology. This further induces foot deformity. Yet the
diagnosis of foot ulcers is not an easy task, whose prolongation leads to amputation of legs. In our proposed
system, we are going to determine the foot pressure of diabetic patients using sensors in an insole. The insole
consists of Force Sensitive Resistors (force sensors) which are placed on its foot pressure points. Using this setup,
we can be able to predict the upcoming foot ulcer for the diabetic victims. The motivation behind the project is to
bring awareness among the public about the foot ulcer which is probably ignored by the people without knowing
about it. By using mobile phone technology, our proposed system will be compatible to all the general public by
providing a comfortable environment while using it.

Key words: Diabetics, Foot Ulcer, Force sensor, Amputation, Mobile phone
