P-Cell® is a closed cell EVA foam that has been tested by independent research companies against Plastazote® for abrasion, coefficient of friction, moisture deflection, durability and tensile strength.
P-Cell® was proven to be superior to Plastazote® in each and every test. In fact, after walking for 7½ miles on P-Cell®, there was less "pack-down" than a brand new piece of Plastazote® run through an identical test!

P-CELL® vs PLASTAZOTE®: According to independent testing through SATRA, Artech, and the SGS U.S. Testing company, P-Cell® is a superior product to Plastazote®.
Abrasion: A less abrasive insole can help protect the diabetic. The more abrasive the surface of the material, the more likely the skin will become irritated, which may result in blistering or ulcerations. P-Cell® is a smooth, closed cell product which does not hurt the skin.
