Review:

"Supporting wound treatment in a contemporary structure and in accordance with the current status of medical advancements in German speaking countries and European regions"; so reads the mission of WundD.A.CH.

Since 2012 WundD.A.CH is the parent organisation of all German speaking associations and groups, which are strategically and operatively active in the field of wound management.

The organization was founded by professional associations; AWA (Austrian Wound Association), ICW e.V. (Initiative Chronic Wounds) and SAfW (Swiss Association for Wound Care).

As one of the founding members of the Woundcare-Circle, this year's meeting was important for two reasons. Our first objective was to present glimpse into our on-going activities with the WCC as well as to exhibit therapeutic products in the field of diabetic and Woundcare. And this year it was our intension to provide a unique meeting place for the German delegates.

On board at the event was DARCO's Swiss based distributor Orthopartner, as well as our DARCO counterpart in Austria profeet.

DARCO demonstrated its leadership in the treatment of foot and ankle wounds and presented itself as a specialist at the jointly held booth under the umbrella of the Woundcare-Circle. The WWC was proud to host a lunch symposium under the title of THE "DIABETIC FOOT" MODERN KNOWLEDGE AND CONCEPTS FOR TREATMENT Saturday.

The lectures were given by PD Dr. Med. Dieter Mayer senior physician and Specialist for Vascular surgery and Surgery at Kantonsspital Freiburg, CH and the senior physician, team leader in technical orthopaedics at the University Hospital Balgrist Zurich, CH; Dr. med. Thomas Böni.

In the filled lecture hall the visitors followed the explanations given by the Specialists and also became familiar with the Woundcare-Circle Algorithm, a guideline for the Diabetic Foot Off-Loading through all phases of the disease. We are thankful to all the visitors who came to our booth and to those who attended the symposium. It's always an enlightening worthwhile experience for DARCO to attend the WundD.A.CH events and we look forward to the next one.

8th DARCO (Europe) Distributor Meeting
Raisting, Germany /

Review:

How we welcomed our European distributors!

Every second year or so, DARCO invites its key distributors throughout Europe here to Raisting. Ours partners receive a closer look into the direction DARCO is headed. There were scientific lectures, insights into the development of a product and the shift in our manufacturing model.

Our European partners mean a great deal to us and we always try to schedule the event during a nice time of year so our guests can also enjoy the Upper Bavarian culture, hospitality, beautiful nature, and of course a little bit of local fun. This year was no exception, we were able to host all of our guests to an evening at the 'one of a kind', world famous, Oktoberfest.

Without question, a good time was had by all, but more importantly; the DARCO Distributor Meeting is one way for us to say thank you to our very loyal partners. We made sure the meeting was packed-filled with information and exchange. We want to see our partners face to face and obtain a better understanding of each one and learn how, we together, can formulate solutions to the obstacles on the ground in their respective regions. We wanted to explore how we can build a stronger brand together to improve each business throughout the continent.

We took the opportunity to learn from one another on the topic of a "Digital World". The setting allows us to explore and compare the many ideas of how to overcome the disruption of changing Health care regulations and the competition. Everyone shares, listens and engages it was very inspiring.

Our guests from 10 countries left knowing the latest about DARCO- our restructuring into HG DARCO GROUP, the German manufacturing expansion in Köhra and right here in Raisting and our desire to engage direct "Open Innovation" with our distributors. There will certainly be more to come in 2019- we're excited about the future.

Review:

Spreading the word: DARCO pointing out new concepts of modern offloading at DFSG

"Advancement of knowledge on all aspects of diabetic foot care", this was the theme of this year's DFSG meeting. Same as in previous years, DARCO was taking part at the annual event of DFSG under the umbrella of Woundcare-Circle. This year's meeting took place in famous Porto, Lisboa, located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, registered UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The three day meeting offered a unique opportunity to meet with leading Diabetic Foot experts and to be updated on the diabetic foot research happening across Europe.

Besides providing innovative product solutions, DARCO is qualified by it's long lasting and permanent support and funding of the research, the science and the management of foot disease. DFSG Porto is the perfect platform for us to introduce DARCO's offloading products and the algorithm of Woundcare-Circle, of which DARCO is a founding member. Besides high-quality lectures and an interesting exhibition area, the visitors were invited to also join special workshops.

