George, a 70-year-old type II diabetic in relatively poor control, started with the SomaPulse in mid-July 2013, an hour in the morning, an hour in the evening. He had previously been in care at a wound management clinic for 2 ½ years with little progress. Serious discussion was held regarding the need for amputation.
As can be seen in the pictures on April 5 and 19, he had a large amount of swelling of his foot not only on the sole but also on the upper surface. On April 19, the open wound, i.e. the hole, in the sole of the foot was much more dramatically obvious.
By mid-July when he started the SomaPulse the situation had continued to get worse. Within 2 weeks of initiating the SomaPulse he had dramatic improvement in his foot and the hole in the sole of his foot.
By December (5 months of SomaPulse use) the open wound was completely closed and almost all the edema was gone in the foot. By this time he could walk with minimal discomfort.
