How can an orthotic reduce plantar ulcers?

Case Study (PDF)


The New Vasyli – Armstrong II shear reducing orthotic features the same patented Glidesoft technology developed in the USA. However, it now has a wider fore foot profile making it suitable for XW footwear. In addition the EVA foot bed has been reduced by 50% distal to the metatarsals reducing the fore foot thickness. The fore foot width is also trimmable making it even more flexible when fitting standard, wide or X wide footwear.

The Vasyli – Armstrong II is now the "Sensitive feet" orthotic as it is suitable for those patients that suffer from plantar sensitivity - loss of plantar fat pad, arthritis, blistering as well as peripheral neuropathy. Clinically** and scientifically* validated to reduce shear forces and the incidence of plantar ulcerations compared to standard Diabetic insoles.

* Wear & biomechanical characteristics of a novel shear reducing insole with implications for high risk persons with sensitive feet: Lavery et al 2005.

** Evaluation of the effectiveness of a shear reducing insole compared to a standard insole design to prevent foot ulceration in high risk patients with Diabetes.
