A liquid gel shoe insert that aims to prevent diabetes-related foot ulcers

 

An average of 300 new foot ulcers are diagnosed every day and 120 people undergo an amputation each week – 80 per cent of which are preceded by a foot ulcer.

 

The Liqua-care diabetic insole prevents foot ulcers by evenly distributing a patient’s weight, reducing peak pressure and promoting better circulation.

 

In the clinical trial, led by Duncan Stang, National Diabetes Foot Coordinator for Scotland, results showed:
Patients had a 21.5 per cent reduction in forefoot pressure
Circulation in the foot had improved by a “clinically significant” five per cent after only two weeks’ use
A two-year, post-trial check revealed that none of the group had a reported instance of ulceration.
Duncan Stang, National Diabetes Foot Coordinator for Scotland, who headed the clinical team, said: “The results that Liqua Care generated in the clinical trials were quite exceptional. To demonstrate a 21.5 per cent reduction in forefoot pressures and a clinically significant increase in transcutaneous oxygen pressure in this group of patients was very exciting.
