GloboTec® Soft Diabetes
Effective protection for sensitive feet.
The foot orthosis has been specially designed for diabetics and rheumatics. The feet of diabetic and rheumatic patients are very sensitive and therefore require the correct care from an early stage of the disease. The aims are: Even distribution of body weight over a large foot load surface area, prevention of pressure peaks and effective orthopedic support tailored to the individual foot. It is important to counteract inappropriate loads on the foot and the consequences of these.Even distribution of body weight over a large foot load surface area prevents pressure peaks – the risk of injury can therefore be lowered
Specially adapted to the foot and to the diabetic and rheumatic clinical profiles
Suitable for use in comfort shoes or special diabetic shoes
RELIEVES PRESSURE WITH EVERY STEP
Diabetics are generally very insensitive to pain even in the early stages of the disease, therefore they are only partially aware of foot complaints, or may be totally unaware of these. The special layer construction of the Soft Diabetes provides particularly soft cushioning for the very sensitive feet of diabetics and rheumatics. The purpose of this foot orthosis is to reduce the risk of injury from the outset and to provide orthopedic support.
DESIGNS AND USES
The construction of the foot orthosis is specifically designed for “diabetic foot syndrome” and “rheumatoid foot deformities”. It can be worn in comfort shoes or special diabetic shoes.

CONSTRUCTION OF THE FOOT ORTHOSIS
1 and 2) Cushion layer (PU, EVA/PE):
The particularly thick cushion layer, made of high-quality cushioning materials and consisting of three layers, ensures an even redistribution of pressure, a reduction in load peaks and a long functional life.
3) Thermoplastic reinforcement element:
The base layer does not have any pre-shaped transverse arch supports.
4) Long-sole base layer:
The EVA/PE layer is harder and provides support for the foot, especially the instep.
USESSuitable for people with diabetic foot syndrome and rheumatoid foot deformities in the early stages
SERVICEABLE LIFEHigh-quality and durable materials mean that the foot orthosis remains serviceable even after prolonged use
We recommend that the functional properties should be checked regularly
