Patients who have had surgery to the foot and/or lower leg are often recommended to wear off loading footwear post-surgery. Reed Medical is a premier supplier of such footwear, that has been engineered and manufactured by industry-leading brand PODartis.

Reed Medical supplies the PODartis range of acute phase off loading footwear to the NHS, as well as a number of private hospitals and clinics. Repeated clinical studies and trials have all confirmed just how effective the footwear is at providing functional post-surgery recovery.
