Amit Jain’s Triple Assessment of Foot in Diabetes — a rapid screening tool

Diabetic foot is on the increase with prevalence rates of diabetes growing around the world. In spite of this, it is frequently a neglected entity in many countries. Screening of the diabetic foot serves to identify any underlying problem and helps one to immediately institute preventive and therapeutic measures. There are few screening tools currently used for diabetic foot. Amit Jain’s Triple Assessment of Diabetic Foot is a new, fast and easy screening tool from the Indian subcontinent that addresses the classic triad of the diabetic foot (neuropathy, ischemia, and infection) both specifically and effectively.
