The Ebi footwear range is the only footwear available on the market, especially designed to be worn in the first few days after surgery and throughout the post-operative period
Traditionally after foot surgery, a semi-open post-operative shoe is worn for the first few weeks, but it is not used throughout the whole post-operative period, since it does not allow for spontaneous, natural walking movement.
Therefore, a need was felt to dedicate more attention to this delicate period after foot surgery, and the result is the WALK shoe with DOUBLE FIT technology.
There are many advantages and benefits for the patient, thanks to the patented DOUBLE FIT:
- Wearing a shoe that combines the ability to hold and support a foot that is still swollen, bandaged and painful, with a comfortable fit and a pleasing, modern design.
- Being able to wear the same shoe from the day of the operation through to the end of convalescence, meaning there is no need to purchase another shoe to replace the classic post-op shoe around two weeks later.
- Wearing the same type of shoe on each foot means that walking will be better balanced and correct, with a better distribution of body weight and undeniable benefits for the back, hips and legs.
- Increased mental wellbeing, given that the patient can immediately wear a pair of shoes that are completely similar to those they wear every day. And this is a purchase that can continue to be worn in the future, like any other pair of sports shoes.
New DOUBLE FIT technology in fact includes the use of technical materials that protect the treated area of the foot, making walking possible. This is thanks to a memory foam material that moulds to the pressure of the foot and follows the shape of any post-op dressings.
We have patented quick foot entry with a double zip that opens from the top to the toe, making it quicker and easier to slip on, even with the foot bandaged.
To improve foot conditioning, we have used a special ALLUMINION membrane to keep the foot at a constant temperature.
The sole has a vulcanised double band, applied by hand to allow elasticity with all the softness of a glove compared to normal footwear with rubber sole, which is much stiffer and not very elastic.
The DOUBLE FIT patent includes the use of a double sole (insole 1 and insole 2) to be used in WALK post-op footwear during the different stages of convalescence.
For the early post-op period, the operated foot does not include the use of any insole, while the non-operated foot will use the insole 1. After an initial period, we can insert insole 1 for the operated foot, for a wider, comfier fit on both feet while waiting for the operated foot to become less swollen until it is possible to insert insole 2 into both shoes. The feet will be on the same divisional plane meaning that walking will be comfortable and stress free, with no rubbing or pinching.
