Diabetic inserts are designed to evenly distribute weight across your foot. In addition, they cradle your heel to minimize movement of your foot inside your shoe, thus, reducing friction. For this reason, a properly fitting shoe is extremely important and having the correct insert is a huge part of the fit.
People who have been diagnosed with diabetes can benefit from the inserts we have at New York OrthoLab. As people with this health condition know, foot complications are one of the possible side effects of this disease, and they can be very serious. It’s a good idea to pay attention to the condition of the feet, and take extra steps to protect them. Doing so can help keep them healthy, and help prevent problems from arising. Inserts can be especially effective for diabetics that already have foot conditions such as bunions or hammertoes.
New York OrthoLab’s diabetic insoles were developed right here in Long Island, New York by a skilled team of specialists with over 15 years of experience in the field. The inserts have been specifically molded to help create an even distribution of weight, and to minimize the friction created when walking. Both of these things work to prevent potential foot issues such as calluses and blisters, which can be serious for those with diabetes. Our inserts also help support good blood circulation, which is another problem many diabetics deal with due to their health condition.
Not only do our diabetic inserts help provide protection for the feet, they are also very comfortable. Extra cushioning works to support muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and the distribution of weight across the insole helps eliminate pressure points. PTU flexible shell and the PPT+ Plastazote top cover feature materials that have just the right blend of give and smoothness. All of the features these shoe insoles provide were selected specifically with diabetic feet in mind. It makes an enormous difference!
