WACO, Texas (PRWEB) October 26, 2015 -- While proper foot care should matter to everyone, for people with diabetes, protecting their feet is a serious health issue. According to the American Diabetes Association, ignoring common foot problems like calluses and poor circulation can lead to grave threats, including limb loss.
Just in time for American Diabetes Month this November, Spenco Medical Corporation has stocked its new line of MedicsTM Diabetic Insoles to help this growing segment of the population keep their feet healthier.
Spenco, a leading producer of high quality insoles and foot care products for almost 50 years, has specifically designed this premium full-length insole for the diabetic foot. Specialty features include:
- A Plastazote® Foam Top Cover, which reduces friction and cushions sensitive feet
- Polysorb® Memory Structured Foam, providing superior cushioning, impact suppression and comfort
- Even distribution of pressure at the bottom of the foot, reducing the likelihood of hot spots forming
- Deep heel cupping to help stabilize the back of the foot
- The Total Support® footbed, providing cushioning and orthotic arch support
The ADA estimates almost 30 million people in America are living with diabetes – nearly 10 percent of the population.
“With the large number of people affected by diabetes, we knew as a company we were in a position to help,” said Jeff Antonioli, Spenco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Replacing the inserts in regular shoes with our diabetic insoles will help people feel more comfortable while giving their feet some protection from serious threats.”
Calluses occur more often and build up faster on the feet of people with diabetes due to high-pressure areas under the foot, according to the ADA. Left untreated, calluses can become ulcers. Another threat is poor circulation, which can make the foot less able to fight infection and heal.
Created by the nonprofit organization, American Diabetes Month includes programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and people affected.
Spenco Diabetic Insoles are available on the Spenco website and in medical offices. They retail for $39.99.
Spenco also manufactures a line of premium first aid products that may benefit people with diabetes.
