New methods for evaluating physical and thermal comfort properties of orthotic materials used in insoles for patients with diabetes

Wai Ting Lo, et al.

This article describes new approaches in the evaluation of shearing and thermal comfort properties of orthotic insoles for patients with diabetes. In addition, a novel performance index that combines various material test results is proposed to quantify the overall performance of the insole materials. Practitioners can use the performance index to better understand the properties and performance of various insole materials, thus prescribing suitable orthotic insoles for patients with diabetic foot.
