Interested in diabetic footwear?

One in four Canadians with diabetes will develop potentially serious foot problems related to the disease. However, proper footwear from Elio`s can help diabetic patients in Niagara avoid unnecessary complications.

Diabetic footwear is commonly known as extra depth or therapeutic shoes. The specially designed shoes are made to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics with co-existing foot disease. People with decreased feeling in their feet may have a false sense of security as to how much at risk their feet actually are.  The shoes for diabetics must also be equipped with a removable orthotic. Foot orthotics are devices such as shoe inserts, arch supports, or shoe fillers such as lifts, wedges and heels. Footwear for diabetics and customized insoles work together as a preventative system to help diabetics avoid foot injuries and improve mobility.
