STANDUP

Smartphone Thermal ANalysis for Diabetic foot Ulcer Prevention and treatment

STANDUP is the research project #777661 funded by the European Community. It is a 4 years project that started the first of January 2018. The research group is composed of 6 universities all over the world and of 2 European high tech companies. STANDUP aims at reducing diabetic foot ulcers incidence by using a smartphone associated to a thermal camera plugged into the smartphone. In the STANDUP project, six workpackages (WP) will be developed.

WP1 will permit to detect possible hyperthermia of the plantar foot surface.

WP2 will assess temperature, color, and 3D shape of DF ulcer along time.

WP3 will see the development of new insole.

WP4 will test these systems during clinical trials in hospitals.

WP5 will test advanced prototypes.

WP6 will concern the communication, dissemination and exploitation of the project.
