    • I've had a drop foot (lower leg paralysis, severed sciatic nerve, hit-and-run driver) for 40 years and the ankle joint is very unstable. Any lateral movement or pronation or supination is painful. I've run the gamut of AFO's and nothing really works. I'm very athletic, including competitive rowing, and wish to keep at it. Rowing requires driving off your feet. Would the SP be suitable? Also how do I submit my MD's scrip for Medicare? Can't get through on your '800' number.
    • Arthur
      You will not be able to do anything active in the SP Walker. This is for immobilization of the foot and ankle. I would suggest the Velocity Ankle Brace either moderate support of extra support. The brace has a hinge which should help prevent laterl movment while being in a shoe. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace
  • Garry at 8/15/2015 10:48 PM
    • I ruptured my achilles tendon and have had surgery. I'm in the second phase of a cast with my next phase being a walking boot. Could you recommend a walking boot that I would need? I want to show my doctor and see if they will allow me to use. I'm a size 9 shoe and wonder what size I would need. My leg has atrophied some since my surgery. Thank you.
    • Garry
      The MaxTrax Air Walking Boot wold work gret for you and it comes either with or without a hinge. The hinge is used to restrict ankle movement if you doctor wants to do that once you come out of cast. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-maxtrax-rom-air-walker
  • Vandy at 7/31/2015 1:03 PM
    • I was considering this support but was concerned about calf size. Shoe size I am looking at needing a Medium but was concerned as I have a large diameter calf. 17"
    • The pnuematic air cells allow for a customized fit and can accommodate a larger calf size.
  • Nick at 6/18/2015 3:57 AM
    • Does this cast work for Charcot foot?
    • Hello,
      Thank you for your question you can use the Aircast SP Walking Boot for Charcot foot.
  • Kate at 5/1/2015 3:00 PM
    • I sprained and tore ligaments in my big toe. I cant put weight on it and its been about 2 weeks since the injury. Ive been walking on the side of my foot. My question is, would it help me if i got this?
    • Kate
      Yes the AirCast SP Walking Boot will help you to get around with less pain because it immobilizes the foot so it doesn not bend with walking and this will decrease pain
  • Megan at 11/17/2014 2:17 PM
    • How is the traction on the soles of these walking casts? Good enough to be safe when walking on snow/ice?
    • Megan
      The Aircast boots do have a sole that should be stable in most environments. I can tell you that the Aircast Air Select Short has a sole that is more designed similar to tennis shoe sole and may be more non-slip that the SP Walker. http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airselect-short-walking-boot
  • Rita at 10/18/2014 9:20 AM
  • Laura at 8/18/2014 6:07 PM
    • Doctor told me I have a bruised bone on my outer ankle. He recommended the Aircast boot. When I apply the pressure with the air it hurts bad and I can't lift the boot. Am I doing something wrong? Should I put more air in until it doesn't hurt? Thanks in advance.
    • Laura
      If the pressure of the air bladder causes pain, do not inflate the side that hurts, or do not inflate as much air. The air is for comfort, swelling and overall fit of the boot but it doesn't have to be used
  • Donna Sterling at 6/24/2014 6:26 PM
    • Is this boot suitable for being in an MRI environment with their heavy magnetic field?
    • Donna
      The boot should not be worn in a MRI but if you work in the area it should be fine to wear
  • billy at 5/7/2014 4:43 PM
    • is it good for badly sprained ankles?
    • Billy
      For badly sprained ankles the Aircast FP Walker would be best. It will immobilize your ankle and allow you to walk without as much pain.
  • cloe at 5/6/2014 6:17 PM
    • I wear a womans 6 what size should I get?

