Anatomical Design Helps Realign & Support the Ankle

The AirLift PTTD Brace is designed for the treatment of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD), or for early signs and symptoms of the adult acquired flat foot. Depending on the severity of the condition, it can be prescribed for use as part of a conservative treatment to stabilize the condition and help prevent its degeneration, or post-surgically and during rehabilitation.


Foot support and ankle stabilization are provided by the AirLift integrated aircell and semi-rigid shells. The aircell, located under the foot arch, is adjustable using the Hand Bulb (included with the brace). When inflated, the aircell can accommodate variances in arch shapes and heights and comfortably lifts the foot arch to achieve a more natural foot position. For ease-of-use, aircell inflation can be adjusted while wearing foot wear. The semi-rigid shells are anatomically designed to the shape of the ankle for secure support and stabilization. These shells help realign the ankle and support the patient.


The AirLift is designed for easy application and adjustment. The brace uses an innovative rear entry design which allows the patient to slip their foot into the back of the brace. Two straps secure the brace and can be used to adjust fit. These patient-friendly design elements make the AirLift easier to apply than custom braces, eliminate time consuming lacing, and help improve patient compliance.


Products features and benefits

  • Adjustable arch aircell for individualized support and comfort
  • Anatomically designed shells for secure ankle stability
  • Rear entry design and simple two strap application promote ease of use and compliance

Indication

  • Posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction
  • Adult acquired flat foot

Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace reviews

Julie
This aircast has been great - I wear one everyday for @2years now. It has enabled me to be active - long walks, hike, normal life, with 90% less pain. I have gone through several. - Julie
Walking Grandma
My podiatrist put me in the first Aircast PTTD brace. I immediately felt relief. Bought a second one from BetterBraces.com to make it easier to wash and air dry. I wear the brace about 14-16 hours a day and have used it for over 4 months. I have improved so much that I am not tearing up at the thought of going to the grocery store or any where else for that matter. I have reached the point of being able to stay on my feet for several hours at a time. I expect more improvement and complete healing. What a great product. - Walking Grandma
Activemom
The cast works great, but after six months of use it began leaking air. Now it hold now air at all. For the price, I am hoping the second set I am buying holds up better. Other than that, it definitely helps with my failing tendons and increasing flat footedness. - Activemom
Pinki~Chell
From the 1st time I put the Brace on it was ....{ Heaven!!!} I have flat feet and have brought a lot af Braces ,but None can come close or can compare to the comfort that I have experience from this brace Thank~Aircast*I rate this product a 10* - Pinki~Chell

