Diabetes Wound Care8 ProductsOur diabetes wound care footwear section includes therapeutic shoes that redistribute pressure across the foot. These shoes are primarily for the benefit of diabetic patients suffering from conditions such as neuropathic ulcers or Charcot foot. When choosing diabetes wound care footwear for use by your patients, one of the important features to look for is removable insoles. These will provide you with the ability to customize pressure redistribution to suit the circumstances of a wide variety of patients. It is important to note that, since gait patterns differ among individuals, the at risk places will vary across the soles of the foot. As a result, you can analyze the gait pattern of each patient to understand their most vulnerable areas. You can then modify the removable insoles accordingly. A good diabetes wound care shoe will also offer substantial cushioning to mitigate the pressure of the patient's body weight. It will also offer straps and other features that will enable it to accommodate dressings without putting pressure on them.
Dressing & Bandage15 ProductsWe can offer you a wide collection of dressings & bandages to help you care for your patients' wounds and other similar injuries. When selecting dressing and bandage supplies, we suggest that you bear the following questions in mind as they relate to the types of patients you generally encounter at your practice: Are the wounds you treat normally wet or dry? If many of the wounds tend to be try, you should consider having a selection of dressings on hand that will donate moisture. One example of these is a hydrogel dressing. On the other hand, if many of the wounds are moist or exudative, you will need a good supply of dressings & bandages that will absorb the excess moisture. Are many of the wounds you encounter infected? If so, you will need a supply of dressings & bandages that contain anti infection agents like silver or iodine. However, bear in mind that these dressings vary greatly in their absorptive abilities. Consequently, you will need to consider the answer to the first question above together with the response to this one. Is odor an issue with many of the wounds you treat? This may be the case, for example, with wounds that are the result of conditions like cancer or pressure ulcers. In this case, a charcoal dressing will help by absorbing the malodorous gases emanating from the bacteria.
