A recent audit of Primary Care Trusts in the UK2 demonstrated that the absence of properly designed medical footwear in the community results in 66% of patients wearing footwear which is inappropriate for their condition.  This results in a significantly higher rate of foot ulcer recurrence, particularly in the diabetic community, as well as a significant increase in the number of falls. 

Kerraped comes as a single shoe which can be worn on either foot.
