DiaSHOE project: Digital Education for Diabetic Foot Control (Ref.: 2020-1-PT01-KA202-078687)



The Erasmus+ DiaSHOE project aims to prevent the Diabetic Foot Syndrome using adequate footwear by raising awareness of its importance among patients, informing health professionals about its properties and guiding manufacturers in the production of diabetic footwear. 

Statistics show that diabetes affects 463 million people in the world (2019). In Europe, there are approximately 60 million people diagnosed with diabetes, representing nearly 8% of the European population.

Complications associated with diabetes in the lower limbs such as Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS) are frequent. DFS can occur at any time during the patient’s life, but with proper care and the use of adequate footwear, people with diabetes can control it and avoid serious complications. Footwear indeed plays a crucial role in DFS, as wearing inappropriate footwear can aggravate it.

The project’s overall aim is to inform and guide three different target groups on prevention strategies related to the use of footwear and the development of the necessary skills: designers, technicians and managers in footwear SMEs; health technicians and assistants in shoe shops and orthopaedic clinics; and patients, their relatives, informal caregivers and teachers or educators.

The project focuses on the link between Diabetic Foot Syndrome and footwear, and expects to contribute to:

  • Raising awareness about DFS and the complications associated with inappropriate care and control of the diabetic foot.
  • Updating footwear training curricula with specific contents related to the diabetic foot control.
  • Improving the quality of life of people with diabetes.
  • Disseminate results from R&D initiatives in the field.


  • The project will produce training materials in 3 Digital Education Packages for different target groups:
    • Designers, technicians and managers in footwear SMEs.
    • Health technicians and assistants in shoe shops and orthopaedic clinics.
    • Patients, their relatives, informal caregivers and teachers or educators.
  • Piloting of each of the Education Packages.