They work! Designed well. For $56 I don't care if I have to replace them once or twice a year. They saved me! My feet were so painful I couldn't walk. Saved my arches and at least one of my ankles from PTTD destruction. I don't know if I purchased in time to save the other ankle. Will find out from Dr. in a few days. At size 8.5 I could have used the small or medium. The medium is a little big but easily solved by wearing an ace bandage around your foot/ankle. This also gives your swollen ankles some room. When the swelling goes down then I'll get the small. In the meantime these are great. Just pump them up! - atalanta
PeggyK
My doctor has been treating me for PTTD for over 2 years now. After fracturing my left ankle in April 2011, it made pttd symtoms worse. This brace has been a lifesaver as it makes it a little more comfortable to walk. I will still need surgery, but this brace really helps. - PeggyK
GaryL
My doctor sold me my first brace for PTTD and this brace is a great creation and allows me to function a normal life. I could hardly walk with my swollen ankle, and the 2nd day wearing it I could do anything without pain. What a life preserver this creation is! - GaryL
Thankful in TN
Great Product! Thanks to the inventor! absolute life saver! - Thankful in TN
texasgirl
I was diagnosed with pttd 3 yrs ago. Very painful condition. I had the 500 dollar custom insoles made. My insurance would not cover them so the cost was out of pocket. Within 6 months they were worn out and needed to be replaced. I certainly could not fit that cost into my budget. I work at a very physically demanding job, and on my feet at the factory the entire 8 to 12 hrs every day. My foot hurt and was swollen to were i just couldnt stand that long anymore. Desperate to find some relief i came to this website. I thought for the price i will try it. I am now telling you without the brace i could no longer do my job. It has helped tremendously with the pain. Great product. Saved my job. Thanks aircast. - texasgirl
I know the aircast boot helped my PTTD for a while - aaron
Nikki
I was recently diagnosed with PTTD. My physical therapist recommended this brace to my podiatrist who agreed and told me to order it. Once I found the right inflation level for me, I've been feeling pretty good! I just received one for my left foot (now I have one for each foot!) today. I ordered the two braces (same brand, same size) from two different websites. The first one I ordered (right foot), gives me some trouble with inflating (the air leaks back out as soon as I get it in. It takes some doing to get it to stay in, this has happened since the day I got it. No issues like this at all with left brace). The left one feels smaller, but I'm hoping that after a couple days of wearing will help with that. The air bladders don't seem to hit my arches in the same places either... I'll have to play with the inflation levels to see if that helps. Having trouble getting them adjusted but I'm going to keep trying. Bottom line is, I know that I'm doing better with my right foot, despite the issues I've had with the brace. I haven't been able to work in two months due to PTTD. I'm scheduled for my first four hour shift on Monday... here's hoping!! - Nikki
Cindy
I've only had mine two days but despite a bad DonJoy rep at my doctor's office sending me home with one that was clearly used and didn't hold air, the replacement is helping a lot. I haven't been able to walk without crutches or a walker since my hip surgery in April but the past month has been because of my foot. In two days I'm already walking more without a crutch than I have in months. I'm definitely keeping this one! - Cindy
dog lover
It works - dog lover
I've got a collapsed arch , the doctor advised me not have the operation as it was a massive op and I would be off work for a whole year recovering, he suggested I wear this ankle brace, at first I wasn't that impressed with the thought of wearing this but am glad I did. I've been wearing it now for a month and it has taken all the pain and swelling I use to have away, am really impressed with this, and if I had to buy one every couple of months I would . Excellent product . - Steve

