GIOTTO 15 is a shoe designed for tertiary prevention of the diabetic foot and was built to alleviate pressure on the sole of the foot. It is suitable for anyone with a history of ulcers or who has undergone amputations (this includes Charcot foot) and is also recommended for patients suffering from rheumatism and with serious deformities.
The rigid biomechanical outsole limits stress on the joints of the foot whilst the wearer is walking and significantly reduces pressure peaks on the forefoot, contributing to a proper distribution of pressure. The rigid outsole reduces the risk of re-ulceration in diabetic patients by over 50% (tests conducted by the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli), University of Bologna). With its “boat”-shaped design, it contributes to the push-off stage and helps the foot to roll more easily.
The heat-moldable upper can be adapted by specialists so it permanently offloads pressure and caters for any deformities of the foot (e.g. hallux valgus and hammer toe), delivering added comfort and avoiding any painful rubbing.
The extra-large fit is ideal for patients with big feet, grave deformities, swelling or bandaging.
This piece of footwear has been designed for the insertion of a ready-made or bespoke insole (including bulky ones).
