How can Solesee Help?
Many patients find it very difficult to get down to their feet due to arthritis or back or knee pain, so foot checks are very difficult to carry out. Solesee provides the means for patients to check the soles and heels of their feet easily, independently and safely due to the shatterproof mirror used. Regular use of Solesee allows the patient to become familiar with their feet, allowing them to spot changes as soon as possible. Spotting changes early is the first step in the fight against ulcers and amputations. Solesee can also help patients identify areas of dry skin so that they can moisturise those areas.
Accompanying every Solesee Foot Inspection Mirror is a handy guide on what to look out for on your feet.Key selling points:
