At Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics, we fit and customize a wide variety of quality products for Diabetic Foot Comfort and Wound Care
TRADITIONAL ACCOMMODATIVE ORTHOTICS
“L&R”™EVA Mold is uniquely molded to produce a total contact orthosis that offers a combination of shock absorption and durability. The Traditional Accommodative EVA Mold cushions the foot and is very light in weight, making it a popular choice for patients suffering foot pain from arthritis or diabetes. The orthosis (orthotic) adapts very easily to modifications customized for you by Sunshine P&O, and will comfort the hyper-sensitive foot.
“L&R”™ Plasta Mold is the original total contact Plastazote® mold, designed to protect the diabetic foot. The combination of a rigid Plastazote® base and firm Plastazote® top cover offers the patient support, balance, and accommodation. This traditional orthosis (orthotic) enables diabetic patients, including those who suffer from plantar ulcerations, diabetic foot pathology and peripheral vascular disease, to ambulate comfortably. Sunshine P&O will modify this orthotic to fit your foot perfectly.
“L&R”™ Cork Mold is an orthosis (orthotic) that offers good shock absorption while providing longitudinal arch support. The Traditional Accommodative Cork Mold, with its deep heel cup design, stabilizes the rearfoot. This total-contact orthosis (orthotic) can accommodate forefoot deformities. These orthosis are available with a variety of top covers or accommodations, and can be customized for your feet by Sunshine P&O.
DIABETIC ORTHOTIC FILLERS
“L&R”™ Prostheses – fillers will be custom fit by Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics to minimize patient discomfort and allow natural walking. They can be prescribed for partial, transmet, or Symes amputations.
“L&R”™ Diabetic Multi Density Orthotics are custom fit by Sunshine P&O to accommodate your individual foot needs- adjusting pressure and protecting the insensitive diabetic foot.
OFFLOADING DEVICES and SHOES
Pressure modulation in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, commonly referred to as “offloading,” is one of our Diabetic services. We custom fit offloading devices such as foot braces and therapeutic footwear to redistribute weight away from specific areas.
We also provide Custom and OTS (Off the Shelf) Shoes for Diabetic needs.
CROW WALKER BOOTS
A CROW boot or Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker is designed to reduce pressure and strain on the surface of the sole of the foot. It was developed for patients with severe deformity of the foot and ankle due to acute nerve damage.
At Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics, we will custom fit the boot to your need.
There are various ways to lace your shoes to alleviate pain caused by foot problems such as high arches, toe problems, heel fit, narrow or wide feet, narrow heels and wide forefoot, bumps on the top of your foot, a bone that sticks out or perhaps pain from a nerve or tendon injury. Changing the way you lace your shoes may eliminate or lessen the pain and help healing.
. The following are lacing tips from the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society.
Some General Lacing Tips
- Loosen the laces as you slip into the shoes. This prevents unnecessary stress on the eyelets and the backs of the shoes.
- Always begin at the bottom and pull the laces one set of eyelets at a time to tighten. This prevents unnecessary stress on the top eyelets and provides for a more comfortable shoe fit.
- When buying shoes, remember that those with a large number of eyelets will make it easier to adjust the laces for a custom fit.
- The conventional method of lacing, criss-cross to the top of the shoe, works best for the majority of athletes.
