Diabetic-Foot-Assessment-Kit

As vascular calcification rarely extends to the digital arteries, a more reliable measurement of peripheral arterial disease in people with diabetes is the absolute toe pressure or the toe-brachial pressure index (TBPI). (Vowden)

Toe pressures are directly related to the likelihood of foot ulceration healing. With absolute toe pressures above 55mmHg, 97% of diabetic foot ulcers healed, whereas with pressures of less than 30mmHg only 40% healed. (Carter)