More than half of the 300 attendees visited the Woundcare-Circle workshop where Dr. Alberto Piaggesi (Italy), Dr. Claudia Giacomozzi (Italy) and Dr. José Luis Lázaro Martínez (Spain) explained new concepts of modern offloading.

DARCO would like to thank DFSG Executive Committee for hosting us, all attendees for joining us at the workshop and at the booth. We here at the DARCO look forward to the next year's meeting in Berlin, see next autumn!

Review: DARCO at Summer School
Bergamo, Italy

"Real life in a multidisciplinary Diabetic Foot Centre"

This is how the Diabetic Foot International Summer School of Surgery gets to the heart of the issue.

Since its inception, the Diabetic Foot International Summer School of Surgery has drawn experts and professionals from around the world to the event and is now considered one of the most profiled seminars for foot surgeons in the international community.

This year's event was at Humanitas Gavazzeni Hospital, Bergamo, Italy. Bringing together the world's top experts, the seminar's focus was specifically addressing: Diabetic Foot Infection, Ischemic Diabetic Foot, Charcot Foot, Plastic Surgery, Revascularization and Amputation as well as Postoperative offloading methods to prevent avoidable complications. They designed interactive discussions on a case by case basis with the experts. The Summer School seminar is limited to 15 participants worldwide. The scientific board was comprised of international heavy-weights from across continents: Dr. Giacomo Clerici (Bergamo, Italy), Prof. Robert G. Frykberg (Phoenix, USA), Prof. Chris Attinger (Washington DC, USA) and Dr. Fermin Martinez de Jesus (Veracruz, Mexico) just to name a few.

Unique to this scientific seminar, surgeons are entitled to access to the operating theatre and Cath labs (Examination rooms). In addition, the professionals have direct access to the in-patient wards and out-patient clinics.

On July 5th DARCO and its partners of the Woundcare-Circle conducted a "Hands-On" workshop focusing on the question: "what is the best choice for our patients?" The Woundcare-Circle presented clinically approved therapy programmes and products were explained in detail that offered specific solutions based on need and severity. We explored product options from casting to walkers and re-visited the importance for effective off-loading devices.

DARCO would like to thank the organizer for inviting us and allowing us the opportunity to face the international community of diabetic and wound care surgeons. With respect and honor we would support the Diabetic Foot International Summer School again in 2018.

Why is DARCO (Europe) in Bavaria involved in an event for the Chinese market?

DARCO is an international company with operations around the world; USA, Europe, China and India. We participate actively in international events and tradeshows.

Our involvement on exhibitions, conferences and professional meetings allow us to communicate directly with the professional associations and the medical community. Which at the end of the day; actually brings us closer to our customers and to the people whom, through our products, enjoy an improvement in the quality of their lives. Through these commitments we develop a sense for the market place and we have the chance to establish ourselves and our position with our competitors. Finally and perhaps most importantly, we have the opportunity to engage the experts in the field 'face to face' in demanding, thought provoking discussions. These are the building blocks behind our innovations with product development.

For many years DARCO (Europe) has been organising the booth of DARCO China at the 'China Medical Equipment Fair CMEF' within the Bavarian Pavilion.

The "China Medical Equipment Fair" in Shenzhen, China is the premier 'Medical Device' event in the Asian-Pacific region. The event draws nearly 4000 exhibitors from 150 nations every Spring and Fall. Shenzhen has an average age of 29 and its 15 million residents boast an annual growth of 20%; clearly one of the most dynamic cities in China and in the world. It's the perfect setting for the more than 110,000 visitors that converge on the 'mega city'. And for DARCO with our 30 years of expertise, we score big with our innovative, high quality orthopaedic footwear and soft goods at this event. DARCO has the 'know how' and the experience to develop effective world-wide campaigns. For us it's important to remain close to our customers and to fortify our international brand on the world market place.

The CMEF fall show is already approaching and once again DARCO (Europe) is looking forward to assisting our operations at DARCO China.

Review Arab Health 2017:

DARCO goes Dubai

DARCO International is dedicated to being one of the leading providers of post op, trauma and wound care solutions to the global foot and ankle community.

For many years running now, we've been on-sight at the Arab Health Dubai Congress. We're "one of the family" among the exhibitors and place great value in the event. Arab Health Dubai is the largest healthcare exhibition & medical congress in the Middle East and the second largest in the world.

Notably this year was the evidence that diabetes is on the rise worldwide and the elevated awareness for prevention and treating the diabetic foot has intensified in the Middle East. The need for solutions and effective treatments for the diabetic foot was vividly prevalent.

