Neuropathic feet, especially those with deformity, should always be protected with some form of accommodative pressure and shear-dissipating Diabetic Insole. The harder the surface and the less accommodating the insert, the greater the risk of plantar ulceration. Modern materials provide improved methods of treatment and protection against this. By providing the medical professional with the most innovative materials available we can improve the chances of both cure and prevention of foot ulceration.

Proactive measures for the ‘at risk’ foot Foot ulceration through diabetes is the leading cause of lower limb amputation in the US and is today accepted as a growing problem in the UK. According to Diabetes UK, 1.4 million people in the UK suffer from the disease. From this figure around 5% of sufferers will develop foot ulcers that could to lead ‘avoidable’ amputation.

The good news is that simple preventative measures can greatly reduce the risk of foot ulcers in diabetic patients. As you may know, neuropathic feet, especially those with deformity, should always be protected with some form of accommodative pressure and shear-dissipating insole. The harder the surface and the less accommodating the insole, the greater the risk of plantar ulceration.

Algeos’ Diaped range of diabetic insoles are designed to be used in everyday footwear, but we do reccommend that all diabetic insoles are assessed or even fitted NHS/HPC registered Podiatrists.
