    The OPED VACOped Short is the shorter and lighter version of the VACOped. It is a cast-stable function orthosis for the immobilisation of the foot and ankle. With the ability to provide a range of motion, the VACOped allows for greater freedom of movement than a plaster cast and has been proven to shorten a patient’s recovery process.

    OPED's patented vacuum technology is the modern alternative to plaster and is integral to the VACO range of products. A cushion filled with thousands of styrofoam pearls surrounds the injured body part. When air is extracted from the cushion by using a pump, it becomes hard (like a cast), in just a few seconds. Opening the valve and letting airflow inside the cushion causes it to become soft again, allowing for readjustment to the body part.

    This innovative vacuum cushion avoids pressure to the body site and provides stability due to a perfectly shaped orthosis every time.

    Features: 

    • All-in-One Product. Cast stable. Replaces back slab, cast and walker
    • Vacuum cushion forms perfectly to individual patient's anatomy and can be adjusted to accommodate swelling and atrophy
