The Bledsoe Conformer Diabetic Boot features a fully enclosed thick, but breathable foam cocoon attached to a unique auto-molding innersole which embeds into a specially designed pre-molded mid-sole insert in an aluminum shelled walking boot. This unique Automold™ Dual Density foot-bed is designed to evenly distribute body weight across the entire bottom surface of the foot, and up to one inch high on all sides of the foot.
The auto-molding innersole features a skinned, cleanable smooth surface that molds itself to the foot shape. The pre-molded mid-sole is specially designed to enhance perimeter and side loading better than a total contact cast. The fully enclosed cocoon completely encases the foot and lower leg to provide maximum protection.
Studies show the Conformer distributes pressure to the sides of the foot thereby reducing peak pressure on the bottom by 30%, on average, compared to a total contact cast.
This device is indicated to replace total contact casting for the treatment of ulcerative or pre-ulcerative conditions of the bottom of the foot. It is also indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe plantar fasciitis or other foot conditions that would benefit from a more even distribution of body weight on the sole of the foot.
This device is contraindicated where severe foot deformities cause the shape of the foot not to fit within the confines of a boot shell that is up to one size larger than the proper size shown on the Ordering Information chart.
