Malmoe – man
MALMOE is a closed-heel sandal recommended for tertiary prevention of diabetic foot (in the case of a history of ulcers and Charcot foot) as well as the treatment of rheumatic foot with serious deformities. It was devised for patients who need to reduce pressure on the sole of the foot.
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, delivering added comfort and avoiding any painful rubbing.
The double-velcro fastening makes it easy to open the front of the sandal completely, making it extremely practical to wear. The extra-large fit and adjustable internal volume make MALMOE suitable for patients with big, bandaged, swollen or sore feet.
The sandal has been designed for the insertion of a ready-made or bespoke insole (including bulky ones).
