Eurecat designs a new foot protector that prevents ulcers

by Gemma Escarré,

The Eurecat technology centre, member of CataloniaBio & HealthTech, and the Maresme Healthcare Consortium have developed a new medical product that avoids the appearance of prolonged pressure ulcers.

It is a protector with a 3D fabric and sock-like, easy to use, which makes it more comfortable for users than other solutions on the market. It is the brainchild of Dr Jesús Alòs, a vascular surgeon at Mataró Hospital.

Pressure ulcers on the foot are skin lesions caused by the application of constant pressure as a result of reduced mobility on the part of the patient.
