Orthopedic shoes are shoes designed for patients with disease or malformation of the feet. One big group is patients with diabetes, who suffer from nerve damage and decreased circulation. This will lead to severe wounds and often amputation.
Therefore, it is important to provide these patients with shoes that provide support, have a good grip, and are stable so they do not stumble due to reduced nerve and muscle function. At the same time, the shoes need to be roomy to provide ventilation and allow wounds to heal. VPECS plays an integral part in providing grip, maintaining blood flow, and reducing nerve pressure in orthopedic shoes.
