OIDO monitors diabetic patients with a high risk of developing foot problems in order to detect small injuries, infections or blisters in an early stage.

Every day the patient will be prompted to do a foot screening.  If complications occur, a specialist caregiver will be visiting the patient to provide medical care. The caregiver can also set a series of excercises that the patient can perform at home, using his or her OIDO.
