Darco Peg Assist Insole

When you have a wound on your foot or you've recently undergone surgery, it can be painful to take steps with the affected limb. In such cases, you should try to keep all weight off your foot. The Darco Peg Assist Insole enables patients to off-load pressure at precise points on the foot. This is ideal for offloading pressure from wounds and ulcerations of the foot.

Who Can Benefit from the Peg Assist Insole?

The Peg Assist Insole system features a multi-indication removable-peg chassis that effectively off-loads the plantar aspect of the foot after surgery or when wounds are present. As such, the insole is ideal for the following conditions:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Tailor's bunions
  • Foot calluses
  • Hallux valgus

Features and Benefits of the Darco Peg Assist Insole

  • Multi-indication removable-peg chassis
  • Effectively off-loads plantar aspect of foot after surgery or when wounds are present
  • Creates cost-effective option for wound care
  • Significantly reduces pressure after an operation
  • Turns most standard walkers into effective off-loading device
  • Removable pegs allow for localised off-loading of wounds and ulceration of the foot
  • Pressure reduced by as much as 60%
  • Allows patient to remain ambulatory

Helps You Remain Ambulatory

Reducing the pressure by as much as 60%, the Peg Assist allows you to remain ambulatory so you don't have to put your life on hold. The insole allows you to remove individual pegs at precise points of the foot to significantly reduce the pressure. This enables you to alter your treatment according to where the pain is localised.

The Peg Assist Insole is constructed from:

  • Poron 3mm Cover (blue layer)
  • Layer of Plastazote (skin tone layer)
  • EVA Plantar Pegs (black layer)
  • Stabiliser Board (bottom skin tone layer)

Darco Peg Assist Cross Section

Reduces Pressure

Below are two images, with the image on the left being the pressure on your foot when you use a standard surgical shoe. The image on the right is the built up pressure obtained when you use Darco's Peg Assist Insole. With the insole, there is a focal pressure reduction of 60% under the first metatarsophalangeal joint which is achieved by removing the pegs beneath the area marked by the red circle.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.
