VACOPed

VACOPed

Inspired by ski boots 

VACOped boot is the most comfortable (and functional!) orthopedic boot in the world.

VACOped sets the standard for modern health care with injuries to the foot and ankle. Our therapy concept has been proven to deliver the best results and offers many advantages, to the physician as well as to the patient.

VACOped consists of a vacuum cushion that adjusts itself precisely to the shape of every foot and lower leg. This adjustment procedure can be repeated as often as you like. A light and very stable plastic shell provides the injury site with the necessary stability. Through this unique construction, the VACOped provides far more freedom of movement than a plaster cast.

And as we always keep an eye on costs and the environment as well, the VACOped is returned to us after use and is re-used after a thorough cleaning and inspection by our specialists.

Vacuum Technology

VACO12 technology is the core technology of the VACO Products. A cushion filled with thousands of styrofoam pearls is surrounding the injured body parts. By the perfectly round shape of the pearls they can absorb 12 times the pressure each. When air is extracted from the cushion by using a pump, the body shaped cushion becomes hard (as a cast does), just in a few seconds. By opening the valve and letting air flowing inside the cushion, it becomes soft again and can be re-adjusted to the body part. Hence the Vacuum Technology avoids pressure to the body site and provides stability due to a perfectly shaped orthosis at any time.
