CushionZ: "The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded MedEfficiency additional Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Grant Funding to develop a shoe and insert system designed specifically for diabetic patients. This system is formulated to offer a simplified, more effective option for preventive footwear, making time and economic sense for patients and practitioners alike. By simplifying the process of providing these shoes and inserts we expect an increase in availability to patients directly through medical providers and a corresponding improvement in their outcomes. MedEfficiency's shoe and insert system is in development and expected to be available for sale in 2005."

Update: According to a MedEfficiency spokesperson, the CushionZ shoe is still in the development phase of the project. In 2005, the company plans to apply for NIH Level 2 funding. A typical funding cycle is approximately 8 months. So, based on this new information, the CushionZ will not be available for sale next year.