  • Jean at 3/20/2014 7:49 AM
    • I feel and sprained my foot and ankle..my ligaments and tendons have been strained ..I was wondering if this boot would be helpful ?
    • Jean
      If you sprained your ankle as well as your foot the Aircast FP Walker would be the best choice for you.http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-fp-walking-brace For ankle injuries the immobilization needs to extend beyond the lower calf.
  • K at 3/16/2014 7:53 AM
    • My son is a 11 and a size 5.5 shoe. What size do I get for his walking cast? Also, I need quickly. If I order on Monday can I receive by Weds? Finally, he needs one for each foot. Are there left and right foot air casts or are they one and the same?
    • I would say the small. The length from heel to toe for the small is 10.4 " a youth 5.5 length is 9 1/8". Right now if you order expeditied shipping you may get it thursday
  • Susan at 12/27/2013 9:53 PM
    • Can I buy the front plastic insert that fits on the top of foot as mine has cracked where thecast bends to fit the change in angle from leg too foot. I am size medium and do not want to buy whole boot
    • Susan
      That part is not available through the website. We will have to get in touch with the DJO rep for your area. They can order that for you . We would need to know what country you live in if not the US.
  • Cyndy at 12/7/2013 7:45 PM
    • I just started 2 days ago to wear the brace and I am so sore on either side of my calf. I have tried adjusting the air, wearing a higher sock but to no avail I am rubbed raw. Good thing is my foot feels better when I wear it. 5th metatarsal stress fracture. I stand 10 hours a day so maybe this "walking" cast is not for prolong hours. Please help.
    • Cyndy
      Thank you for contacting product support. If the boot is fitting correctly there should not be any excess movment in the top of the boot. Try inflating more air to remove movement of the heel and tightening the straps so the leg doesn't move against the side of the boot. If this doesn't work please contact product support at 888-405-3251
  • Dominic at 11/26/2013 12:53 AM
    • I have broken the 3rd and 4th metertarsal bones in my foot with partial displacement but no surgery, I have a fibre glass cast at the moment would this brace be suitable thanks dom Brisbane
    • Dominic,
      The AirCat SP Walking Brace may be the next step for you after your cast is removed. Indications for this walker include but are not limited to; Metatarsal fracture; Forefoot and midfoot injury; Acute or post-operative use; Bunionectomy; Soft tissue injury. It would be best to speak with your doctor to see what the post cast recommendation would be. Thank you for your question and for contacting DJO.

    • Hi
      My dr recommended getting this for a fracture in the 5th metatarsal will this help rectify and how long should I keep my foot in this for? I just heard that it comes with a pump can you explain what the pump is for? And how is the proper way to use this device for maximum effectiveness. And where is the item shipped from thank you kindly
    • Nick
      Thank you for contacting product support. You should continue to wear the boot until your physician tells you to stop wearing it. The Aircast SP Walking Brace has two air bladders one on each side of the boot. There is a valve on each side in which you use the pump to blow air into these bladders. The air is pumped into the bladder to provide comfort and a snug fit for the boot. You have a broken bone in your foot so we want to limit the movement of your foot while it is healing. You should not pump so much air into the boot so that you feel numbness or tingling in your toes, it should feel comfortable. All international orders ship from Mexico
  • Randa at 10/2/2013 9:19 AM
    • I have been diagnosed with an ankle stress fracture and prescribed the aircasst boot. Dr also recommended the use of Fragmin, to avoid deep vein thrombosis. I am 55 . Is this normal?
      I have no history of thrombosis at all.
    • Randa
      I unfortunatly can only answer any questions related to you aircast SP walking boot which is indicated for your ankle and foot injuries. If you need something with alittle more support we also have the Aircast FP walking boot which is a little taller. If you have any questions about medication that you have been prescribed you should talk to your physician. If you have anymore product related questions please don't hesitate to contact me. thank you for contacting Product Support.

    • Will the paediatric Aircast SP Walking Brace fit a toddler with a child size 9-10 foot? There is quite a difference between children's sizes and a men's size 4.
      Alternatively do you have a product suitable for a child with a greenstick fracture on the second metatarsal?
    • Hello Amanda,

      Most of our Pediatric Boots are comparable to a womens size 4. Please look at the links below, our MaxTrax is the smallest boot available.

  • Jace at 5/12/2013 5:50 PM
    • Will the air cast help a broken foot?
    • Hello, Jace -

      I believe this question was asked and answered already. The Aircast Walkers are worn post injury and is designed to immobilize the foot during healing. I'm a little unclear what you mean by "help a broken foot".

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

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • Jace at 5/11/2013 10:25 AM
    • Will this foot brace help for a broken foot
    • Hello, Jace -

      When someone suffers from a broken foot, this walker is indeed one that is recommended. I'm a little unclear what you mean about it "helping", but people do wear this brace post-injury to keep the foot immobilized during their healing phase.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • Abigail at 3/19/2013 6:09 AM
    • I have a really big calf muscle/leg would this boot fit and be comfortable?
    • That depends on the size of your calf. If you go to our website and type in your zip code, you can find the information to the Aircast Rep in your area, they will have samples and can help fit you with the correct size walking boot, they can show you how it can be widened as well. Here is that link to the rep locator: http://www.djoglobal.com/contact-us/sales-rep-locator
  • Tony at 11/26/2012 1:22 AM
    • My foot size is exactly 10 (male). Should I get large in case?
    • Hello, Tony -

      You should be fine with the Medium. The foot base has generous space in there for dressings and such so that will allow extra space for those people who overlap sizes from the M to L like in your case.

