Walker Extension Pad For Djo Procare Maxtrax Diabetic Walker
The Walker Extension Pad, specifically designed for the Djo Procare MaxTrax Diabetic Walker, plays a crucial role in the effective treatment of plantar ulcers.
Complementary to the MaxTrax Diabetic Walker: The Walker Extension Pad is intended to be used with the MaxTrax Diabetic Walker, enhancing the capabilities and comfort of the walker.
Features and Benefits:
- Wider Foot Bed:Just like the MaxTrax Diabetic Walker, the Walker Extension Pad features a wider foot bed, which is important for accommodating the foot and ensuring proper support. This design helps to prevent additional pressure on the ulcer site.
- Malleable Uprights: The malleable uprights provide customizable support, allowing for adjustments to fit the patient's specific needs and the location of the ulcer. This feature is essential for the management of plantar ulcers.
- Tri-Laminate Insole with Impax Grid Technology: The Walker Extension Pad incorporates a tri-laminate insole with Impax Grid Technology, much like the MaxTrax Diabetic Walker. This insole design allows for the removal of foam under the ulcer, ultimately decreasing pressure at the wound site. The removal of the bottom two layers of foam around the affected areas redistributes the load away from healing ulcers.
- Preventing "Hot Spots": The top layer of foam remains in contact with the plantar surface of the foot, preventing the formation of "hot spots." This is critical for ulcer healing, as "hot spots" can lead to further complications.
The Walker Extension Pad, in conjunction with the Maxtrax Diabetic Walker, offers a comprehensive solution for the treatment of plantar ulcers, especially in diabetic patients. Its design focuses on providing support, reducing pressure, and ensuring patient comfort to facilitate effective ulcer healing and prevent complications.
