Foot protection while barefoot in the clinic

    Greetings all:

    Am interested to know if there is interest within the podiatrist community in having a disposable, uni-foot shaped paper that would adhere (without leaving residue adhesive) to the foot for the 'short walk' (between exam areas) by patients/clients in a podiatrist clinic setting--so that one can keep bare feet, or socks, clean? It would be available in two or three sizes. There is a patent for such; and, there is interest in building this product if there is an audience who could use it. First, some market research is in progress. Thanks for any comments you might offer.

    perhaps you should invent such a device, perhaps using those post-it notes, only bigger. What a good idea, I always thought there ought to be an easier way of assuring clenliness without having to wet wipe the area after every patient. Good luck in your search and if you find a product which already exists, please let me know.

    Suzanne - I actually do have a patent on this product, dubbed SoleMat, a patent issued in 2009. I am current doing some market research to determine what markets there are for the product. Thank you for your comment on this topic. Gwen

    Hi Gwen congrats on your work and good luck. The introduction forum is perhaps not the best place to discuss this topic.

    This forum is not reviewed by every one.

    Good Luck
