Foot Clinic

       This unit performs biothesiometry and doppler tests. Biothesiometry test checks the nerve sensation in the hands and the feet. Doppler test assesses the blood flow in arteries and veins and checks the blood pressure in both the limbs. Patients having Diabetic Neuropathy and Peripheral Vascular Disease will be imparted the necessary foot care education.
