DARCO OrthoWedge

The DARCO OrthoWedge is clinically proven to reduce weight bearing pressure on the forefoot which promotes faster healing after surgery, trauma or when forefoot wounds or ulcerations are present.

Features and Benefits

  • 15˚ Wedge Sole effectively shifts body weight to the midfoot and heel. Reduces forefoot pressure by as much as 57%!
  • Square Toe Design acts as a bumper to protect the toes when k-wires are present and provides better Left/Right fit.
  • Ankle Strap seats foot firmly in shoe to reduce heel slippage and eliminate friction.
  • removable Forefoot Closure provides security while eliminating buckle pressure.
  • Zoned Outsole has an aggressive tread under the mid-foot where traction is needed most.
  • removable Insole features twice the padding of standard insoles and can be modified as needed. Insole can be totally removed to accommodate DARCO's OSSovative Peg Assist customizable off-loading insole.
  • 57% Reduction in Met Head Pressure
  • Peak Pressure drops from 19PSI to 8PSI
  • 75% Reduction in Great Toe Pressure
  • Peak Pressure drops from 17PSI to 4PSI

Indications

  • Post Surgical healing
  • Forefoot trauma
  • Wounds or ulcerations present under metatarsal heads and toes.
  • Any situation that requires a pressure off-load of the forefoot.

A Time Tested Option

Incidences of diabetes are at an all time high with the level of newly reported cases up a staggering 48% in the last 10 years*. In many cases, the resulting neuropathic limbs mean that diabetic ulcers on the feet are a distinct and very dangerous possibility. Since pressure and abrasion are the enemies of wound care, the OrthoWedge is designed to naturally reduce the number of steps taken by the patient while still allowing them to ambulate when necessary. TheDARCO OrthoWedge has been tested under fire in both clinical and real world settings and continues to produce outstanding results. When forefoot off-loading is required to allow wounds/ulcerations under the metatarsal heads and toes to heal, nothing beats the OrthoWedge.

Need Targeted Off-Loading? Add a Peg-Assist Insole

When used alone, the OrthoWedge Healing Shoe reduces forefoot pressure by as much as 57% and peak pressure is reduced by as much as 75% under the Great Toe! But when combined with our OSSovative PQ Series Peg-Assistcustomizable insole you can achieve astounding localized pressure relief without the risk of edge abrasion or ring edema present in other off-loading methods.

The Peg-Assist insole's Poron cover minimizes friction while the closed cell Platazote layer absorbs shock and comfortably conforms to the foot.
