INFORMATION ON THE COVID-19 SITUATION

Update dated 30 July 2020

Dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in a manner appropriate to the situation is now part of standard business policy. We would like to give you some basic information about the current situation:

DARCO is fully able to deliver. We have also not experienced any corona-related restrictions or bottlenecks in the past at DARCO. We rigorously monitor our supply chains and continuously evaluate our stocks.

Prudent personnel management is an important factor during these times. Allaying fears and motivating staff ensures an homogeneous team of committed employees. Through strict cost control measures and by reviewing upcoming projects, we could and can currently rule out corona-related redundancies. We also have not cancelled the new hires planned before the pandemic. Therefore, we already look forward to having another apprentice in September and have also expanded our marketing team.

DARCO is here for you during standard business hours with the complete internal sales and field service team. Hygiene concepts established by us enable safe and effective work. To date, there have also been no confirmed COVID-19 cases in the entire hg DARCO Group.

Our in-house "Corona Task Force" keeps an eye on global developments regarding the virus and closely aligns itself with these. Appropriate measures are taken based on these findings. These directly impact both internal processes and our activities in the marketplace.

Of course, DARCO, like the entire industry, has to cope with a slump in sales. But, with a reliable team, we maintain a positive outlook for the future.

With this in mind - stay healthy!
Katja Eger on behalf of the entire Management Board

RESEARCH & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Time alone does not heal wounds

Treatment and prevention of diabetic pressure ulcers is not only complex, it also requires a long-term approach. In doing so, the patient education is crucial. Preventive or corrective actions can reduce or eliminate the risk of harm.

One of DARCOs main products for effective pressure redistribution in diabetic foot is the WCS® Wound Care Shoe. It is recommended for the treatment of open & closed ulcerations and other conditions of the foot where it is desirable to redistribute weight away from specific areas. The circumferential counter of the shoe forms a deep pocket in the sole to accommodate a variety of insoles under the ulceration or area of pressure.