Questions on Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace

Sort by Ascending
  • From David at 11/19/14 7:15 PM
    • In the case of severe flatfoot on BOTH feet and posterior tibial dysfunction diagnosed on my right foot ONLY would it be okay to wear one on the left as well just to prevent pronation though not dignosed on the left foot. And would be this be okay to wear on both feet to prevent severe pronation say in place of a functional orthotic as the brace provides more stability of the ankle? It certainly feels like the brace is doing a better job of controlling the pronation!
    • David
      Yes you can wear a brace on either foot to help reduce pronation of the foot, and prevent any PTTD in the future
  • From Nursing Foot at 10/1/14 12:06 PM
    • I wear an 8 to 8.5 women's shoe size, sometimes a wide. Should I order a small brace or a medium brace?
    • Small
  • From Zeb at 8/26/14 11:24 AM
    • I wear a size 13 shoe. Will the Large size be big enough? It's a long stretch from 11.5 to 13.
    • Zeb
      Yes the large will be big enough
  • From runner at 7/31/14 7:54 AM
    • would this brace work for a nurse on feet all day?
    • If you have flat feet and pain in the arch area this brace will help with that
  • From Jack at 7/27/14 5:24 PM
    • I have tibialis posterior tendinitis and a stress reaction of the tibia, both located on my left foot. I have been instructed to ice and to complete theraband exercises daily which have both helped with the pain and limping. I will beginning football here in the next seven days and also have high arches. I want a brace that will give me support that I need and help keep pain to a minimum, but not be bulky at the same time so I can make the cuts I need. What brace best suits me?
    • Jack
      The PTTD brace by Aircast is really the correct brace but it is a little on the bulky side. Should fit into shoes but it is a tight squeeze.
  • From Asaunte Brazier at 7/11/14 11:07 PM
    • My feet are wide. When I wear these, will I be able to fit into regular width shoes.
    • Thank you for your question. The brace will have some bulk to it due to the rigid portions on the sides. Most people find they can fit this brace into an athletic shoe with no problems other than loosening their laces. This brace would require a shoe that you have some ability to be able to fit the added width of the brace.
  • From Miz at 6/10/14 8:19 PM
    • I play soccer would I be able to use in pick-up games. If not this one which would suit my needs
    • Thank you for this question. this product can be worn during athletic events. It is designed for PTTD and flat feet.. If this is you diagnosis, this would be the best option for you.
  • From Bill at 5/23/14 6:02 PM
    • My Dr provided me with an Aircast PTTD brace but I want to order a spare. How can I tell what size I already have? Did not see the size on the brace itself, but perhaps I'm not looking in the right spot?
    • Thank you for your question. The size would be located on the outside of the brace. You would see it on the ridged portion under the Aircast logo.
  • From Rick at 4/20/14 6:23 AM
    • I completely ruptured of my left foot fascia while playing tennis and my doctor provided an Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace which provided incredible support to my heel. I have always had a flat left foot with a normal arch in my right foot. I am almost completely healed from the rupture and started some physical therapy to strength the my posterior tibial tendon as well as other tendons and muscles of the left ankle. The doctor has confirmed that I do NOT suffer from PTTD but due to the severity of the rupture I have developed plantar fasciitis. Now, will your Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace provide the same heel/arch support as your Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace in addition to the overall ankle support from your Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace? In other words, does your Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace provides the best of both attributes of the Aircast Airheel Ankle Brace and Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace? Or would you recommend the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace with a DonJoy Silicone Heel Cup? Please note, I plan to return to playing tennis at my advance level in addition to my rigorous cardio workout sessions. I worry that the adjustable air bladder will not hold up well in the short and moreover the long term so that is why I asked about the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace with a DonJoy Silicone Heel Cup combination. Thank you
    • Rick
      If you have pain in your heel, then I would suggest the aircast airSport Ankle Brace and the Procare Heel Cups. The aircast Airlift PTTD Ankle Brace has a bladder under the arch not the heel, so if supports flat feet and pain associated with PTTD.
  • From J at 3/30/14 5:21 PM
    • Hi,
      Do you offer any "foot air casts" for a metatarsal bones? My physician didn't cast my foot, and it's not healing properly. The boot in which they gave me is too big. Hope you can help me find a foot brace. Thank you.
    • Julie
      You should go back to your physician and get the right size boot. because if the boot fits correctly then you r foot will be totally immobilized and will heal
  • From darcy at 3/25/14 4:06 AM
    • Hi, I have a medium in this PTTD brace. That's correct for my shoe size, but the top strap doesn't even come close to wrapping around to the back. It barely pulls across the front. it's on my right foot and the name on the top strap is really more over my inner ankle. Should I get a large? It seems to fit fine in the foot and I have high arches and love the air in the arch fit, but it will barely fit in my athletic shoe now. I can't imagine a large fitting in there.
    • Thank you for your question. If the Medium seems to be too tight in the fit around the lower leg, the large will be a better option. The bulk of t he brace will not be much different and it should fit the same in your shoe.
  • From Alison at 3/13/14 4:05 PM
    • Hi I do track and field more specifically shot put, discus and javelin. I sprained my ankle 2 years ago and I am still having issues with it. I need something to support my ankle well still being able to find into my shoes do you have any recommendations?
    • Alison
      I would reccomend the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace for your ankle. It is the closest thing to a tape job except that it will not get loose in 30 minutes. It should fit into your shoe just fine.
      http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • From Devin at 2/17/14 11:36 AM
    • How durable are the air pockets? What is the weight limit for the one under the arch. Im talking about various sports and weightlifting.
    • Thank you for your question. The brace can be worn during sports/athletics, as well as weight lifting. The aircell has been tested with 2,000 lbs of pressure and can withstand the addition weight of lifting and pounding.
  • From Cristabel at 1/30/14 11:47 PM
    • I have flat feet and tend to overpronate when walking. Will this brace help keep my ankle from rolling inward so much? It's causing a lot of ankle pain which is leading to shin splint pain. Thank you!
    • Yes this brace should help with the provnation. The air bladder can be filled up to support your arch
  • From Wendy at 1/25/14 8:43 PM
    • Hi, I am looking for support to use while running, hiking, walking, etc for my left foot. I have an extra bone in my foot (both, actually, but it's the left one that is painful), Accessory Navicular Syndrome..and both my feet are FLAT. What would you recommend? Thanks.
    • Wendy
      The Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace is the brace that I would recommend.It would give protection for the ankle plust there is a air bladder under the arch that can be inflated to help those who are flat footed and have pain associated with that.
  • From earl at 1/12/14 3:34 PM
    • I am wearing a size large aircast pttd brace. I am male and wear size 10.5 shoes.
      the dr. gave me the large size would I be better off with the medium size as it shows in the size chart.
    • Earl
      If the brace feels like it is not giving you any support because if feels to big, call your physician and tell him you would like another size, becuase according to your shoe size you would fit into a medium
  • From Paul at 12/12/13 7:49 PM
    • Two questions that have already been asked have conflicting answers. Question 1 - Can it be used with sports/activities - ANSWER: Yes. Question 2 - Can it be used during rigorous workouts - ANSWER: No. I see both of these activities as t he same. I am looking to use this brace while playing sand volleyball. It would like to know if it will function while running and jumping without a shoe? Also, I have a very skinny foot and ankle, size 12 (male). Should I consider the medium? Thanks
    • Paul
      This brace is a ankle brace that also has a air bladder to lift the arch of your foot. So it is helping with ankle support and lifting the arch for those who suffer from tendonitis of the posterior tibialis tendon. Can you where it playing sports and vigorous activities, the answer to both is yes, however the air bladder may not be that comfortable. You can wear while playing sand volleyball. According to the size chart you would wear a large
  • From Terry at 11/30/13 7:34 PM
    • my 10 year old son had the growth plate fracture on his right foot and Achilles tendinitis. It has healed, and we are looking for a brace for foot and ankle support. He is an active sports player, and we need one that will keep him from complaining about pain in his heel. Right now he is wearing shoes that range from a 7 to an 8, so we was looking for a recommendation for a brace that would give him the support he needs
    • Terry
      Thank you for contacting product support. The Aircast Airlift PTTF Brace is for those that suffer from instability of the ankle and have posterior tendon tibialis tendonitis, so this is not the currect brace for your son. We do have the Aircast Airsport http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace that will give him good ankle support, however no cushion on the heel. We have the Aircast Airheel http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airheel this brace will relieve pain in the heel but doesn't give ankle support. We do not have a brace that does both. I would suggest the Airsport and a DonJoy Silicone Heel Cup for his heel.

