VACOCast boot

VACOCast boot

The modern alternative to a plaster cast

VACOcast boot is the most comfortable (and functional!) orthopedic boot in the world.

VACOcast is an orthotic boot with a unique vacuum cushion technology to adjust the fit whenever required. It is stable like a cast, however can be adapted to the foot when swelling of atrophy occurs.

The Vacocast can be taken off for advanced physiotherapy. You can be active while healing—you can even go swimming in your VACOcast.

Vacuum Technology

VACO12 technology is the core technology of the VACO Products. A cushion filled with thousands of styrofoam pearls is surrounding the injured body parts. By the perfectly round shape of the pearls they can absorb 12 times the pressure each. When air is extracted from the cushion by using a pump, the body shaped cushion becomes hard (as a cast does), just in a few seconds. By opening the valve and letting air flowing inside the cushion, it becomes soft again and can be re-adjusted to the body part. Hence the Vacuum Technology avoids pressure to the body site and provides stability due to a perfectly shaped orthosis at any time.
