Diabetic Insoles

The prevalence of diabetes is on the rise globally, with projections indicating an increase from 285 million to 439 million cases by 2030. India, in particular, is experiencing a significant surge in diabetes cases, currently standing at 77 million individuals, and this number continues to grow. Recent research conducted on a sample of 718 people revealed that 47% of individuals aged 35 to 45 are diabetic. Predictions from diabetic forums suggest that by 2030, the highest number of diabetic cases will be concentrated in India, China, and the USA. Diabetes primarily affects three vital organs: the kidneys, retina, and feet.

In India, diabetic foot complications are a prevalent issue, impacting approximately 15% of people with diabetes (Source: Journal of Foot and Ankle Research). Unfortunately, these complications are often diagnosed at later stages, leading to increased risks and unfavorable outcomes (Source: Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care). Diabetic foot problems can have severe consequences, and while recent medical advancements have improved our ability to save lower limbs, there's still a significant gap in preventive measures.

To address this issue, there is a need to develop custom foot insoles tailored to the unique characteristics of each individual's plantar surface. Since pressure points on the foot vary from person to person, standard insoles are insufficient. The goal is to create custom insoles that distribute pressure evenly across the plantar surface, reducing the risk of amputation for diabetic patients. This requires a comprehensive study of the individual's condition and a personalized, body-fitted customization of the insole to match the contours of their foot sole.

What causes conditions in a diabetic foot?

Ill-fitting shoes, whether too small, too tight, or too big, can cause foot ulcers, calluses, and other problems. They rub and squeeze your feet, creating sores in those areas.


What can be done?

Monitor your diabetes:  It's crucial to control your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels if you have diabetes. Keeping them close to normal can prevent foot problems. Issues can worsen rapidly, so address them quickly and focus on prevention.

Wear Custom Footwear: Choose the right shoes or sandals with custom insoles that provide space for your toes and protect against rubbing and friction. Proper footwear is essential for diabetic foot care. At “PADA” based on the pressure points, ulcers and any diabetic related issues, the insoles are custom made such that it offloads pressure and overcome issues in foot related to insoles, and aids in better healing and reduce ulcers.
