OrthoWedge® Off-loading Shoe

£21.00 incl. VAT

The OrthoWedge® Healing Shoe is specifically designed to protect the forefoot by reducing the pressure from the metatarsal head and digits during the weight-bearing portion of the gait cycle. (Sold individually) Please note that the shoes cannot be worn to drive in due to the cut out profile of the sole. You will also adopt a very different walking regime whilst wearing this shoe (a more flat footed strike action with the ground will result during the wearing of this device.)  You cannot wear 2 x of these shoes at the same time due to their cut-out design.   

Description

The OrthoWedge® Healing Shoe is specifically designed to protect the forefoot by reducing the pressure from the metatarsal head and digits during the weight-bearing portion of the gait cycle. The patented design of the shoe provides an off-loading mechanism which allows for faster healing and has a square toe design offering a better fit by eliminating toe overhang.

For added off-loading, the removable Insole can be taken out and fitted with a customised PegAssist® Insole. The main strapless fastening system can be removed and rotated to provide a left or right overlap with an additional ankle strap to give further comfortable fitting.
