Total Contact Casting - Clinically Effective Approach to Healing

Dr. David Armstrong and his colleagues' research results showed that TCC heals a higher proportion of wounds in a shorter amount of time over the two other widely used off-loading modalities — the Removable Cast Walker (RCW) and the half-shoe (P=0.026).1 Fiberglass and plaster casts retain their rigidity over time, healing the ulcer over a shorter period.2

Wounds achieving less than 53% closure at week four have minimal chance of healing with conventional therapy.3

  • 90% of all non-ischemic ulcers without infection
  • Average time to heal = 34 days

By definition, a Total Contact Cast is rigid and is the 'Gold Standard' in the management/healing of DFUs. Cutimed® Off-Loader Select incorporates all components necessary for providing a truly rigid casting.
