Aircast XP Walking Brace reviews
I sprained my ankle and wore one of these for 2 weeks. It sped up my healing time and was extremely comfortable to wear. The compression made the swelling go down a lot faster. - Camwalker Fanatic
very comfortable and supportive......size runs small though.....size chart said I'd need a medium (women's 8-11) - my shoe size usually runs 9 1/2 -10 , my toes are right at the edge of the brace, so be aware of the size you pick....otherwise...no complaints!!! - Chris
hurt a lot
I broke my foot in 2 places when... i was put in on of the casts... it was comfortable but tiring after 3 months. I like it and it was a great deal as well. - hurt a lot
I have been wearing this brace for almost two years off and on for an Achilles injury and have found it to be very comfortable and easy to use. I have done everything one can think of during this time and it hardly ever gets in the way once you get used to it. Watch out on wet floors, water and the treads just don't mix well. - Paul
Got my brace Monday so far I like it a lot better then the one the doctor gave me to use. It's custom fit makes walking around on a broken foot a lot easier. The socks that it comes with stretch easy and slip over the toes without much pressure at all. The only part I don't like about it is how the front valve is setup. Mine came half under the front plate. Still usable but harder to get to then the ones on the side or the back. If they would make the front like those It would get 5 stars from me. - Alan
it is very easy and i feel so comfortable using it!, the size chart is a little off, i am a size 7 woman and i am using a medium. it fits perfectly! - kat

This boot has saved my foot 8yrs ago. now this year helped save my leg and foot. Very comfortable to wear. Yes, you definetly have to watch wet floors it dont mix well with water. - Genny
I sprained my left ankle and the aircast walking brace makes walking alot easier.It's very comfortable and the ball inflater is easy to use - stevebudz
I fractured my ankle and am in one of these. I have to use crutches and this is very light and easy to use. My only complaint is that my heel moves around a bit in the heel, no matter what I do to try and adjust it. But otherwise, it's great :) - :)
I like this aircast for the most part. I have used other boots that had much less support. This aircast is very comfortable overall. I am having a bit of problems with the front panel. It may be my calf and leg is too big. The top strap keeps sliding down. Overall great product! - Mickster
I fractured my ankle about 2 weeks ago and the hospital gave me another brace to wear while waiting for some MRIs to be done. It was heavy and put stress on my foot right at the fracture point. I couldnt get any sleep at night because it would shift and cause a lot of pain. So I started looking online and found Betterbraces. After reading the reviews and calling customer service I settled on the Aircast XP. They made a special effort to get it out the same day (Friday) for me so I had it first thing Monday morning! And I mean FIRST thing. UPS was at my door at 8am with it.
The brace itself is amazing! I am tall (6'3") and it comes far enough up my calf to take the stress off the fracture in my ankle. It has 4 independently adjustable air cells so I can inflate each to snug it up just enough not to flop around but still feel supportive.
My girlfriend broke her foot last year at the same time and she is so jealous of this boot compared to the thing she wore too.
Highly recommend this brace and the people at Betterbraces!
I fractured my ankle about 2 weeks ago. I have been using a walking brace the hospital gave me while I am having some MRIs done. That brace was clunky, not very supportive, and only came part way up my calf leaving most of its weight hanging on my ankle causing a lot of pain. Finally fed up, I started looking online fore alternatives. After reading the reviews and speaking with customer service at Betterbraces.com I settled on the Aircast XP brace. I ordered it on a Friday for over night delivery. The crew at BB made sure it went out that same day and UPS was at my door at 8am Monday morning with it as promised.
I am a fairly tall guy at 6'3" and the Aircast XP comes about 3/4 the way up my calf providing way more support than my old brace. The 4 independently adjustable air cells (1 on front of calf, 1 on back of calf, and 1 on each side of lower leg/ankle) inflate to provide a snug secure feel. Where my last brace felt sloppy this one is very comfortable! The doc said I needed to keep my foot at a 90 degree angle in the brace yet the old brace they gave me was always lose. The XP holds my ankle at a 90 very securely.
I would highly recommend Aircast XP and the people at Betterbraces! Thanks!
I broke my lower leg and ankle in 3 places. After surgery to put things together again with a plate and several screws I spent a tortuous 6 weeks in a traditional cast. The hospital put me into the Aircast XP walker after the cast. And it was like a dream come true. Completely adjustable to the level of support I want on different days. I can also take it off for bathing and sleeping at night. It is a little heavier than I thought it would be but is well built solid. The socks are an extra long medium weight tube sock with terry cloth type lining that comes up to and over the knee and can then be folded over and back down a little at the top. After physical therapy, if one part of my ankle is sore, I can reduce the air on that side so there is a little less pressure and lighter contact on that side for a few hours. Highly recommended. - LyndyB
Never had any broken bones before so I don't know how to compare this to other casts. It is comfortable on my broken ankle though. My main wish is that the toe flaps were removeable because my foot gets so hot and is wet from sweating. Also my doctor never gave me any socks to go with this so I am just wearing thin cotton ones to absorb the moisture. - Molly
Boot was worn for 6 weeks to heal broken ankle. Comfortable except for ridge on gray foam liner on bottom of inside boot. My toes would cramp after walking but snipping off the ridge made it perfect. - Katrina
