Die Gesellschaft für Fuß- und Sprunggelenkchirurgie e. V. (GFFC) wird 20Happy Birthday!
The Society for Foot and Ankle Surgery (GFFC) turns 20

As main sponsor of the independent German Association for Foot Surgery (GFFC), DARCO congratulates the GFFC with their 20 year anniversary.

DARCO and GFFC look back on many years of success and cooperation. DARCO has always been dedicated to support scientific symposia, seminars and workshops. From day one of our cooperation with GFFC, we were able to meet and work directly with the medical community; receiving invaluable, open and honest feedback on our ideas and finally our products. DARCO's close cooperation with foot surgery specialists, medical associations and biomechanical institutions from around the world is our basis for innovative product research and development. These long-term relationships have allowed us to develop ground-breaking advancements in the industry as well as maintaining the highest quality standards for our products.

"From the practice - for the practice" this is how the GFFC formulates its motto. The Association was founded to educate its members on a regular basis on the latest developments in conservative and surgical therapies for the treatment of foot.

We echo this philosophy and fully support the GFFC. With pride, we congratulate the Association for the past 20 years of tremendous success updating and educating the now 1.700 members with ultimately the highest standards on new procedures and proven therapies in foot surgery. We will remain a loyal and dedicated partner.

STOP Pressure Ulcer Day
November 17, 2016

Once again DARCO will STOP and focus our eff orts towards this very special and important event. The worldwide "Stop Pressure Ulcer Day" was created by the Spanish National Group for the Study and Advice on Pressure Ulcers together with the Ibero-Latin-American Society on Wounds. These two organizations formed the Declaration of Rio with the objective to "speak out" against people developing pressure ulcers and to elevate awareness about prevention.

DARCO'sinvolvement with the event is in line with our goal to develop partnerships and multifaceted programs to reduce foot ulcerations and amputations worldwide. Our campaign this year is designed to support proactive prevention. Daily inspection, appropriate foot-wear and good foot care are all important parts in preventing pressure ulcers on the foot. We are committed to elevate the public awareness to the realities of pressure ulcers and to proactively empower individuals and the medical community. This year for the event, we're off ering an inspection mirror plus valuable information designed to help patients keep an eye on their feet.

November 2016 - Events worth noting!

According to IDF data, the absolute number of diabetics in the EU-27 will rise from approximately 33 million in 2010 to 38 million in 2030. In 2010, approximately 9 % of the adults (20 - 79 years) population was diabetic. (EU-27countries)

Foot problems frequently develop as a result of having diabetes - but this can be avoided. Understanding the risk factors, proper foot maintenance and the need for regular foot examinations are essential for preventing foot ulcers in patients with diabetes. One of the most critical factors in prevention is education. Education can empower those suff ering from diabetes to take control of their condition and reduce the risk of ulcerations. With knowledge, skills and confidence, individuals can integrate effective self-management strategies into their daily routine and hence, improving their quality of lives.

DARCO realizes the importance of elevating awareness. You too can get informed and involved. There are two major campaigns in November. Check them out!

Welcome to the 7th issue

Dear Reader,

The DARCO E-Journal quarterly publication is designed to provide insightful information to our associates in the medical community, professional institutions and to our distributors throughout Europe.

Plantar Fasciitis? We have a solution!

Plantar fasciitis is a common, painful disorder affecting the heel and the underside of the foot. It is a disorder affecting the insertion site of the ligament on the bone and is characterized by scarring, inflammation, or structural breakdown of the foot's plantar fascia. It is often caused by increases in exercise or weight. It can also be associated with age or by overuse causing injury to the plantar fascia.

 
DARCO Europe E-Journal
7th issue!

  Enjoy reading! 

It is the most common injury of the plantar fascia and is typically the cause of heel pain. Approximately 10 % of all people will have plantar fasciitis at some point during their lifetime. It is relatively common in middle aged people but also occurs in younger people who are frequently on their feet.

The DARCO Body Armor® Night Splint provides the most effective stretch of the plantar fascia of any night splint on the market today. And it does so with a sleek and light-weight profile that provides optimal comfort and livability for the wearer. That means higher compliance and a more effective treatment of the symptoms. It is a win/win situation for both physician and patient.

We hope that you enjoy reading each issue of the DARCO E-Journal!
