The Foot care clinic will be a regional center where patients can be treated for a variety of conditions, including in-growing toe nail, fungal infections of the toe, callus, while providing diagnostic tests such as foot pressure measurements, detection of sensory loss in the foot and many more.

The services of the clinic include education of the patient in practical aspects of foot care, early recognition of feet at risk and treatment of various foot problems in people with diabetes.

Several studies have shown that the regular wear of therapeutic footwear, foot education, and diabetic foot care, prevents ulceration, reduces re-ulceration and amputation. Apart from these, Customized insoles are prescribed to offload high pressures from the metatarsal heads and from other areas, which helps in reducing the risk of plantar ulceration. Recently, The M.V. Hospital for Diabetes, Royapuram, introduced ¡® DIASTEP¡¯ a customized foot wear and also the manufacture of therapeutic insoles at its podiatry centre in Royapuram.

ABOUT DIASTEPTM

DIASTEPTM footwear has been uniquely designed for people with diabetes with lower risk of foot ulcers.

The footwear has been designed after two years of collaborative research efforts of

1) Central Leather Research Institute, Chennai
2) MV Hospital for Diabetes and Diabetes Research Centre, Royapuram, Chennai
3)

Novo Nordisk Education Foundation


Special design features of the footwear are as under:
  • PU sole with extra depth for more effective pressure distribution

  • The extra depth sole has a special tread for better grip and traction

  • Specially designed insole bed and foam layer for added comfort

  • Rigid counter to ensure limited joint mobility

  • Specially designed upper with leather lining for comfortable wear

  • Adjustable Velcro fasteners to take care fluctuations in foot volume

Apart from these features, a specially derived angle of slant has been provided in the sole to give the ¡°rocker¡± effect which is used to offload pressure from planter surface of the feet.

All these features, incorporated after considerable research and after testing on diabetics at MV Hospital for Diabetes, Royapuram, Chennai make DIASTEPTM footwear an essential item for people with diabetes. Constant wear of these footwear will prevent foot ulcers and foot infection.
