Product Details

Product Description

The Aircast AirSelect Elite is a walking boot, engineered to provide protection, comfort, and edema control.

  • Stable fracture of foot/ankle/lower leg
  • Severe ankle sprain
  • Post-operative immobilization
  • Reduction of edema (swelling)

The Elite has a durable, semi-rigid shell that helps support the limb while providing full-shell protection. Overlapping Duplex aircells line the shell providing intermittent pneumatic compression for edema reduction. The front panel is pre-inflated and combined with the overlapping aircells, provides a 'total contact' fit. SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock, while the light weight rocker sole combine to encourage a natural gait and a continuation of everyday activities.

Features & Benefits

  • Integrated inflation system (NO separate hand bulb). Integrated inflation system puts the patient in control for an individualized fit.
  • Non-marking, skid resistant rubber tread. For greater traction and longer wear
  • Duplex technology
  • SoftStrike technology. Absorbs and dissipates the energy during heel strike. Reduction of heel pain
  • Low profile optimized rocker sole. The rocker sole, enables a normal walking gait with less forefoot angulations' and reduces hyperextension of the knee.
  • Toe-off section continues the rocking motion, enhancing mobility. Mid-stance section is designed to minimize hip differential
  • Trimmable and heat moldable semi-rigid shell. Makes it easy to custom-fit the brace to the patient for a more comfortable fit. Sleek, open-frame design provides ventilation and patient protection and compliance. Shell contours around the malleoli, eliminating pressure for sustained comfort. AirSelect boots have improved width around the ankle area as well as uniformed sizing throughout the various sizes of the boot (XS-XL).
  • Three-strap system. Evenly disperses pressure and helps reduce pooling of edema. Ease of application.
  • Warnings/Precautions

    Do not over-inflate aircells. Improper aircell inflation may cause significant skin irritation, especially in people with diabetic neuropathy (a diabetic nerve condition). Check your skin frequently for "hot spots" and skin irritation. If you see any skin changes or feelings of discomfort, reduce the aircell compression. Do not use this device if you cannot feel sensations whether due to post-op anesthesia, nerve, skin or other conditions. Use caution when walking on slippery or wet surfaces to avoid injury.