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

      Thank you and have a great day!
  • Ruth at 8/2/2012 8:16 AM
    • I have been given an aircast for a fractured toe. (from the podiatrist) Can you please tell me the height of the heel. I have hip and neck issues and need to find a shoe / sneaker that will be easy to walk in with the boot.

      I currently had on Asic running sneakers and these were too low according to the doctor.
      Looking for some safe options.

    • You could buy a ProCare Even Up shoe balancer to wear on the opposite foot's shoe. Here is the link to that product : http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-evenup-shoe-balancer
  • Darrah at 7/20/2012 1:44 AM
    • Hi,
      I have advanced hallux rigidus in my left foot which is making walking severely painful. I also have hallux limitus in my right foot and have to use a cane as the combined pain of both feet has thrown my balance off and my back bit out as I have a bad limp when I walk. I might have to go into an AirCast boot for my left foot prior to surgery due to the pain, but I have to wear a stiff-soled rocker bottom shoe on my right foot to handle that foot's pain (so running shoes are not an option). Currently I'm wearing an MBT sandal on my left foot, but my balance is so bad that I can't wear it on my other foot; I wear the Dansko clog, but the disparity between the heights of both shoes is causing severe problems. My concerns are: a) is wearing the AirCast for months prior to surgery and post-surgery going to further throw my back out? b) what shoe do I wear on the other foot - and what should the heel height be? c) could I get by with the short walking boot, or would I need the full walking boot? Many thanks! Darrah
    • Hello Darrah,
      Tyhank you for contacting DJO Global. We do sell a product called the even up with goes on the opposite shoe of the foot you are wearing in the boot. You can find that product at this website : http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-evenup-shoe-balancer
  • Padraic McNamara at 7/16/2012 10:14 AM

    • It is submersible, it just needs to be rinsed with tap water and air dryed after you get out of the water

    • This may be a dumb question; my doctor just put me in this boot yesterday; I have a lisfranc injury. When I wear slacks, should I tuck the pant leg into the boot or let it sit on top of the boot?

    • Tuck them inside the boot unless you can fit them normally over the boot.
  • Alli at 4/4/2012 11:55 AM
    • Hi,

      I wear a women's shoe size 11 and my feet are narrow to medium. What size should I get in the brace?
    • Medium
  • Nicole at 2/6/2012 7:24 PM
    • I had to start wearing the Aircast SP walking brace today because of an injury on my left foot. I’m wondering what I’m supposed to do when it rains or snows. Can I still wear the boot outside in that type of weather? If so, how do I protect my foot from getting wet because I can only wear a sock while wearing the aircast?

    • We do make a weather cover for rain and snow. It can be used with any of our boots.

    • depending on how sever a doctor will try to immoblize the foot, the Aircast SP walker is a great option for this.
  • Promod at 8/16/2011 2:44 PM
    • I will be asked to wear boots after my Achilles surgery for bone spurs removal. Are there any distinct advantages of using AirCast SP over FP model?
    • The SP walker is for foot fractures and injuries the FP walker is better for ankle and lower leg injuries so I'd reccomend that for you.
  • Brett at 7/6/2011 12:00 PM
    • Does this walker come with the AirCast sock liner, as indicated on the accessories page?
    • No those do not come with a sock. Only the XP and FP walkers come with socks.

  • maria at 5/28/2011 4:33 PM
    • Is the liner machine washable?
    • Hey Maria,
      Yes, the inner liner is washable. You want to wash the liner by hand and air dry. Please pay close attention as you take the liner out so that you will know how to put the liner back in. Many times people forget how it went in the boot and cannot put it back in.

      Thanks
  • Ginny Brewton at 4/8/2011 11:20 AM
    • My orthopedic Dr. put me in the Aircast SP walker for a broken ankle. Do I need to wear it in bed too? It's not comfortable for sleeping!
    • Hey Ginny,
      Unfortunately I can not answer that question for you. That has to be your doctor who makes that decision. I can tell you that most doctors do want their patients with broken ankles to wear the walker at all times. If your doctor does tell you that you have to wear it in bed, I recommend sleeping on your back and propping pillows on the side of the boot so that it is supported. I hopet his helps.

      Thanks
  • Julie at 4/1/2011 1:17 PM
    • Can these be worn on either foot or are they L/R specific?

    • Does The Aircast SP Walking Brace work for the metatarsal fracture?my 2nd,3rd,4th metatarsal broke after surgery Dr said that i can't walk until 4 month.it was too tempting....
    • The Aircast SP walking brace is for Metatarsal fractures. The brace is short, cause it is specifically for foot injuries. With the aircell design, it helps taking of some of the pressure and weight on the injured areas to allow them to heal, while still trying to be somewhat functional in your day to day activities.
  • Bob at 3/12/2011 5:41 PM

    • Can you do lower body weight training in these braces?
    • Jeremy,
      Thank you for taking the time to email us here at www.betterbraces.com regarding our AirCast SP Walking Brace and doing weight training in it. First of all, this is a question for your doctor, therapist, or athletic trainer who's overseeing your rehabilitation protocol. Functionally, the boot would hold up but you should ask your clinician if you are supposed to be doing specific weight training or rehabilitation exercises with the injury or diagnosis you have. If you have any additional questions please do not hesistate to contact us again.

