Beat Diabetes (Extended Version)
Every seven seconds someone dies from it, every 20 seconds someone loses a limb to it. What we’re talking about is Diabetes.
Just in time for Diabetes Awareness Month-GraMedica, a global orthopedic foot solutions company, wants to help the millions of Americans dealing with diabetes get back on their feet again.
Problem is, many diabetics have misaligned feet where the ankle bone is not properly aligned with the heel bone. This creates an imbalance of forces negatively impacting the alignment within the foot and can also affect the alignment of the knees, hips and back. The more active someone is with misaligned feet, the more pain they experience in their entire body. If you hurt when you exercise, you stop. Hence, why it’s very challenging to get many diabetics inspired to get the exercise they desperately need to control their blood sugar levels.
The revolutionary FDA cleared titanium stent is called HyProCure® . The minimally invasive procedure, which takes only 20 minutes and has a 94% success rate, involves the placement of this small stent into the naturally occurring space in between the ankle and heel bones. Instantly, the foot is realigned and the natural range of motion is restored. Within a week after surgery, patients are able to walk without the excessive strain acting on their feet, knees, hips or back.
