How can a device measuring sensory impairment in feet be designed to simplify the usage for both patients and nursing staff?

This project focuses on early detection and identification of diabetes related nerve damage in the feet. Vibro Pes performs standardised measurements on both the tactile sense and the vibration sense to capture an accurate record of a patient's potential nerve damage. The measurements are presented visually to the patient, thereby increasing disease awareness and the opportunity for self-care.
