    I would have thought icy socks + heat = steam = serious pain?

    By the way, I accidentally found this while searching for info on small oven for heating eva and poly prior to vac moulding. What do people use?

    I was interested in '18' "..after 7 minutes the foot can be removed.." Surely this is an excellent example of biomx specialists and podiatric surgeons working together for mutual benefit!!

    The guy is an interrogator for the CIA.

    We use a Faberware convection oven. About the size of a Microwave. We got our last one on ebay.

    I think just wearing the "very cold" socks for 10 minutes would most likely get rid of most foot pain!

    I have a less dangerous, simpler and less expensive method. At the doctors direction I add adhesive felt to the underside of the insole that comes with the shoe until the desired shape is obtained. Immediate fitting; easily changed if progressive adaptation is expected and client satisfaction.
