Podartis TD PO500 (1pc)
TD is a post-operative clinically tested piece of footwear recommended in the case of hallux valgus and diabetic ulcers on the forefoot and midfoot.
There is no need for crutches. The rigid biomechanical outsole provides more stability and protection, allowing the patient to walk safely and return to normal life as soon as possible. Being 22-mm thick, it enables the wearer to maintain a natural posture and minimises dysmetria with the healthy limb, helping the patient to mimic normal walking movements. The rigid outsole lowers the risk of re-ulceration in diabetic patients by over 50% (tests conducted by the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli), University of Bologna).
The Zero Insole (PO600) is included in the package and has an 8° offload which allows pressure to be shifted from the forefoot to the rearfoot; it has been made from two differentiated-density materials so that the midfoot and rearfoot (with a higher density) can bear the patient’s weight whereas the metatarsal zone (less dense) is softer, protecting the foot and taking its shape. The Zero Insole can be customised to suit the individual foot (selective offloading).
The triple-velcro fastening means that the shoe can be opened completely at the front and adjusted for a perfect fit, accommodating swollen or sore feet and allowing for offloading insoles to be inserted.
