Scale for the older folks with diabetes


This bathroom scale, called Insight Foot Care Scale, serves a dual purpose: it checks your weight and checks the bottoms of your feet for erythema and signs of inflammation. Those with diabetes are supposed to check their feet everyday, which could help to prevent over half of the 75,000 amputations in the US every year among people with diabetes.

The scale has illuminated, magnified mirrors so you don’t have to twist your feet to check underneath. It costs $99 and you can purchase one here.
