The finger cap below is a device that attempts to protect patients who have diabetic neuropathy from injuries resulting from physical trauma. For example, if a person with this form of neuropathy attempts to cook, they may cut their thumbs while slicing vegetables. Similarly, person could be protected from injuries such as paper cuts.
