According to a new study from University of Benin many patients with diabetes fall short on foot care and foot wear.
Failure to perform recommended foot care and wearing inappropriate footwear can set diabetes patients up for foot ulcers.
Ulcers are painful and potentially serious.
They can sometimes lead to amputation.
Uno Momento !
One Moment was inspired by indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest , who painted the soles of their feet with natural latex for protection.Designed by Spain’s Figtree Factory Studios for the active lifestyle , the skintight slip-on is ergonomic, ventilated, and ultra-compact when compressed.These shoes look sprayed-on to you, you’re not far off the mark.
One Moment is made from 100 percent biodegradable plant-based plastic, so you won’t worry about clogging up the landfill with your old shoes.
And just like latex coatings that the Amazonian native used, your OneMoment will also return to the environment, degrading at least 80 percent of the way after six months in the ground
Each pair cost only €5-€7.
