Suitability - For individuals with concerns for skin breakdown, arthritic changes in their feet, diabetic conditions, reducing shearing forces at the foot surfaces and those who prefer added comfort from the self molding process inherent in the combination of a Plastazote and polyurethane insert. Vygel heels provide additional shock attenuation at heel strike.
Additional Considerations - bunions, charcot foot, diffuse callosities, insensate feet, metarasalgia, pre-ulcerated sites, plantar fasciitis, some foot deformities, morton's neuralgia and the need for forefoot accommodation. The addition of an increased metatarsal support in the Anatomical design is designed to facilitate off-loading of the metatarsal head area. This insole was designed to reduce mean peak pressures at the site of neuropathic ulceration.
