Keast DH(1), Vair AH. Author information: (1)David H. Keast, MD, MSc, FCFP, is Centre Director and Theme Leader, and Audra H. Vair, MSc, BSc, is Study Coordinator and Research Assistant, Wound Care Research Group, at the Aging, Rehabilitation and Geriatric Care Research Centre, London, Ontario, Canada. Although the total contact cast is the criterion standard for the pressure redistribution of challenging foot ulcers, in practice it is not often feasible. The following is a case series that demonstrates an encouraging possibility for the Charcot restraint orthotic walker as a device to be used in more challenging forefoot ulcers.
