About 60 to 70 percent of us have some form of neuropathy. The most common type is peripheral neuropathy, which causes pain or loss of feeling in the toes, feet, legs, hands, and arms. We we don't treat injuries to our feet right away, doctors may have to amputate. But if we catch little problems with our feet before they became major, people with diabetes can prevent at least half of these amputations. Until now the problem has been that checking the bottoms of our feet wasn't easy enough with any of the mirrors in our homes. Now, however, a company called Insight Healthcare Solutions has combined the simple idea of a mirror with the basic needs of our ...
