Improve Offloading With The FORS Insole!

You'd think after 30 years medical practitioners would agree on how to reduce pressure on a wound... They don't.  Most patients with plantar diabetic foot ulcers don't receive proven effective off-loading therapy.6

  • Total contact casting (TCC) is often viewed as the"gold standard" for offloading of diabetic foot ulcers and yet is rarely used. The reasons most often cited for TCC not being selected is that it is "impractical" for patients and/or physicians, not accepted by patients, or contraindicated.

  • What do physicians actually prescribe?  The answer is a "hodge-podge" of approaches with little consistency among health care practitioners, and no consensus on what actually works...UNTIL NOW!

Introducing a new standard in offloading - the FORS™ Insole!




What Makes the FORS Insole Different?

1).  No Edge Effect

  • The patented design of FORS moderates pressure on edges of offloaded areas.  It has long been established that shifting pressure to the edges can cause neuropathic ulcers to increase in size.10
  • In a recent peer-reviewed study, NO increased edge pressure was observed with FORS, whereas significantly increased edge pressure was observed in the market leading product1.
  • FORS has been repeatedly proven effective for treating plantar diabetic foot ulcers in multiple evaluations by leading podiatrists.1,3,4,5
  • The configuration of fabric and foam layers prevents collapse and bottoming out (fabric / foam / fabric / foam)
  • Even after plug removal, there are 3 remaining protective layers over the ulcer area (fabric / foam / fabric).
  • Clinicians around the country are seeing improved healing times using FORS.  Don't you think your patients deserve the best offloading too?


2).  Last Up to 3x Longer

3). Less Likely to Bottom Out


  • The quality material in the FORS not only holds out better over time, but is also less likely to bottom out for heavier patients


4). Plugs Won't Shift or Fall Out


  • Another problem with competitor insoles is that plugs shift and fall out over time
  • Shifting plugs means the offloading distribution changes over time, and is not the same as at the time of fitting
  • FORS plugs are permanent and will not fall out or shift, yet they can be removed easily at time of fitting
  • The result is an insole that maintains its offloading the same as at time of fitting


5). Premium Performance and Durability


  • FORS insoles are made of premium material in Italy by Saluber - a name podiatrists trust
  • Increased performance and durability means your patients are more likely to heal
  • Don't your patients deserve FORS?