  • From Eduardo at 11/16/13 9:23 PM
    • I wear a size 10 shoe with a large size Aircast that was very comfortable, that does not hold air and I need a replacement. Do I need to order the large 11 size now, or do I need the medium size brace?
      Thanks
      NEED TO ORDER SOON!
    • Eduardo
      You should fit into a medium but if you felt comfortable and have a wide foot you can order the large.
  • From Bethany at 10/10/13 6:57 PM
    • I usually wear a size 8 1/2 or 9-9 in tennis shoes. Should I order the size M?
    • The Small would be a good option for you. Only because if you are on the smaller end of the Medium you may find that it is too big as that size goes up to a 12. If the small turns out to be the wrong size we do have a 90 day guarantee which you would be able to exchange for the Med at no additional cot to you.
  • From Charles at 8/14/13 12:37 PM
    • I had back surgery approx. 7 years ago. I had a disk removed between L4 & L5. I have what doctors call drop foot. Would your product work for a drop foot?
    • Charles,

      The Aircast Airlift PTTD brace will give some mild support for Drop Foot, but it is not technically designed for this. DJO Global actually has a product called the Super-Lite A.F.O. which is made specifically for Drop Foot. The Product number for the Super-Lite A.F.O. is 79-81150 for the right foot and 79-81151 for the left foot. The foot bed is trimmable to needed size. You can call in to Customer Care at 800-336-6569.

