The Aircast Airheel ankle brace is specifically designed to help treat heel pain and bottom of foot pain. When you wear this brace, it applies pulsating, pneumatic compression under the arch of your foot and on your Achilles tendon.
The Aircast AirHeel is equipped with two interconnected aircells, located under the foot arch and in back of the Achilles tendon. When you take a step, the first air chamber (under the arch) begins to collapse, thus reducing the stress to the plantar fascia (the ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes). Air is forced into the chamber surrounding the Achilles tendon which then inflates. The inflated Achilles chamber applies compression to the Achilles tendon to reduce strain on the tendon.
This technology helps to minimize swelling and enhance circulation. It’s especially suited for people who suffer from plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis. Here’s what our customers have to say about the Aircast Airheel ankle support:
