Orpyx® launches Orpyx SI® Flex Sensory Insoles and Diabetes Healthspan Extension care model
Calgary, AB, Canada, June 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Orpyx® Medical Technologies Inc. (Orpyx), a digital health company focused on extending the health span of patients with diabetes, announced the launch of the Orpyx SI® Flex Sensory Insole system and Orpyx Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) services. This remote monitoring program drives engagement and extends mobility for people living with diabetes by transforming patient care through real-world patient data, analytics, and coaching.
The Orpyx SI Flex Sensory Insole system is a wearable technology designed to help prevent plantar foot complications for at-risk patients with peripheral neuropathy.
Along with pressure, the system captures wear time to determine how compliant the patient is to their provider’s treatment plan, step count to help dose activity levels, and temperature the last line of defense to indicate when inflammation is present and tissue damage is occurring. The ultra-thin, prefabricated sensory insoles fit in most every-day footwear, making them practical and comfortable for a broad range of patients.
Orpyx is changing the conversation by initially focusing on preventing foot ulceration by generating the most robust set of real-world plantar data. Historically, the focus has been on how to treat patients’ foot ulcers after they have already formed, with disappointing results as 25% of people with diabetes will develop an ulcer during their lifetime. These ulcers have a detrimental impact on patients’ mobility often resulting in life-shortening events such as amputation which can cause a ripple effect of social isolation, mental health challenges, and in the most complex situations death. Most diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are preventable, so we are on a mission to help patients and providers achieve improved, sustainable outcomes.
Healthcare providers seeking additional information to help their patients prevent DFUs can learn more about the new Orpyx SI Flex Sensory Insoles at https://www.orpyx.com/.
