Provide protection and comfort while controlling edema with the most advanced pneumatic walking boot available. The AirSelect Elite is clinically proven to be effective in healing fractures and managing edema.1,2 The front panel is pre-inflated and combined with the overlapping aircells posterior and distal aircells for a “total contact” fit; the integrated inflation system allows patients to easily adjust aircell pressure themselves without a pump. A sleek, durable, semi-rigid shell helps support and protect the limb, and the lightweight, lab-tested rocker sole encourages a natural gait and supports everyday activities. SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock.
Ideal for: Specifically designed for stable fractures of the lower leg, foot, and ankle; severe ankle sprains; and post–operative use.
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.