      Have a great day!
  • From fred at 8/11/13 9:24 AM
    • The air cast works great and has relieved all my pain while playing softball. I've had it for one week and already broke the plastic white tip intake valve. Fortunately, the prescribing doctor replaced the entire cast. Just like Cheryl in the previous question it seems like this should be available since it is the most vulnerable part of the cast and easily inserted into the plastic fill tube.
    • Hello Fred,

      This is not a replaceable part, your brace has a 6month warranty and we will replace it if purchased through betterbraces.com

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Cheryl at 8/6/13 7:40 PM
    • I love my air cast, however, I lost the male intake valve on the brace that the female handpump fits into. Ths is the part of the valve that the air is pumped into
      Can this part be replaced?
    • Hello Cheryl,

      You lost the White Value that is attached to the Brace?Or the Hand Bulb to pump up the brace.

      We have replacement Hand Bulbs. But we don't have any replacement parts for the ankle brace itself. The White tip Value is not replaceable. How long have you had the ankle brace?


      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Patrice at 7/16/13 10:41 AM
    • Can I use this product for my 13 year old who had surgery to relieve the tendons in her foot due to 'drop foot'. She has developed 'flat foot' which needs to be corrected. Her foot is size 6, can she use the women small?
    • Hello Patrice,

      I would refer to your Physician as to which Brace/Walking Boot would be appropriate for your daughter seeing that she just had surgery. He may better recommend a product for you.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Kevin at 7/12/13 11:54 AM
    • I HAD SURGERY 3 YEARS ON MY FOOT AGO MY ANKLE SWELLS EVERY DAY THE DOCTER JUST TOLD ME TO GET A BRACE I AM LOOKING AT THE O2P WILL THIS ONE HELP WITH THE SWELLING AND ARCH SUPPORT OR IS THERE A BETTER ONE FOR ME? THANKS
    • Hello Kevin,

      What is your diagnosis? What was the injury? If you need compression to relieve the swelling I recommend a sleeve. See the link below.

      http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-deluxe-elastic-ankle-support

      In addition we have ankle braces that provide medial and lateral support.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.

  • From Buck at 6/2/13 8:59 AM
    • How long should I use this brace until my foot shows inprovement?
    • Hello Buck,

      You should use the brace as long as it is helping you and follow your Physician's Recommendation.

      Thanks for contacting Donjoy. Please call us with any additional questions. 1-888-405-3251.
  • From Sandee at 5/8/13 9:56 PM
    • I have recently rolled my ankle (a stage III sprain) would this be a good support for me to use in my netball?
    • This braced is used for dysfunction of the Posterior Tibialis Tendon. This tendon is on the inside of the foot. If you had a grade III sprain on the outside of the foot, thisx brace will put the ligaments as well as the Peroneal Tendons in a more stressed position. You should direct your attention to something with a more rigid stay in the side, such as the Velocity ES.
  • From Lee at 2/8/13 2:29 PM
    • there was no air pump. how can i order one and the cost.. i check at medical supply stores did have air pump
    • Hello, Lee -

      The Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace should have come with a hand pump. I would check the distributor where you purchased the item. If they are unable to provide you with one, you can contact our customer care department at 800-336-6569 and they can assist you in getting one.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Pat at 12/24/12 11:37 AM
    • I can't wear athletic shoes due to a shattered heel on my other foot. Would this fit in regular flat shoes (like loafers) - or do you have some sort of boot that can go over the brace?
    • Hello, Pat -

      The Aircast PTTD can be worn inside a shoe - normally people wear them inside athletic shoes. They don't come with a special boot to wear in. It may be possibly be worn inside a loafer, however it might be quite bulky. The product comes with a 90 day "test drive" guarantee, so you can try them inside your shoe to see if it fits appropriately; if not you may return the product.

      Thank you and have a great day!
  • From Katie at 12/14/12 6:59 AM
    • Can the brace be worn during a rigorous workout?
    • Hello, Katie -

      This brace is not recommended to be worn during rigorous workouts. It is usually worn post-operatively or during the rehabilitation phase of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction.

      Thanks and have a great day!
  • From Yvette at 11/23/12 9:55 PM
    • Is this brace suitable to wear in the pool. I have pttd and high but weakening arches so still need some support to prevent overstretching. regards Yvette
    • Hello, Yvette -

      We do not recommend wearing this brace in the pool. There is an air cell built into the brace that you pump air into and it may be compromised if water enters this cell.

