Fabricating a Charcot Crow Walker

85% of lower-limb amputations are preceded by a foot ulcer.

If you have any type of wound on one or both of your feet, it is extremely important to see a Podiatrist immediately. Your doctor can provide the best instructions for foot care and wearing the CROW walker as prescribed.

Those with Diabetes and other risk factors should have their feet examined regularly so that Charcot Foot symptoms and possible treatment can be discussed. As Charcot Foot develops, the bones in the foot weaken and fracture easily. Since pain sensation is likely decreased due to peripheral neuropathy, the person does not feel the pain associated with the injury. Deformity may occur so treatment is a serious and timely matter.
