For Diabetic Footwear in Melbourne
Shoes designed for diabetics in the first instance have very few seams, stitching, rough edges ,they are soft and smooth and generally minimize the likelihood or risk of trauma to the foot caused by the shoe. In the second instance, the diabetic shoe is deep enough, often termed “ extra depth” to accommodate the diabetic foot where swelling or edema is a factor over the course of the day. In general terms, the foot is smaller at the start of the day when you put your shoes on and larger at night when you take your shoes off. For a diabetic, a diabetic shoe design should enable a shoe to adjust accordingly and be deep enough to accommodate a diabetic insert.
For Falls Prevention Footwear in Melbourne
From The Australian Government's Department of Health and Ageing please note the following:
What you can do:
- See a podiatrist or doctor if you have painful or swollen feet, tingling or pins and needles in your feet or if you have any changes in the shape of your feet (for example, bunions).
- Choose comfortable, firm-fitting, flat shoes with a low broad heel and soles that grip (see picture).
- Don’t wear poorly fitted slippers or walk in socks.
- If you have difficulty finding suitable

For Orthopaedic Footwear in Melbourne
Orthopaedic Shoes are specially designed shoes that provide support and pain relief for people suffering with some type of pain in the legs, ankles, or feet. Historically, the shoes are designed with an eye more toward function than fashion. While many people assume that only the elderly wear medical shoes of this type, the fact is that the orthopaedic shoe is worn by people of all ages.
Generally, the main function of orthopaedic shoes is to provide more support for the feet and ankles than is accomplished by basic footwear. The design of the shoes offers relief for such conditions as bunions, hammertoe, edema or fallen arches etc.
In general, wearing orthopedic shoes is a good idea whenever there is any type of health issue that makes it painful to walk. This includes foot conditions that make wearing basic off the shelf shoes uncomfortable, or situations where walking in regular shoes causes fatigue and pain in the muscles or bones of the legs. Because people of all ages and genders can experience pain of this type, there are shoes designed for children and adults alike.
FitnWellFootwear would like the opportunity to solve your Footwear problems and enable you to experience, safe, comfortable, supporting and stable Footwear.
