The DH Offloading Walker utilizes a short leg walker in conjunction with a patented pressure relief insole to assist in the healing of plantar ulcers.
The plantar insole allows effective pressure relief and shear reduction. Pressure relief is easily created by the removal of numerous independent shock-absorbing hexagons.
This easily allows the insole to accommodate various sizes, shapes and numbers of ulcers. It is believed the utilization of the short leg walker helps reduce shear by fixing the ankle at 90 degrees and incorporating a rocker bottom sole.
This off-the-shelf product can be easier to apply than many other methods and save time and money when treating mild to moderate ulcers.
