PegAssist Offloading Insole
The PQ Series Darco PegAssist™ insole is a versatile peg insole for the HeelWedge™, OrthoWedge® and APB™ wound care shoes. Its removable pegs permit localized relief of pressure and its stabilizer board supports the pegs and keeps them from collapsing. The PTQ Series Darco PegAssist™insole is a similar product that goes with the Square-Toe MedSurg™ Shoe.
The Darco PegAssist™ is an off loading system that comprises an insole with a removable-peg multi-indication chassis. The role of the chassis is to effectively off-load the plantar region of the foot. This will promote healing after surgery or when wounds from other causes (diabetic foot ulcerations, for example) are present.
The PTQ Series PegAssist™ Insole is for use with the MedSurg™ Shoe. It represents an economical wound care system that will help to significantly reduce postoperative pressure.
The system comes with a Stabilizer board, the purpose of which is to maintain product integrity.
Sizes for the unisex PQ model are X-Small, Small, Medium, large and X-Large. The sizes for the PTQ are Small, Medium and Large for Women and Small, Medium, Large & X-Large for Men. Please follow the instructions under the Sizing tab on this page to determine your appropriate size.
