This lecture is part of the symposium "State-of-the-art care of diabetic foot syndrome by an interdisciplinary team". The aim of this symposium is to discuss this topic from a variety of angles, combining scientific and clinical knowledge, to provide best-practice examples and practical solutions. In the second lecture of this symposium, the step is made from biomechanically designed state-of-the-art footwear, to footwear that meets these criteria and is being used. Because technically perfect footwear is still only effective when a person with diabetes wears this at all times when weight-bearing.
