RCT finds lower diabetic reulceration rates with DIApedia custom orthoses

A single-blinded multicenter randomized controlled trial of shape- and pressure-based in-shoe orthoses manufactured by State College, PA-based DIApedia shows the experimental insole reduced ulcer recurrence significantly better than three standard-of-care orthoses, though the experimental insole had no significant effect on the occurrence of nonulcerative lesions, according to research published April 23 in Diabetes Care . Investigators from the University of Pennsylvania in Phila­delphia and the University of Washington in Seattle led the study, which recruited 130 patients from 11 outpatient clinics who had diabetes, neuropathy, at least one recently healed metatarsal head (MTH) ulcer, and peak barefoot plantar pressure in the area of the previous ulcer greater than 450 kPa. The patients were randomized to in­tervention with either the ex­perimental insoles (n = 66) or control insoles (n = 64)
