Riecken's Orthotic Laboratory, of Evansville, Indiana, is offering shoe insoles custom-designed to help reduce foot ulcers. The Butterfly inserts are made with a gel that "moves, flexes and can flow with the foot's movements," says Carl Riecken, C.Ped, OST, president of Riecken's Orthotic Laboratory. The substance, "flesh-like in consistency," provides a "positive, shock-absorbing foundation" that molds to fit the shape of a person's foot. The smooth surface reduces friction and effectively helps decrease callus build-up, according to the press release.
Inserts are available in sizes ranging from a woman's size 5 to a man's size 14. Riecken's can be contacted by phone at (812) 476-8006; on the Web at www.footcomfortworld.com (Dead link: 8/2010); or by mail at 5115 Oak Grove Road, Evansville, Indiana 47715.
