The new off-loading shoe provides the balance of stability and the reduction of pressure on the foot following foot surgery.

The Relief Dual® innovations revolutionize the "off-loading" technology. This newly designed "Dual" sole combines the benefits of a EVA shock absorbing material and the anti-slip features of rubber; for a ground-breaking step in the post-operative treatment for foot care.

In addition, through these improvements we've optimized the rolling characteristics of the shoe.

Breaking from convention, we've increased the surface area of the rigid shank to the entire sole area; maximizing pressure re-distribution while effectively immobilizing the metatarsophalangeal joint I & V (MTP) and the distal interphalangeal joint I & V (DIP).

On the one hand an alternative to a walker and, on the other, a backing splint

The Relief Dual® including Relief Contour Insole creates the perfect basis for the Relief Insert® Walker.