DARCO is continually working on more effective solutions for prevention and the treatment of pressure ulcers on the foot; while never losing sight of the need for postoperative solutions. This is DARCO's territory. With passion and dedication we've continued to evolve with this rapidly changing world for more than 30 years.

Arab Health Dubai is colourful and full of variety, so is DARCO. It's beyond the manufacturing and sale of products; DARCO a worldwide group with headquarters in the USA and subsidiaries in Europe, China and India, is committed to the continued progress for better healthcare possibilities. And we are dedicated to the education of physicians as well as health care providers engaged in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle throughout the world.

It was a successful meeting in Dubai this year and we look forward to returning again in 2018.

Review: Wounds on the foot?
DARCO as a strong member of the Woundcare-Circle in France

Journées Cicatrisations 2017

Société Française et Francophone des Plaies et Cicatrisations (SFPPC)

The French Society for Wound Healing organizes its traditional annual meeting in Paris.

From the 15th to 17th of Enero this year 3,500 professionals; including doctors, caregivers, surgeons and pharmacists all gathered at Palais des Congrès in Paris to contribute to the progress of the discipline.

This year, SFFPC included a Special Session called Update in Wound Technologies (UWT) regarding new technologies in the treatment of Ulcers of the diabetic foot and leg.

Prof. Alberto Piaggesi, Pisa, Italy (Council Member EWMA) moderated the topic "How new technologies have improved the Off-loading of the diabetic foot in the phases of prevention, therapy and re-adaptation"

Together with our partners of the Woundcare-Circle we develop new concepts and superior solutions for clinicians and patients under the mission "Get pressure ulcers under control" and the Diabetic Foot Off-loading Algorithm©, developed by Franco Salvatelli, is gaining more and more international recognition.

Since 2013, DARCO and the Woundcare-Circle have been participating in the French Wound Healing Congress. Under new organization and management, this year's event was not only insightful for all attendees but also proved to be an enormous success. The healing of wounds and improving the quality of life for the diabetic patient is the common goal. DARCO and the Woundcare-Circle are very proud to be part of this event.

The Woundcare-Circle team was comprised of US, Italian, German and Swiss members and our booth was the center of great interest as we explored the growing requirements with in-depth discussions and offered insights specific to individual needs. Visitors were introduced to DARCO, Heelift and OPTIMA products, addressing the growing need for effective solutions for the professional care giver.

By introducing new products as well to the French market, we elevated the interest in the Diabetic Foot Off-loading Algorithm© effectiveness and the Woundcare-Circle philosophy. The DARCO "Relief Dual" and the OPTIMA "SBi", were both the topic of many discussions and worthwhile interactions. DARCO and the Woundcare-Circle are pleased to have participated in this year's event providing time and expertise for the attendees of the Journées Cicatrisations and we are looking forward to 2018. Perhaps we'll see you there!

Review: College of Podiatry Annual Conference
Glasgow, Scotland, Nov 17 - 19, 2016

The College of Podiatry Annual Conference was a successful but also challenging tradeshow and it was DARCO's first time exhibiting at this renowned event. The Annual Conference is Europe's biggest and most notable podiatry conference on the continent. Hosted in various cities every year, this year's venue was in the historical Scottish city of Glasgow.

Over 1,200 podiatrists, 100 speakers and 80 Exhibitors joined the meeting during the 3 day event. The UK has the largest society of Podiatrist in Europe and this discipline is experiencing phenomenal growth in the private sector. DARCO's message was received positively as we show-cased the next generation of off-loading shoes and the advances we've made with the redistribution of weight on the plantar surface. The sophistication of our innovations was received enthusiastically among the professionals in the field.

The next College of Podiatry Annual Conference is now scheduled for the 16-18 Noviembre 2017 at the ACC Convention Centre in Liverpool. Our reception was so overwhelmingly positive, we will certainly return to the conference next year. We hope to see you there.

2nd Nordic Diabetic Foot Symposium
Kopenhagen, Denmark /
http://www.nordicdiabeticfoot.org/

Review: DARCO Diabetes and Woundcare Products in Scandinavia
2nd Nordic Diabetic Foot Symposium,
Copenhagen, Denmark, 5 - 6 Octubre 2016

With great pleasure DARCO participated at the 2nd Nordic Diabetic Foot Symposium on 5-6 Octubre 2016, at Copenhagen University under the umbrella of Woundcare-Circle.

