Plastazote® is a thermoplastic polyethylene foam with a uniquely cross-linked construction that sits on the superior surface of the orthotic, covering the entire heel cup and extending to a desired length: mets, sulcus or toes. According to the Center for Medicare Services (CMS), it has set the standard for non-toxic, diabetic linings and insoles.

Plastazote is extremely light, washable, provides soft cushion, discourages bacterial growth and has good thermal properties. Plastazote does damage and compress easily over time.
