Footlogics Canada Introduces a Revolutionary New Product for Diabetics, the Sensi Diabetic Over-the-Counter Foot Orthotic
Date:7/24/2013

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in Canada and according to the Canadian Diabetes Association, "There are more than 9 million people afflicted with diabetes or pre-diabetes,” and many of these people will develop foot problems related to this illness. Footlogics recognized this growing problem and developed the Sensi Diabetic orthotic.

Diabetic foot conditions that can arise from a combination of causes include poor circulation and neuropathy, which is an insensitivity or loss of feeling to pain, heat and or cold. If these minor injuries are left untreated, complications can occur and may lead to ulceration and possible amputation of the digits or even the foot. Neuropathy can also cause deformations such as bunions, Charcot Foot and hammer toes. The Footlogics Sensi Diabetic orthotic is designed to reduce pressure and friction, support the foot and provide cushioning. These features help reduce the chance of developing foot injuries and ulcerations as a result of excess pressure and friction.

The Sensi features a Plastazote® non-allergenic top cover, an anatomical arch support, deep stabilizing heel cup as well as metatarsal support. The flexible and supportive PU base features shock-absorbing gel pads under the heel and forefoot that are ideal for diabetic’s sensitive feet.

Plastazote® has been the trusted choice of medical professional as a top cover for custom diabetic orthotics for over 30 years. Footlogics has used this industry standard as the top layer for the Sensi over-the-counter Diabetic orthotics. Plastazote®’s cushioning properties lessen the chance of developing foot injuries and ulceration.

Footlogics Sensi over-the-counter orthotic insoles are ergonomically constructed to reduce pressure and friction while still providing biomechanical support and reducing excess pronation. The shape of the insole matches the plantar surface of the foot, allowing for cushioning and support along its entire length, evenly distributing the forces of walking to protect sensitive areas from excess pressure.

Lorna Boyle, president of Footlogics Canada says: “The Footlogics Sensi orthotic isn’t just limited to people living with Diabetes. It can also be beneficial for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation as well as the elderly who may need more cushioning. The Sensi is also ideal for people who are recovering from minor injuries, post-surgical or wound care. Footlogics truly makes orthotics for everyone.”