"The symposium provided a forum for sharing and dissemination of high level scientific evidence as well as local examples of best practice diabetic foot care. It also served as a platform for coordinating the joint effort of promoting guideline implementation in each of the Nordic countries" 1

Following the mission of the NDF Symposia, Woundcare-Circle presented Symposia: "An Algorithm for Modern Off-loading... and not only" presented by Dr. Clerici (Italy), with chairman's Dr. Klaus Klaus Kirketerp-Møller, Chair Nordic Diabetic Foot Symposium (Denmark) and Dr. De Giglio (Italy).

During the discussion in the plenum it became obvious, how important the exchange of interdisciplinary knowledge in diabetic footcare is. Off-loading devices - not only during day time - are mandatory for the prevention and healing of diabetic foot ulcerations. New technologies offer also for industrialised devices more and more customized solutions and therefore can be adapted to patients needs more easily. Once again the Woundcare-Circle Algorithm, established as a guideline for treatment of diabetic foot in daily practice, corresponding with the International Guidelines of Diabetic Foot, The Hague 2015, described appropriate solutions for specific indications and difficult foot problems.

The accompanying poster session showed the user report of the Orthotic Management after Chopart Amputation in Diabetic Patients published by Dr. De Giglio (Italy). The Body Armor® Pro Term Foot Stump Orthosis is developed by DARCO is a superb intermediate treatment to support normal stump and the poster met with a high level of interest.

Thank you to all our supporters. We are looking forward to the next Nordic Diabetic Foot Symposia.

REVIEW: World Union of Wound Healing Societies, Florence, Septiembre 25-29, 2016

WUWHS had been organized under the motto "One Vision, One Mission" to summarize a precise objective in a few clear words: to promote with determination a greater coalescence and integration of all the Scientific Societies around the world that have the care of skin wounds as their main mission.1)

DARCO participated for the first time under the umbrella of Woundcare-Circle at WHWUS and proudly supported the Focus Session on Off-loading the Diabetic Foot. The session was presented by Prof. Alberto Piaggesi, Director of the Diabetic Foot Section of the University Hospital of Pisa, Tuscany in reference to the Pisa Charcot Foot Protocol and his experiences with different off-loading devices following diabetic foot treatment. Among those DARCO, OPTIMA Molliter and Heelift devices were used to prevent pressure ulcers, decreasing healing-time, increasing quality of life and compliance of the patient.

Concluding the focus session Prof. Alberto Piagessi presented the current Woundcare-Circle Algorithm corresponding with the International Guidelines of DFSG in, The Hague 2015 as a guideline for use of off-loading footwear in daily practice.

In addition to the Focus Session, DARCO presented its range of products at the booth. This gave us the opportunity to interact with the more than 4000 participants of the conference.

Visitors from all parts of the world shared the mission of Woundcare-Circle "Get pressure ulcers under control" and were updated on the proved and innovative solutions of DARCO Diabetic and Woundcare products.

New friendships and collaborations started. We would like to say THANK YOU to everyone for making this conference a success for DARCO and the Woundcare-Circle. We are grateful to WUWHS, Dr. Romanelli and Dr. Vladimir Obolenskiy for their generous support. Many thanks also to Prof. Alberto Piagessi, Prof. David Armstrong and Dott. Giacomo Clerici for their extensive efforts in giving scientific input.

Review EWMA Bremen 2016 - DEUTSCHER WUNDKONGRESS
The World Leading Wound Conference - DARCO Europe in best company.

This year's joint conference was the biggest EWMA conference ever and therefore also the world leading wound conference. The organizers reported that over 6,000 attendees and exhibitors from 84 countries joined the conference this year.

As published in our E-Journal, DARCO Europe was in cooperation with the Woundcare-Circle at the event. This home turf advantage was highlighted by our Live product demonstrations. The emphasis was on knowledge-sharing and product application techniques within our range of Diabetic and Woundcare products.

Once more the intensive exchange of information with practitioners and international specialists at the booth demonstrates that DARCO is dedicated to creating devices to help such ailments. Our Diabetic, Off-loading and Wound Care line of shoes are focused on prevention as well as designed to aid and facilitate the healing process of wounds and ulcers.

As one of the founding members of the Woundcare-Circle, DARCO supports research and development as well as training courses.
