Developed by podiatrist Dr. Robert Spalding, FootJelly looks to be the extra hand in footcare. 

Many times when health professionals prescribe, suggest or highly recommend topical prescription or OTC foot care products to manage serious foot conditions for high or at-risk patients like those with diabetes, poor circulation and lack of sensation or neuropathy, some patients may not be able to physically comply with instructions. 

FootJelly can help anyone, not just those with high risk problems. Many people simply cannot reach or even see their feet to properly care for their feet. When prescribing a topical cream or recommending a lotion, liquid or foam many patients will go buy the product. Due to limited mobility from previous surgeries, arthritis of the spine or many metabolic diseases, patients regrettably avoid the daily application process. These unfortunate conditions severely restricts the necessary daily foot care that can prevent serious consequences. Compliance with accomplishing daily foot care becomes a challenge. 

"When I became a diabetic with neuropathy suddenly, I had to experience what my patients go through on a daily basis to take care of my feet," shares Dr. Spaulding. "I found out through becoming a 68 y/o diabetic that rubbing your own feet with preventative topical medications is an effort that I wanted to make more pleasant, effortless and something one would look forward to as part of their activities of daily living (ADL). This is why I invented FootJelly."

There are many lotions, creams and foam application devices but even those require upper body dexterity or range of motion (ROM) to reach the feet. Many individuals live alone and have no one to help them for basic foot care and have severe limitations. Everyone, especially high-risk clients or patients with limited mobility, can use FootJelly, the extra hand with foot care whether you are aware of that or not.

  • FootJelly can also be used in any pedicure services to help massage the feet during soaking or in addition to a dry or wet pedicure.
  • FootJelly can be completely washed and disinfected with Hypochlorous Acid between clients if used in additive pedicure services.
  • FootJelly can be used to exercise the toes for temporary relief of neuropathy pain, hammer toe pain, foot spasms, balance therapy and other developing features

No matter what cream, lotion, spray liquids, soaks or foam you prefer, or doctor recommended, FootJelly may help those lotions and other products penetrate and contact the plantar foot skin by gravity, your body weight and the strength of your leg muscles with much less effort than your hands. FootJelly warms up your product to make the delivery process more pleasurable, have better penetration and provides the protective benefit of silicone.
