Now Enter: Diabetic Walker

May 1, 2001

Helps Avoid Development of Foot Complications

Many diabetes-related foot injuries get worse because sensations in the feet are diminished. This can eventually lead to lower-limb amputations.

Help, however, may be on the way with a new walking aid, introduced by AliMed.

Designed specifically for people with diabetic foot problems to prevent bruising and wound irritation, the QualCare Diabetic Walker is meant to protect the foot against pressure ulcers and blood-vessel damage. The QualCare Diabetic Walker has a fully padded interior, a cup on the back of the insole to help center the heel, an intermediate layer on the sole to shape the surface to fit your foot and a padded bootliner for extra comfort.

The QualCare Diabetic Walker comes in two sizes for men and women.

For more information, contact AliMed at (800) 225-2610 or www.alimed.com.
