Therapeutic Shoes DIABETES

for the Treatment at Diabetic Foot Syndrome

Diabetes mellitus is a disease that involves various symptoms and secondary diseases. One of the possible impacts is the Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS). The wound's ability to heal is often impaired due to nerve damages and circulatory disorders. It is crucial to protect the feet from any kind of pressure points or even the smallest injuries.

The DIABETES therapeutic shoes by FIOR & GENTZ are especially well suited for the treatment of feet with diabetic foot syndrome. All shoe models can be washed at 40°C and are equipped with breathable upper material. A reinforced heel cap provides support and comfortable stability. You can find further tips for the daily use of therapeutic shoes on the page Handling the Shoe in Daily Life.
