This research project aims to empower people with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) in their self-care through a novel mobile application called MyFootCare. MyFootCare promotes self-care through a focus on personal goals, reminders to enact care and novel visual analytics including digital images and self-reported symptoms, to allow patients and their clinicians to track their healing progress.

This project brings together leading experts in DFU care, imaging, and human-computer interaction from across four partner organisations: Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Metro North Hospital and Health Service, Diabetic Foot Australia and Wound Innovations.
