      Describe the Problem Statement

      Currently, it is recommended that diabetes patient go for annual foot screening. It takes a lot of nursing manpower to screen all diabetes patients in Singapore if they come. Currently diabetes patients can go for foot screening in polyclinics, family medicine clinics and community health centres. With increasing number of diabetes patients, it is not sustainable to keep building foot screening facilities. There are also barriers to diabetes foot screening so there is a need for a low cost and easily accessible manner for diabetes patients to go for diabetes foot screening.
