Abstract

AIM:

Evaluation of feasibility and reliability of Mobile-Telemedicine Systems (M-TS) in the remote prevention of diabetes related complications.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

A feasibility-reliability evaluation based on a simulating experimentation by ten specialists (N=10) who examined a diabetic patient on the electronic space of a mobile experimental telemedicine system (MU-Exp.-TS).

RESULTS:

I. Remote prevention of diabetic foot and other diabetes related complications is feasible (acceptability: 89-100%). II. Remote ulcer classification and diabetic foot amputation risk estimation: Accuracy=89%.

CONCLUSION:

The proposed MU-TS based multidisciplinary approach and prevention of diabetes related complications is feasible while that of diabetic foot is both feasible and reliable.
