The aim of the white paper summarised in this article is to preliminary assess what evidence exists for the efficacy of a vibrating insole such as Floave to reduce foot pain.

Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a severe complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) resulted from lesions in the plantar tissue that can go unnoticed after damage to the peripheral nervous system. Due to difficulty healing, amputations, and cost, the best solution for a DFU is prevention. Path Feel will revolutionize DFU prevalence through personalized medicine, integrated care, and diagnostics. The innovative device detects elevated plantar pressure and temperature and provides haptic feedback in response. This facilitates behavioral change through visual alerts, ultimately preventing DFUs while improving mobility.
The Walk With Path team has been working lately on developing Floave, a wellness device aimed at helping its users keep motivated to remain active, and to contribute to battling the mental health epidemic modern society is facing.
