Thermidas for investors

Series A coming soon

Diabetes is reaching pandemic levels, affecting half a billion people.

The treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers costs approximately $150 billion annually
  • Approximately 2% of diabetic patients will have a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) at any given time
  • 80 % of lower extremity amputations (LEA’s) are preceded by a DFU
  • 50 % of DFU patients die within 5 years
  • 70 % of LEA patients die within 5 years

Number of adults with diabetes worldwide

A study by APMA found that among patients with commercial insurance, each $1 invested in care by a podiatrist results in $27 to $51 of savings for the health-care system. Among Medicare-eligible patients, each $1 invested in care by a podiatrist results in $9 to $13 of savings.

Early detection with
Infrared Thermography

  • Extensive research shows skin breakdown takes place with persistent >2°C elevated temperature for up to 10 days

  • Up to 75 % of diabetic foot ulcers can be prevented by early detection

  • Up to 91 % of pre-ulcerous sites can be identified by the detection of temperature anomalies
  • People with normal physiological function will reflect thermal symmetry​
  • The same body area on the contralateral sides of the body will have similar temperatures​
  • Infrared Thermography will instantly highlight anomalies​
