Can foot amputation be prevented in diabetics with AI powered diagnosis?

Foot amputation is a major problem in diabetics in the south Asia. A small blister or ulcer in the foot can develop into a major complication where the foot/toe needs to be amputated. Due to lack of sensation in the foot, most of the time the injuries are unnoticed. An AI powered solution that involves sensors and certain preliminary tests to prematurely detect the risk of foot amputation in diabetics at an earlier stage would contribute a lot to reduce complications that might occur.
