What is an Air Cast?
An air cast is a medical device that encases a healing body part in a cushioned casing, reducing pain and promoting healing. Typically, it consists of two basic components, an air-filled splint that is surrounded by a hardened exterior shell.
Aircast walking braces have a lightweight, durable semi-rigid shell that help support the limb while providing full-shell protection. Lining the shell are overlapping aircells providing intermittent pneumatic compression for edema reduction and callus formation. These aircells can be custom inflated for a “total contact” fit.
Additional features of certain models include SoftStrike technology which absorbs and dissipates shock, while the light weight and lab-tested rocker sole combine to encourage a natural gait and a continuation of everyday activities.
All models come with hand bulb.
Air casts may be medically prescribed for the following conditions:
- Stress and/or Stable fracture of foot/ankle/lower leg;
- Severe ankle sprain;
- Post-operative immobilization;
- Reduction of edema (swelling) 3x faster;
- Metatarsal fracture;
- Hallux valgus;
- Soft tissue injury;
- Hindfoot and heel foot protection;
- Neuropathic ulcers;
- Soft tissue injury.
A special AirCast is available for those with Diabetes.
