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%.
The TrueKast with QuickSaw Technology comes in a complete, one size casting kit which includes your choice of walking surface. You may choose either the Footplate Option (Small Footplate, Large Footplate, TMA Footplate) or the Cast Shoe Option (XL Cast Shoe, XXL Cast Shoe).
