Therapeutic Standard & Anatomical with VyGel™
Therapeutic orthoses are designed for people with diabetes, arthritis, or other conditions that result in sensitive feet. Constructed with a multi-density material combination of PLASTAZOTE® and cellular urethane, these orthoses offer superb resilience, cushioning, and shock absorption. Because of its distinctive self contouring capabilities and hypoallergenic formulation, PLASTAZOTE® is recognized by medical professionals as the material of choice for treating diabetic/arthritic feet. Therapeutic orthoses are designed to fit into both traditional footwear and "additional depth" orthopedic shoes.
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, metatarasalgia, 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.
