The Woundcare Circle Algorithm
“The DFA (diabetic foot offloading algorithm) is a “lingua franca” that can work in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, and all the way to Los Angeles, Houston or Rome”. It is inspired by the fundamental principles and scientific elements of international guidelines. The flexibility of this algorithm is that it can mix and combine technologies and be easily understood by everybody, thus providing appropriate therapeutic guide to doctors, podiatrists or healthcare operators who take care of patient presenting the risk, high risk and very high risk of diabetic foot”.
