The purpose of the trip was to gain additional understanding of the Total Contact Casting (TCC) system, application techniques and how TCC is used in relation to diabetic foot wounds and ulcers, and Charcot arthropathy.

Thank you to Infectious Disease Physician, Dr. John Embil, and Diabetic Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Mario Dascal and their supportive teams for their generous sharing of time and expertise.

Vicki and Kaitlin would also like thank trip organizer, Jason Linklater RT (Orthopaed), Orthopedic Technology Educator, along with Lisa Czerlau and David Van Hellemond, Territory Business Managers from BSN Medical.
