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.
