Hi Greg, I would try the silipos patial sock - Briggate medical have them in their catalogue for AU$59 - 69 Depending on length. If thats still not enough how about an insole of a plastazote/ memory foam combo as well, allowing foe shoe depth, I have also used the silipos forefoot covers over this type of area as well.
Sorry - this is off the topic a bit, but with the transmet amputees, do you find that the TA tightens over time so that the distal plantar stump region gets increased pressure? I don't see a lot of transmet amputees long term post surgery, and I believe that one of our clinics current patients is having this happen after 18 months, and I was wondering if it was common.

I have used the partial foot silicone socks made by silipose with some good results.
I often wonder when it comes to diabetic partial foot amputations whether they are often better doing a transtibial amputation rather than a nip tuck approach every couple of years which often ultimately ends up in tt ampution anyway.
