A total offloading foot brace for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers: Results from a halted randomized controlled trial
Foot offloading is the mainstay treatment for plantar diabetic foot ulcers. This multicenter, single-blinded, randomized controlled trial evaluates the efficacy of a total offloading foot brace for healing plantar DFUs. Seventeen patients were randomized to standard therapy (ie, reducing stress and pressure via mechanical offloading) or offloading foot brace. Comparison of plantar pressures was performed using digital pressure sensing films.
