2014 Winner: Dr. Jairaj Chintamani for Diasense

Diasense is a unique and innovative individualised solution. It is a non-invasive device that allows a physician to measure the neuropathy and pin point high risk ulcer prone zones in the feet, thereby allowing the physician to initiate preventive measures. This helps prevent formation of foot ulcers and gangrene development, potentially helping the patient avoid an amputation. This high-tech device uses sensors that run on a software to predict the possible ulcers with almost 90% accuracy. It could also prove useful for patient management for other diseases that involve nerve damage, such as leprosy and multiple sclerosis.
