How can an orthotic reduce plantar ulcers?
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.
