Ossur Rebound Diabetic Walker

Ossur Rebound Diabetic Walker is uniquely designed for effective treatment of plantar foot ulcers, with easy access and re-fitting during wound care, and improves the patient mobility during the healing process. It features an effective tri-laminate insole with removable shock-absorbing hexagons and is constructed of soft and breathable material. The walker boot has an anatomically designed shell that immobilizes the foot and ankle at 90 degrees and a rocker bottom outsole for a smooth rollover.

Rebound Diabetic Walker Features

  • Easy Pneumatic System for safety and comfort
    • The Rebound Diabetic Orthopedic Walker is equipped with a pneumatic system that ensures fixation of the foot while allowing for a customized, comfortable fit.
    • To secure blood flow to the foot, the inflatable bladder includes a pressure relief valve to maintain pressure in the bladder below the diastolic blood pressure.
  • Immobilization and Protection
    • A toe protection bumper keeps the toes safe while, on the distal and proximal edges, flexible Flex Edge overmolding prevents pressure points.
    • The Flex Edge material at the top of the walker can be easily trimmed and cut downwards to allow for an increased opening at the top, ensuring a snug fit for anyone.
  • Increased Patient Compilance
    • Since the effectiveness of healing foot ulcerations using a walker increases when compliance is enhanced,5 the Rebound Diabetic Walker includes tamper evident strapping for compliance monitoring.
  • Even Pressure Distribution
    • The Rebound Diabetic Walker tri-laminate insole consists of removable independent hexagonal pieces that work collectively to adjust and react to forces under the plantar surface of the foot.
    • The removable pieces are on the underside of the insole, offloading the ulcer, while the Plastazote top cover, next to the skin, evenly distributes the pressure and minimizes friction.
    • To ensure even distribution of pressure and minimize the risk of developing new foot ulcers, the insole is heat-moldable.
  • Easy fitting check with positioning portals
    • Positioning Portals allow the clinician to check the fit of the walker at the heel bottom, in order to ensure appropriate positioning of the foot in the walker.
  • Natural Gait
    • The rocker bottom outsole of the Rebound Diabetic Walker is designed for a smooth roll over, outperforming competitive walkers with its close-to-natural gait cycle.
