This even distribution of weight reduces the pressure in high-risk areas for ulceration and protects anesthetic feet. MCR is now used by diabetics also to reduce complications due to plantar ulcers.

The properties of softness and thickness of the Micro Cellular Rubber are crucial to its function of distributing weight evenly on the sole of the foot while walking. Sri Narayani Hospital supplies MCR chappals.
