(Orpyx), an innovator in digital health therapeutics, announced the launch of Orpyx SI Sensory Insoles with Remote Patient Monitoring for the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and neuropathy-related ulcers. By monitoring pressure, temperature, and movement, the Orpyx SI Sensory Insole system provides the wearer with real-time audiovisual alerts and allows them to immediately take action to resolve high-pressure areas that may lead to tissue breakdown.

In a recently published randomized controlled trial, when compared to standard of care, the Orpyx SI technology* reduced DFU recurrence by up to 86% for people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy and a previous DFU. Neuropathy, which occurs in 70% of people with diabetes, is characterized by a lack of sensation and pain in the feet. Due to this lack of sensation, people with neuropathy often can't detect when tissue damage is occurring. It is the number one cause of lower-extremity amputations when left under-treated.
*Study was conducted with first generation SurroSense Rx® which has the same pressure algorithm as Orpyx SI Sensory Insoles
