Product Description

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.

The patented construction of the wedge obtains an off-loading mechanism. The weight is notably reduced at the forefoot. 
 

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.
  • Used postoperatively after procedures to correct hallux valgus, hammer toes/tailor's bunions.
  • Forefoot ulcerations.

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. The insole can be totally removed to accommodate DARCO’s innovative Peg Assist™ (PQ Series) customizable off-loading insole.
  • 57% Reduction in Metatarsal Head Pressure.
  • Peak Pressure drops from 19PSI to 8PSI.
  • 75% Reduction in Great Toe Pressure.

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®.
