Literature is replete with robust studies documenting the potential clinical utility and net protective effect of the use of temperature assessment/inflammometry in high-risk diabetic foot. We present a mobile phone-based device (FLIR One Personal Thermal Imager, FLIR, Inc., Wilsonville, OR, USA) and a stand-alone handheld device (Nubee, Duarte California, USA) to provide simple, quantifiable images to assist in rapid clinical visualization. Therefore, the purpose of this manuscript was to highlight the potential day-to-day application of these tools.
