Design and Development of Shoe Insole for Diabetic Patients
In recent years, terms like ‘going green’ and ‘eco-friendly’ have become buzz words on talk shows, commercials and product making. Likewise we have brought our product under the shadow of eco-friendly and disposable. Our main product is shoe insole for diabetic patients. The shoe insole holds the natural products such as bamboo and chitosan. Bamboo fibre being a biodegradable textile material has many antibacterial qualities. Above that chitosan has both antibacterial and antimicrobic performance inhibiting bacteria’s growth. Bamboo fibre is converted into web using carding machine. The web obtained is fed for needle punching. The non-woven material is made to dry and taken out for testing. The specimen undergoes follows anti-bacterial test, wound pathogen test and the result gave good activity towards bacteria and organism like staphylococcus aureus, klebsiella and pseudomonas. Since it is a use and throw material, it need not have to support sufficient mechanical properties.
