The OPED VACOcast Diabetic includes all the benefits and features of the regular VACOcast with the additional inclusions of:

  • Added volume of VACO cushions for increased support and resilience to weight-bearing activity
  • Shear-free velour lining to decrease friction to be softer on fragile skin
  • Black colour to hide exudate and moisture marks

The OPED VACOcast Diabetic is a fixed flexion orthopedic fracture boot designed and engineered to assist in fast recovery and provide optimal comfort.

OPED's patented vacuum technology is the modern alternative to plaster and is integral to the VACO range of products. A cushion filled with thousands of styrofoam pearls surrounds the injured body part. When air is extracted from the cushion by using a pump, it becomes hard (like a cast), in just a few seconds. Opening the valve and letting airflow inside the cushion causes it to become soft again, allowing for readjustment to the body part.

This innovative vacuum cushion avoids pressure to the body site and provides stability due to a perfectly shaped orthosis every time. The light but very stable plastic shell gives the orthosis the necessary support.

  • Excellent pressure distribution due vacuum technology
