Diabetic shoe programs include the Diabetic Shoe Source program and the Ankle & Foot Care Centers program. Another diabetic shoe program is the New Hope Prosthetics & Orthotics program.
Diabetic shoe programs are aimed at helping people with diabetes cope with diabetic neuropathy which causes numbness in the feet. Diabetic shoe programs offer special shoes to protect against foot ulcerations and calluses for people with diabetes.
The Diabetic Shoe Source program evaluates the feet of people with diabetes and determines the type of shoe that matches that person's lifestyle and specific foot conditions. The Ankle & Foot Care Centers program has 20 locations in the United States and specializes in advising patients with diabetes about foot care such as checking feet for irregularities and moisturizing feet to avoid cracking skin.
