CROW (Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker) is a cross between an ankle-foot orthosis and a custom boot designed to provide total contact for weight distribution. Its bi-valve design provides a total contact fit over your shin, calf, and foot. It has soft padding on the inside, and the sole is covered with a material like shoe soling. It is not worn with a shoe. Due to the limited movement within the boot is sometimes required to help unload an ulcer and promote healing. They may also be used post operatively when a standard fracture boot is not fit for purpose.
CROW Boots are indicated for:
- Non healing Diabetic ulcers
- Charcot foot
These shoes are not side specific and are generally wider and longer than a standard shoe to allow for bulky dressing post operatively or for dressing for a wound or wounds. They have a have a wide Velcro forefoot closure to allow for maximum adjustment.
Wedged shoes – designed to reduce forefoot loading by shifting weight to the mid and rear foot such as the Remedy Pro Shoe from DJO.
Offloading footwear shoes – designed to provide pressure redistribution or offloading for patients at-risk for diabetic foot conditions such as neuropathic ulcers and Charcot foot.
Post-Operative Shoes – designed to be lightweight, universal in fit, wide, and accommodating to promote healing post operatively.
