A Closer Look at a Novel Device for Foot Offloading

Inspiring adherence to limited weight-bearing restrictions is a challenging and constant frustration for medical providers. Studies have shown up to an 88 percent nonadherence rate with limited weight-bearing restrictions, even after appropriate patient education.1 The complexities of life including, but not limited to, work, family, and physical capabilities contribute to difficulties in sustaining a limited weight-bearing status for an extended period. Not adhering to prescribed treatment plans may lead to healing complications, increased burden on the medical system, a compensatory gait—which can cause other injuries—frustration between patients and providers, as well as mental and emotional consequences. Although there are numerous offloading devices on the market, we have observed persistent challenges that demonstrate the continued need for an optimal offloading device.
