PRAISE FOR THE FORS-15 INSOLE

"The FORS insole is very cost effective and provides superior plantar offloading as compared with other available shoe-based systems. Unlike the TCC which requires significant training and expertise before it can be applied and a significant time commitment for our clinicians, the FORS insole can easily be modified for our patients by any of the clinic personnel with only minimal training and takes only minutes to apply.  In an independent study in our clinic the FORS insole was demonstrated to remove significant pressure from areas of ulceration. Coupled with a non-removable dressing technique such as the Rader Football or the Felted Foam Dressing the FORS insole in a rocker soled cam boot or surgical shoe can be used as a cost effective, proven first-line therapy for many of the plantar wounds we encounter.  A single FORS insole will typically last long enough to be used through wound closure to the transition to a patient’s final footwear. The FORS insole reduces the need for clinicians to replace it with other offloading devices. Considering the fact that in the Philadelphia area the reimbursement for applying and removing many of the commercially available TCCs only allow for approximately $25 in net revenue, the single expense FORS insole may allow clinicians to significantly reduce expenses, and still achieve similar wound healing outcomes.”     James McGuire, DPM, PT, L.Ped (Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine)

"As a podiatrist working in a busy hospital-based wound care center, I have recently incorporated the use of the FORS-15 insole as a pressure reduction option in treating my patients with plantar foot wounds. This newly available insole, which is made of durable high-quality lightweight materials, is easily customizable and can be used inside a rocker-bottom surgical shoe or a rigid walking boot.  When used in conjunction with utilization of a “team approach” and use of modern wound care techniques, I have found it to be a highly cost-effective option for plantar pressure reduction. It has shown to dramatically reduce the severity of wounds, decrease healing times, and reduce amputation rates."     Payam Rafat, DPM, AACFAS, C.Ped., COF  (Montefiore Medical Center, Mount Vernon, NY)

"The FORSTM-15 insole is a viable, cost-effective, highly durable, and easy-to-use alternative to the total contact cast offloading system that should be seriously considered when TCC is contraindicated, impractical, or when patient compliance is a concern. Considering that 20% of ulcers reoccur within 90 days, consideration should also be given to using the FORSTM-15 insole as a transitional method of treatment out of the total contact cast until patients are fitted for their final diabetic shoes."