    • Does this work for a Avulsion fibula brake of ankle
    • We recommend wearing either the Aircast FP or XP Walker for this type injury. The Aircast SP Walker is ideally suited for foot fractures/injuries. The XP or FP Walker's will provide more support and stability for you.

No arch support!

Reviewed by:
Quality
Just received this but immediately realize there is no support for my arch so will have to adapt with purchased arch support and see how it feels then.

Wow! Wish I had known about your site!

I injured my left foot a short while ago. The doctor called it a sprain, but said a chunk of bone was pulled off when the ligament pulled away from my midfoot. I thought this was an avulsion fracture, but hey, I never saw the xray. Anyway, I wish I had known about this site sooner! The charge for the brace from the doctor's office was almost $400, and with my insurance, I ended up paying about$100 out of pocket for the brace alone. The only difference between the one from there and the one on your site is that the doctor's office had their name put on the strap over the foot. I would have rather not have paid to have the "privilege" of advertising for them.
The brace has been great. I started with 2 crutches for the first couple of days, and went to just one., which has merely been used for when I'm tired for the last few days. It can be a little awkward, but it is so much better than a stinky cast that won't let you scratch an itch. I wear Merrell Jungle Mocs most of the time, so the heights are about the same so I'm not walking like a penguin. I expect to be allowed to graduate to no more boot within the week, but I am quite happy with how easy it has been to get around.
I will keep your site in mind in case I ever need another brace for anything else!

Freedom

Reviewed by:

I couldn't wait until I received a walking cast. This gave me a sense of freedom and safety. I liked the inflation on each side to customize the fit as the swelling ceased. It wasn't incredible heavy either and didn't take long to get the hang of walking in it.

These are great

I recently broke bones in both of feet, and the Ortho DR sent me home with two of these walker braces.. Couldn't be happier, put these on and I am walking everywhere. Love that you inflate them to the comfort level that you need. Feel a little heavy, but my feet do not move around in them, and are great that you can take them off to get a shower and not have to sleep in a hard cast. Everyone says they look like ski boots, oh I wish, but I think that I will heal much faster wearing these instead of a hard cast.

Awesome

After slipping on the ice at work, I sustained some pretty sore tendons and ligaments in my foot. I was offered this boot and a post-op shoe. Previous experience with heel surgeries told me to go with the AirCast. Great decision! Now I can go back to work with minimal pain!

did not meet expectations

I thought that this aircast would be easier to move in, it is bulky and heavier than the fibre glass one I had. I kinda wish I would have left the fibre glass one on just because it was easier to move in.
I wish I had better reviews.

Hi, I was watching the video and readings my comments which made me decide to buy an aircast. I've had heel/foot/ankle issues for over a year when I sprained it in march of 2012. Thank you!!!

Plantar Fasciitis

Reviewed by:
Quality
I got this several months ago after developing plantar fasciitis. I love this walking brace and use it at work daily. I walk more then three miles at work as a security guard and am able to use this on stairs. I highly recommend this and I love that I had the option to get this instead of using crutches. My foot feels wonderful in it and I feel no foot pain. I just found this website and love the fact that they sell replacement parts as I'm about to buy right now. :) I also love that I do not find it heavy and that my foot does not move around in it due to the air pockets that you can inflate. I was worried my pant leg would not fit over it and they wouldn't allow me to wear it at work but my jeans and work slacks do fit over it perfectly with no problems. Only down fall will be when it rains and when winter comes, summer time its perfect and my foot does not sweat in it for as much walking as I do. I have larger calves and have no problem with it fitting. I found out the tighter it is the better your foot feels and doesn't move. Also your foot is protected by the top part of the boot which is hard because you will hit things with it. After awhile you won't even realize that you have it on.
Hope you find it as wonderful as I do.

Fantastic!!!

Reviewed by:

I have several hairline fractures in my foot that I happened just because of overuse. This boot is fantastic, it is a little heavy, but not compared to an actual cast. My foot immediately felt better, I could actually walk. And what is great is that you can adjust the air to you're comfort level and what feels good to you, versus a cast that is just there. I highly recommend this boot, it is comfortable, the only problem I've found with it is that it is a little heavy. Other then that it it just fantastic!
