Orthomerica Wound and Limb Salvage (OWLS)

OWLS walkers are a range of custom made orthotic devices designed to offload the diabetic foot. The advanced design of the OWLS range keeps the user ambulatory. OWLS walkers stabilise the foot and ankle and support the limb to promote all of the health benefits associated with mobility.
