Developing medical innovations for diabetic foot ulcers

Growing up in The Wirral, Sagar Jadeja struggled at school but always enjoyed learning about science. He spent time volunteering at a hospital and care home, which he credits with giving him the chance to interact with a wide range of people, both young and old.

Sagar studied to become a dentist before realising his real passion was in healthcare. He then started Medical Intelligence Group, which focuses on driving disease prevention over treatment.

The company’s first innovation is a remote monitor for people who suffer from diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). Sagar has developed a working prototype to help measure an ulcer and has a clinical trial planned.

“The issue with these ulcers is the detrimental impact to quality of life and that there’s a risk of death. Like a lot of people, I came to learn about these ulcers from a family member who developed a DFU. I learnt that there is a significant lack of resources in the NHS to manage this patient group and how such a monitor could help,” he says.
