Masaccio – woman
MASACCIO is a shoe designed for tertiary prevention of diabetic foot (in the case of a history of ulcers and Charcot 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).
The raised stabilising counters can be adjusted with side splints that provide the ankle with greater stability.
The stretchable upper without seams at friction points takes on the shape of the foot, softly accommodating any deformities (such as a hallux valgus or hammer toes) and avoiding painful rubbing and chafing.
The double-velcro fastening means that the front of the upper can be opened, making for an easy entry. It is a perfect solution for feet which are big, swollen or bandaged because the extra-large fit and adjustable volume comfortably accommodates the foot.
This piece of footwear has been designed for the insertion of a ready-made or bespoke insole (including bulky ones).
