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 OrthoWedge® Off-loading Shoe is specifically designed to protect the forefoot by removing most of the pressure from the metatarsal head and digits during the weight-bearing portion of the gait cycle. For modification the insole can be taken out. The patented construction of the wedge obtains an off-loading mechanism (TPR-sole). The weight is noticeably reduced at the forefoot. Hook and loop straps make opening easy and allow a comfortable fitting.
