AIRSELECT, SHORT, SMALL
Provide comfortable moderate support and compression for forefoot, mid-foot and hind foot injuries, as well as some ankle injuries with the most advanced pneumatic walking boot available. The AirSelect™ Short offers superior comfort and faster healing.1,2 A sleek, durable, semi-rigid shell helps support and protect the limb, while the pre-inflated front panel and two adjustable distal aircells provide compression; patients can easily adjust aircell pressure themselves with the integrated inflation system. The boot’s lightweight, lab-tested rocker sole encourages a natural gait and supports everyday activities; SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock.
Ideal for: Specifically designed for metatarsal fracture, forefoot and mid–foot injury, acute or post– operative use, bunionectomy, and soft tissue injury.
1. “Conservative Therapy for Acute Lateral Ligament Lesions – Single Chamber vs. Two–Chamber Orthosis Systems” (Schmidt, Mainers, Reintges, Lipke, Benesch, Gerngross– Surgery Dept of the Federal Arm Hospital, Ulm, Germany, 1999) compares the effectiveness of a dual aircell orthosis vs a single aircell boot system in reducing swelling 3x faster of the injured ankle. 2. Functional outcome of surgery for fractures of the ankle. A prospective, randomised comparison of management in a cast or a functional brace. (Egol KA, Dolan R, Koval KJ) show that the use of a functional brace and early movement after surgery is beneficial for patients with ankle fracture and allows for significantly earlier return to work.
