Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of TCC. Healing rates of plantar ulceration have been reported to range from 73% to 100%. Seven RCTs and 1 meta-analysis shows that TCC has a healing rate of about 90%, typically within 6 to 8 weeks. Lavery, et al., demonstrated a reduction of peak plantar pressure at the ulcer site ranging from 81% to 92%. The TrueKast offers even more evidence of offloading efficacy through pressure testing:
This was a pressure mapping comparison study. Thirty minutes after application we compared pressures after standing for two minutes. (Fig 1) Test subject in tennis shoe. (Fig 2) Test subject in Roll-On cast with a walking boot. (Fig 3) Test Subject in TrueKast with Quicksaw technology. TrueKast improved offloading over a roll-on cast with a walking boot by 142%.
