OrthoWedge® Off-loading Shoe


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. Velcro straps make opening easy and allow a comfortable fitting.

Features and Benefits

  • 15˚ Wedge Sole effectively shifts body weight to the midfoot and heel. Reduces forefoot pressure by as much as 57%.
  • Square Toe Design acts as a bumper to protect the toes when K-wires are present and provides better left / right fit.
  • Ankle Strap seats foot firmly in shoe to reduce heel slippage and eliminate friction.
  • Removable Forefoot Closure provides security while eliminating buckle pressure.
  • Zoned Outsole has an aggressive tread under the mid-foot where traction is needed most.
  •  Removable Insole features twice the padding of standard insoles and can be modified as needed. Insole can be totally removed to accommodate DARCO’s innovative PegAssist™ customizable off-loading insole.  TwinShoe optional available for height adjustment.
