High Risk Foot
Mason Grogan Medical supports Podiatrists, Pedorthists, Orthotists and Orthotic Laboratories by supplying specialist materials and providing in-depth technical advice for the treatment of patients with high risk foot. Devices designed to prevent ulceration in the diabetic patient should act to reduce those forces that lead to ulceration, namely pressure and shear. Preventing foot ulceration is a critical aspect of the overall treatment of diabetic patients. Ulcer prevention includes patient education, regular screening, use of proper shoes and socks, palliative care as needed and the use of orthotic devices specifically designed to reduce those forces that are likely to lead to ulceration.
