Orthopedic self-forming insole for prevention and therapy of foot diseases

Orthopedic self-forming insole for prevention and therapy of foot diseases

Activity Start Date 30.06.2015
Advantages and Innovations: The innovation aspect of the offer lays in the use of materials with different elastic coefficients and capable of moulding-on. Due to this, the offered orthopedic profiled insole makes up for the reduced shock-absorbing function and keeps the foot muscular system active. The insoles are manufactured according to positive foot models that may be both standard, fitting the majority of patients, and individual, reflecting the specificity of the plantar surface of a particular patient.

Description of the offer: Use of orthopedic footwear and insoles is an effective and simple method for avoiding diabetic complications on feet. The drawbacks of the most of commercially available insoles are the reduced shock-absorbing function and exclusion of the foot muscular system from active operation. A small Russian innovative company from Kaluga region developed a technology for making orthopedic profiled insoles. The task of the research team was to avoid the known drawbacks of existing orthopedic insoles and to develop a full-contact insole, in order to increase the shock-absorbing function of the foot and to promote the prevention and therapy of foot diseases. The developed orthopedic profiled insole can be used as a simplest orthopedic aid for diabetic patients for prevention of complications ("diabetic foot" syndrome, purulo-necrotic complications, gangrene), as well as for correction of а static foot deformations of 1-2 degree, for compensation of limb shortening to 2 cm. The profiled orthopedic insole, unlike analogs, makes up for the reduced shock-absorbing function and keeps the foot muscular system active. The developed technology includes manufacturing of insoles out of materials with different elastic coefficients and capable of moulding-on. This helps to reduce the specific pressure over the foot, to relieve the most loaded parts of the foot, e.g. the heads of metatarsal bone and the heel region, to reduce or eliminate the zones with sharp pressure drops. The company is looking for partners, specialized in orthopedics, for technical cooperation and mutual promotion of products (prosthesis-orthopedic centres, wholesale medical traders, pharmacies and other relevant organisations).
