Are your shoes putting the pressure on? This is a perfect product to bring you relief and comfort in those pressured areas of the feet. FELT CHIROPODY PADDING can bring you relief and comfort in pressured areas. You can use it to deflect pressure from a lesion e.g. corns and callous or to alter foot function. Our semi-compressed felt padding is white with hypo-allergenic (Hapla) backing and is hygroscopic i.e. it absorbs perspiration therefore, keeping the area dry.
Before use, ensure the feet are clean and dry. Using sharp scissors, cut the felt can to shape around a painful area to relieve pressure and alleviate discomfort. It is primarily used to deflect pressure from the lesion e.g. away from corns and painful callous. Using a simple crescent shape works well. Cut to size and shape required then peel off the paper backing and apply padding to the intended site. For extra security, the padding can also be held in place by a conforming adhesive bandage such as Mefix - see other items listed.
The adhesive is low allergy (hypo-allergenic) but do not leave the padding in situ too long. If you have diabetes or problems with your circulation, ask your Podiatrist/Chiropodist before using this product. If irritation or discomfort occurs, discontinue use immediately and seek medical advice.
Care must be taken when removing our self-adhesive padding from fragile older skin. If symptoms persist seek advice from a Podiatrist/Chiropodist.
Most Chiropodists / Podiatrists use the 5mm depth padding where there is a choice in depth. However, the patient should be guided by how much room there is in their shoe i.e. not a great deal of room opt for the 2mm depth but obviously if you can get away with 5mm or 7mm that would be the optimum in most cases.
