Primary causes of Foot ulcers and bed sore formation are loss of protective sensation and increased plantar foot pressure. Healing these ulcers need prompt control of infection, adequate blood supply, excellent wound care, and pressure offloading. Of these factors, offloading is believed to be the most challenging factor in the treatment of chronic wounds.
Pressure offloading using Felt Pad not only helps reduce the peak plantar pressures at the site of ulceration but also acts as a protective layer further enhancing the wound healing process. In contrast to other methods for pressure relief, such as total contact cast, felted foam also enables daily dressing changes.
