DEFENDER, FOR WOUND PATIENTS

Defender was founded by Dr. Jason Hanft, a podiatric surgeon and the foremost expert in wound care. Dr. Hanft contributes over 30 years of experience working with a broad spectrum of patients, from elite athletes to the most critically complex diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) patients. By combining Dr. Hanft's expertise with industry-leading shoe designer Michael DiTullo's style and engineering, Defender has been able to develop smart foot care solutions that protect and heal a wide range of foot conditions.

5+ Years

Defenders' flagship product, Foot Defender, is the result of diligent design and engineering through 39 iterations over five years.

In clinical studies of patients, Foot Defender alleviates average contact pressure across the foot by up to 50% compared to other protective boots on the market.
