Safeguarding the client, promoting professional foot health

The APM approved products are granted to products found to promote good foot health. The approved products consist of shoes, socks, insoles, materials, equipment, therapeutic products such as lotions, deodorizers, wound care treatments, regulated medical devices, and medicines. Approved products may be available over the counter or ask your podiatrist for further details.
