Special feature

In connection with wounds in the foot¸ and ankle area, pressure complaints or other disorders can often be noticed too late or not at all. We therefore recommend that you check your feet, their bandages and orthopaedic aids daily. In case of occurring disorders, specific questions, delays in wound healing or unauthorised discontinuation of therapy ("incompliance"), please consult your attending physician or your medical supply store.