      If you have further questions, we encourage you to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thanks and have a great day!
  • From Glen Verber at 8/17/12 12:23 PM
    • How does this fit in a shoe, or under a sock.

      thanks
    • Hi Glen

      First, I would suggest you put on a sock then put the brace on over your sock. After the brace is on, you will have to loosen your shoelaces and place your foot in the shoe. Lace up your shoes and you are good to go.

      If you feel like you need a more low profile ankle brace, we carry a variety of braces. You can contact us at 1-888-405-3251 to consult with a product specialist to see what best fits your needs.

      Thanks.
  • From Tiffany at 8/11/12 11:58 AM
    • Does it come with the air pump or is this an additional purchase?
    • The pump is included.
  • From Carol at 7/21/12 10:52 AM
    • How do I clean the airlift? I live in the South and it gets very sweaty here.
    • Carol,
      We recommend hand washing with woolite, or a mild detergent and rinsing with tap water. It should be air dryed.
  • From Wendy at 5/7/12 7:16 AM
    • Is this made from Neoprene?
    • Hi Wendy,

      Yes, the Airlift PTTD contains neoprene.

      Have a nice day.
  • From shreya at 4/6/12 3:20 AM
    • How long these braces should be worn? If I am resting on bed should this be worn at that time too??I am getting tight feeling in the mid of my feet and with sides I am getting pain on my inner ankle. Is this common? I am wearing since 2-3 days only.
    • Only wear this product while walking and with athletic shoes. You should not be wearing this at night. You should not have pain. If you do, discontinue use and refer to your physician for care.
  • From Oberman at 3/24/12 11:10 AM
    • how much do I have to inflate the pttd brace?
      Thanh you
    • Inflation amount is based off of comfort and pain relief level. It will be different for everyone.

  • From Orlando at 11/24/11 11:23 AM
    • Can this be worn during jogging?
    • Yes this can be worn during jogging. The aircell has been tested with 2,000 lbs of pressure and can with stand the pounding of a person running.
  • From liliya at 11/4/11 3:41 PM
    • do i have to deflate pttd brace every time i take it off and inflate it again after putting it back on my foot?
    • Hi Liliya,

      No, if you can comfortably take it on and off, you can leave it inflated.

      If you have additional questions please call, 1-800-553-6019

      Have a nice day.

    • I actually have very high arches, but am having bilateral PTTD. Do you think this product would help even though I don't have "flat feet".
    • Yes this brace with the adjustable aircell will help with your PTTD issues.

    • Should top strap go right around the back again after going round the front? I have a small and medium size..the small one's top strap goes around once and the outside support seems to slip forward a bit when walking. The foot bit is tight...but this one sits inside my trainers much better than the medium size which is quite bulky and I can feel the bottom of the supports around the back of my ankles. With the medium one the top strap goes aroundto the back again at the end and holds the outside support in place.I am UK size 7.
    • The uprights should sit on the inside and outside of your ankle and yes the strap should wrap around the lower leg for you. Should you have any other questions please let us know.

    • My doctors office told me I could wear the aircast brace in a shoe, but it is much more comfortable wearing it by itself. Is this okay or should i be wearing a shoe over it?
    • Hi Kelly,
      When you are walking around the house a shoe is not necessary but when you leave the house you will need the added support of a shoe. I recommend using sneakers or Tennis shoes and redoing the laces while you are wearing the anjkle brace. it should be much more comfortable.

      Thanks

    • is there a warrantly with this brace? It worked so well until it failed to hold air any longer. It lasted six months until it started to lose air and by the time it was a year old it no longer holds air.
    • Helli Michele,

      This unit has a 6 month warranty from the manufacturer.

    • Should I wear my regular orthodic in my shoe while wearing this brace? Thanks so much.
    • The Aircast PTTD will support the arch and with an orthotic may be too much support. Best to see how it feels and ask your doctor.

    • Can I use this brace for sports?
    • Yes, the Airlft PTTD can be used for a variety of sports and activities. We suggest walking first to get used to it a bit before doing any heavy activity. This will help your foot get used to the extra support.
