Description

The combination of PORON and Plastazote provides combined cushioning and moulding properties. This unique combination consisting of Plastazote, with its proven therapeutic features and PORON, with its unique cushioning abilities gives you assurance in fabricating a long lasting product with multiple benefits for your patient. 
 
Plastazote is the most common closed cell, polyethylene foam used in the foot orthotic industry. It will adhere to most materials, it is readily washable, discourages bacteria growth and has good thermal properties. 
 
PORON is a good shock attenuator and is very durable. It is commonly used as the middle and top layer of a soft orthoses. 
 
One of the main causes for diabetic ulceration is the increase in plantar pressure on the bottom of the foot; especially, the forefoot and the heel area. Foot deformities, which are common in diabetic patients, lead to focal area of high pressure. When an abnormal focus of pressure is coupled with lack of sensation, a foot ulcer can develop. Therefore, off-loading plantar foot pressure is an important component in treating diabetic foot ulcerations.
 
Studies have shown that using PORON and Plastazote together are effective in reducing pressure and FTI (Force Time Integral) under the forefoot. Diabetic patients and patients with peripheral neuropathy will benefit hugely from insoles made from this combination as it reduces pressure and tissue damage.
