DIABETEC foot care concept for diabetics

Science-based approach with quality management system for optimal, efficient care of diabetic feet


... for

  • prevention as well as treatment of diabetic foot lesions
  • targeted and permanent relief to the diabetic foot particularly exposed to pressure, impact and shear forces
  • precise control of the therapeutic effect by accurate detection and documentation of the pressure reduction effected by the foot care

... with

  • early use of various measurement and analysis techniques (pedography, 2-D impression of the foot, 3-D digitization of the foot)
  • subsequent supply of customized, computer-based, diabetes-adapted, high-resistance, soft foam footbeds based on modern CAD/CAM methods and polyurethane material, manufactured using ​​a sandwich method taking into account the anatomy, bio-mechanics and pathology of the diabetic foot and the patient’s body parameters, such as weight and individual foot condition.


Diabetes-adapted soft foam footbeds

The DIABETEC soft foam footbed is suitable for diabetes-adapted protective and prefabricated shoes, individual custom-made orthopedic footwear, diabetes-friendly sports shoes, as well as for Bata-adapt work safety shoes. It also allows for the care of patients with open foot wounds in special therapeutic relief shoes and prefabricated orthotics.

In before-and-after comparisons, clinical studies have demonstrated the continued effectiveness of DIABETEC footbeds after permanent wearing: They confirm the pressure-relieving effect, i.e., less callus formation and thus a lower risk of ulceration: only 30% of patients develop an open foot ulcer again.
