Conference Description:
Diabetic Foot is one of the most serious complications of Diabetes – which is of an epidemic scale in both developed and developing countries. Ulceration of the feet would severely aggravate the overall health status and patient condition and will likely have socioeconomic impact as well, particularly if eventually leading to foot or limb amputation. Clearly, managing the diabetic foot is a multidisciplinary effort by experts such as podiatrists, orthopedists, vascular and plastic surgeons, dermatologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, diabetes specialists, biomechanists, rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, nutritionists, nurses, footwear and orthotic consultants and industry research & development leaders. Biomedical research in gait and motion science, tissue mechanics, microbiology, sensor technology, image processing and big data is foundational to clinical practice. This conference will provide a first-of-its-kind platform for multidisciplinary top-tier scientific and clinical discussions regarding the management and salvage of the diabetic foot, and will address technological innovation, debates and controversies in the field.

The conference aims are as follows:
• Facilitate an open conversation on common ground among the different research and clinical disciplines involved in the management and salvage of the diabetic foot
• Highlight current controversies related to managing the diabetic foot and explain the present opposing views
• Deliver state-of-the-art knowledge regarding clinical prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers by the key opinion leaders in the field
• Showcase promising research and technological breakthroughs in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers
• Discuss risk assessment tools and the current and future medical technologies and devices supporting these clinical tasks
• Analyze and assess products that are available for prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers and the quality of scientific and clinical evidence to support relevant claims currently made by manufacturers

We welcome attendees from the above-listed and other disciplines to the majestic city of Vienna to discuss the burning topics in diabetic foot management which include:

• Risk assessment for diabetic foot ulceration in individuals: Clinical practice and available technologies to support practice
• Early detection and diagnostics of pre-ulceration conditions
• Ultrasound, infrared thermography, bio-impedance and other imaging modalities to determine foot tissue health status in persons with diabetes
• In-shoe and wearable sensors to monitor the diabetic foot in real-time
• e-Health and smart phone application technology to protect the diabetic foot
• Big data for analysis of ulceration risks, epidemiology and patterns
• Telemedicine to diagnose ulceration and manage the diabetic foot
• Innovative medical device technologies in early detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers
• Individualized medicine in managing the diabetic foot
• In-shoe microclimate and microclimate design of footwear and orthotic devices aimed at protecting the diabetic foot
• Innovation in treating foot ulcers using surgical and non-surgical approaches
• Dressing technologies for treating diabetic foot ulcers
• Infections of diabetic foot ulcers and effective treatment of infections 
• Smart textiles and smart materials to protect and monitor the diabetic foot
• Negative pressure therapy for treating diabetic foot ulcers
• Novel approaches for neuropathy measurement and quantification
• Tissue biomechanics and tissue structure and function in the diabetic foot
• Off-loading and pressure redistribution devices to protect the diabetic foot
• Innovative footwear and shoes for diabetics
• Analysis of posture, gait and motion in diabetes and diabetic neuropathy
• Rehabilitation after diabetic foot amputation
• Orthotics and prosthetics for persons with diabetes
• Hyperbaric medicine to treat diabetic foot ulcers
