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.
