How Are Diabetic Boots Different From Regular, Standard Walkers?
Diabetic boots are specially designed with different soles to reduce the contact pressure underneath your foot. Individual pegs can be removed to unload the pressure that would normally hit the injured area thus allowing for the body to heal the ulcer. A diabetic walker is easier to apply than a total contact cast and reduces shear forces that disrupt your body's ability to successfully heel wound on your foot. With a healthy foot, the sole can minimize the formation of hot spots. In a foot with an active wound, the sole can mean the difference between non-healing and actively healing ulcers. Got lots of dressings? - no worries. Every diabetic boot can accommodate dressings and bandages without any difficulty.
