Pneumatic Walking Boot

This walking boot for stress fracture care and other injuries features two air chambers that can be positioned and inflated for support both to the medial and lateral part of the ankle. There is also a pre-inflated bladder at the anterior panel of the brace. This allows for customized compression and a personalized fit.

This pneumatic boot for walking has both a posterior and anterior shell for added support, as well as easy-to-adjust straps.

The boot for stress fracture treatment has a lightweight and low-profile design relative to other walker boots.  Also making this pneumatic walker boot easy to move about in is its wide footbed that can accommodate for swelling and bandaging as well as a rocker sole that is aimed at enabling a more natural gait.

The support is lined with a deluxe material and it has a detachable toe cover. The walker support comes with a thick, non-constricting BraceAbility Medical Sock for added comfort.

Walking Boot for Stress Fracture Treatment

Wearing a pneumatic walking boot is an option for injuries where weight bearing can be tolerated but the ankle joint needs to be immobilized. This is often preferable to casting as it is a lighter weight and more comfortable alternative to a cast that allows more mobility.

For instance, this is a popular walking boot for treating stress fractures of the foot or tibia. The support can reduce the amount of force on the damaged bone while allowing movement and limited weight bearing so that the bone can heal without one experiencing significant muscle loss while the leg is immobilized in a cast or splint. See more boots for stress fractures.

However, heavier duty procedures such as surgery, using crutches and immobilizing the bone via a splint or cast are sometimes necessary. In such instances, BraceAbility’s pneumatic stress fracture walking boot may be a good post-operative support.

A ruptured Achilles tendon is another instance where one may need to wear a pneumatic boot along with wedge inserts to elevate the heel. This combination allows the tendon to heal while eliminating the risk of surgical complications such as infection or nerve damage.

However, surgery is the most common treatment for a complete tear of the Achilles tendon. This is because a nonsurgical approach can take a long time to heal and the tendon is more vulnerable to another rupture at which point surgery may be more difficult.

A walking boot can also help with Achilles tendonitis by reducing the calf muscle’s pull on the tendon, as one cannot push off the ball of the foot or point the toes downward when wearing a walking boot. A walking boot can also help maintain a slight stretch in the Achilles tendon while one is at rest. Check out BraceAbility’s full line of splints and braces for Achilles tendonitis and ruptures.

This low-top boot for stress fractures is also an option for someone recovering from an ankle sprain. Wearing a walker pneumatic boot can protect the ankle from further ligament damage when it is in a vulnerable state. The compression it provides can help with related inflammation, as can ice, elevation and taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Rehabilitative exercises and stretches will likely be needed once the initial symptoms have subsided.

Some other conditions for which a limited period wearing a walking boot for ankle and foot injuries might be helpful include:

  • Bursitis
  • Ankle Arthritis
