The Heelwedge Heel Off-Loading Shoe from Darco is clinically proven to offload pressure by over 26% from the heel by shifting weight to the mid and forefoot to promote faster healing after surgery, trauma or when wounds or ulcerations are present on the heel.
The square-toe design offers more space for bandage material, provides selective off-loading of heel pressure that is displaced to the midfoot.
The modified rocker bottom encourages a smooth toe-off while maintaining a stable mid-foot base and the unique forefoot closure provides uniform security without the pressure points of buckles and straps.
The ankle strap seats the foot firmly in the sole and eliminates heel friction and the cloth toe protector keeps toes warm and dressings clean and dry.
Can be worn on the left or right foot.
