This wearable device is embedded with micro-sensors that recognize temperature changes in the feet, offering rapid detection of inflammation and injury. Through Siren’s unique RPM platform, trained nurses can swiftly coordinate care with the patient’s doctor, improving the outcomes for many suffering from diabetic foot complications, reports Siren.
Patients wear their Siren Socks daily, which measure foot temperature at six locations to determine if inflammation occurs. When foot temperature goes up, this indicates early signs of inflammation and a licensed nurse calls the patient to check on any symptoms and maybe ask for photos. This is a crucial tool in ensuring patients with neuropathy receive guidance at the first signs of an ulcer—before it leads to more serious complications or amputation.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
