Achilles – "The Vulnerable Spot"

Cover DARCO Europe E-Journal Compendium-BookletAchilles heel is a well-known synonym from Greek mythology symbolizing an area of weakness. As the story goes, Achilles was a small boy whose mother dipped him in the river Styx. The water's magic empowered his body with protection; except for the heel of his foot. The mother was holding the boy by a single foot and hence this heel remained vulnerable. Achilles grew up and survived many battles. Until one day, a poisonous arrow penetrated his heel and he died.

Today, we use the phrase "Achilles heel" to describe a vulnerability or weakness. In medicine, this anatomical term is a fibrous band or tendon attaching the calf muscles to the plantar aspect of the foot. The Achilles tendon withstands a lot of stress and pressure because of its instrumental role in jumping, running, and walking. Therefore, it's important during athletic or recreational activities. Passing over the ankle joint, the Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects the gastrocnemius and soleus to the calcaneus or heel. Common injuries of the Achilles tendon include tendonitis (inflammation), tendinosis (degeneration), and rupture.

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.
