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. The 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 innovative PQ Series Peg-Assist™ customizable 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® Cushioning cover minimizes friction while the closed cell Platazote® layer absorbs shock and comfortably conforms to the foot.

  • Reduces forefoot pressure by as much as 57%!
  • Square-toe design acts as a bumper to protect the toes.
  • Ankle strap seats foot firmly in shoe to reduce heel slippage and eliminate friction.
  • Removable forefoot closure eliminates buckle pressure.
  • Zoned outsole has an aggressive tread under the midfoot.
  • EVA insole features twice the padding of standard insoles and can be modified as needed.
