Important News: Diabetics

The unsuccessful healing of foot wounds in diabetic patients can often be attributed to wound disturbance. Patients may feel the need to step on the wounded foot for balance when moving from crutches, walkers, or wheelchairs onto a chair, toilet or sofa thus disturbing the wound-healing process.

The Turning Leg Caddy®, when used according to instruction, allows people to perform most of their daily activities (i.e. food preparation, personal care and even getting out for shopping) and still be 100% non weight bearing 100% of the time.

Additionally, the use of the Turning Leg Caddy® helps maintain cardio/pulmonary fitness as moving is easier and therefore, more movement is done.
