Description

OPED VACOcast – The modern alternative to a plaster cast

  • VACOcast is a fixed-flexion (90º) orthopedic fracture boot / cam walker
  • Keeps the injured ankle immobilised in a fixed 90º position to help you recover fast
  • Features unique vacuum cushion technology – air cushion becomes strong and stable like a cast when air is removed from the cushion
  • Cast strength can be adjusted to accommodate swelling of atrophy – the cushion adjusts itself exactly to the shape of every foot and every swelling
  • Adjustment procedure can be repeated as often as required, and the VACOcast can be taken off for advanced physiotherapy
  • Vacuum cushion technology is clinically proven to get patients back to work up to 24 days sooner than traditional fiberglass casts
  • German engineered and manufactured, featuring a unique plastic shell design
  • OPED VACOcast is the modern standard of care for ankle and foot rehabilitation from injury and/or surgery

 

Features

  • Highly adjustable – flexible, precise and multiple adjustment controls:
    • Adjustable calf width to best fit patients with large calves, or to adapt to patients who have edema
    • Moveable toe plate to lengthen the plantar foot bed, to accommodate people with longer feet
    • Detachable sole to keep street dirt out of beds and off furniture
  • Very comfortable:
    • Vacuum cushion providing equal and firm support
    • Hand held air pump removes air from the cushion to strengthen it like a cast
    • Patients have the ability to adjust the cushion/cast strength by the amount of air removed
  • Hygienic:
    • Comes with removable cloth covers to cover the air cushion and provide foot comfort
    • Cloth covers are washable for increased hygiene
    • Sole can be removed at bed time so you can sleep with the cast on, and not bring dirt to bed
  • Itch free – easily and rapidly removed and replaced
  • Rocker sole – outstanding pressure distribution, safe and physiological gait
  • Lightweight and stable – German engineered plastic shell which is durable
  • Environmentally friendly – units are reusable

About OPED – German engineered products

Replacing the uncomfortable plaster cast with a light vacuum splint was the vision the OPED founders Andreas Hassler and Prof. Dr. Peter Habmayer. Their vision became reality in 1993 when the OPED VACOped – still the most successful OPED product, even today – came onto the market.

Around 280 staff design, develop, produce and distribute OPED products in more than 20 countries. OPED products are currently used in about 2,000 hospitals, clinics and O&P shops throughout Germany. In 2007 around 100, 000 patients had been treated with VACO®ped after fractures, ligament or tendon injuries on the lower leg and foot, making OPED the market leader in Germany in this category. OPED has subsidiaries in Switzerland, the USA, UK, Australia and China, and distributes products throughout Europe and Japan.

    This cam walker was great – locks foot in a 90degree position and the ability to set the strength of the air cushion/cast was very handy when my foot was swollen.