    • What's the difference between the short elite and the regular elite? I seriously broke the side of my right foot (below the baby toe) and have not been able to walk on it for over 6 weeks. I'll be getting the cast off soon and don't like the walking boot my dr carries. I'm looking at getting the elite but wondered which one is better the short or taller one. Also I wear a 10.5 shoe (women's) and have a bigger sized calf which size do you recommend? Thank you!
    • The difference between the Short Elite and the Standard Elite, is the length that it goes up on your calf. The short is shorter, and the Standard is just below the knee. You would fit in to a size medium.
  • Stacey at 5/27/2016 3:29 PM
    • I fit in kids snow boots so I bought an extra small in the air cast elite. The top of my big toe is off the front of the cast and you can see my sock at the sides of the boot. Is this okay? Or is the boot too small?
    • Your toe should not be hanging over the footbed of the boot. Please see that attached fitting video for an example of how the boot should fit. http://www.djoglobal.com/products/aircast/airselect-short
  • Eric at 4/21/2016 6:34 AM
    • Just got my boot yesterday 2 weeks after surgery for ruptured Achilles. I slept with it on last night, and when I woke up, the air chambers were nearly empty. Is it normal to have to pump back up after several hours, or do I have a slow leak somewhere?
    • Normally the air should not leak out. If this continues you should take it back to the place you recieved and get it replaced
  • Mari at 4/11/2016 4:40 PM
    • Is the Airicast XP or the Airiest Airselect Elite better for people suffering from achilles tendonitis and heel spurs?
    • Both boots would work fine for those conditions. The Elite Is a lighter boot and you do not need to carry a pump around with you since the pump is located on the side of the boot. The elite may be more convienent
  • Sean at 3/26/2016 9:05 AM
    • I had surgery done on my right ankle and came out of a cast then placed into this boot for a couple months. I currently have a plate and six screws in my ankle. My job consists of alot of standing and walking. I'm in need of a brace that would offer me similar support as this boot did. Need some guidance on which brace to purchase. Thank you.
    • The most supportive ankle brace we carry is the Velocity ankle brace. The brace comes in three different support styles from Light support to Extra support. It is a hinged ankle brace that fits into a shoe.
  • Gena at 2/29/2016 6:36 AM
    • I recently purchased a medium FP Aircast but I think it may be to small because my toe comes to the very edge of the boot but does not hang over. I wear a women's size 11 shoe and was afraid that the large might have been to big. Should I go with the larger size or is this fit just fine. I purchased the FP but was thinking of getting the Elite, I have a fractured Tibia and torn ligaments which Aircast better accommodates this injury?
    • As long as your toes are not hanging off the end you will be ok in this size. If your toes hang off then you will want to go up to the next size.
  • Taylor at 12/30/2015 9:52 PM
    • I have subluxation of my peroneal tendons and have surgery after this semster of college. What tall boot would you recommend that will be the MOST durable as I have had this issue for almost two years now and have gone through many of your boots!
    • The AirSelect elite walking boot is going to be a very sturdy boot that has 3 air chambers to help with controlling edema and providing protection of the foot and ankle. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airselect-elite
  • Willie at 12/23/2015 5:26 AM
    • I have a non-displaced fracture in my right fibula and was fitted with an aircast elite walking boot. I was told that I can wear this same cast to bed and to cover it up since it was used indoors/outdoors. I was wondering if there is a softer more comfortable cast model that can be used for sleeping. Otherwise I will probably wish to purchase another aircast just for sleeping. The thought of wearing an outside boot to bed is not to my taste.
    • we do not have a softer walking boot only the boots that are on our website. If you want to wear something else to bed you should speak to your physician about something different.
  • Hillary at 12/21/2015 11:44 AM
    • I have several severe breaks in my leg, ankle and foot. I have been NWB for the past three months. I will begin putting weight on my leg next month. I have a rather large calf and small foot and I am having trouble finding a boot that fits. What is the best boot for me?
    • The MaxTrax Walking boot will fit bigger calves better than the Aircast because of it's soft liner instead of a hard shell. The uprights can be molded to a wader calf. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-maxtrax-walker
  • Robbie at 8/9/2015 7:10 PM
    • Which boot is best for a ruptured Achilles tendon?
    • Robbie
      Any of the boots can and are used with an Achillies rupture but you may want to look at the Don Joy MaxTrax Air ROM Walker. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-maxtrax-rom-air-walker
      This boot has a hinge so if your doctor wants you to limit some of your ankle motion so that you do not stretch your Achillies tendon once it is repaired
  • Kacey at 6/10/2015 9:18 PM
    • Hello, what size of calf will the X-Large Airselect Elite accommodate?
    • The Aircast AirSelect Elite will accommodate up to about 17in calf circumference.
  • carley at 4/25/2015 11:41 AM
    • How can I was the aircast elite? Most of the foam insides can come out but it is attached at the back where the air goes in. Please help
    • Carley
      YOu can't take the padding or liner out so you will have to wash by hand with mild soap and water aand let air dry.
  • Chris at 3/25/2015 6:10 PM
    • What is the difference between the air select elite and the standard?
    • Chris
      The Air Select Elite has aircels, right, left and posterior. The Standard has two right and left. That is the only difference between the two braces
  • Rod at 3/21/2015 2:41 PM
    • I have recently fractured both bones in my ankle at the joint. i have had surgery and my ankle is now held together with plates and screws. My surgeon says I cannot have any weight on the ankle for at least two months.
      Does the Air Cast boot eliminate any weight bearing from the ankle? In other words, can I use this boot , or another product, to safely protect my ankle from weight bearing and walk with this product?
    • Rod
      The AirSelect Walking boot will immobilize the ankle but in order to be Non-wieght bearing you will have to stay of your foot. To be non-weight bearing you will have to use crutches of a walker to get around and not put any wieght on the foot.

    • What boot would you recommend for a stress reaction of the navicular bone? My 11-year old daughter is currently using a MaxTrax Air Walker Boot, but it appears to me that your brand would be better, as she would not have to manually inflate it every time. It also looks like your boot may provide a faster edema relief.

    • The Max Trax Air Walker is our boot as well and will provide the same support and compression as the Air Cast.
  • ryan at 10/11/2014 8:43 PM
    • I currently am using the Aircast AirSelect Elite and the upper velcro strap broke. Can this strap be purchased to be replaced?
    • Ryan
      There is a strap replacement kit available through DJO direct 800-336-6569
  • J at 6/7/2014 9:53 AM
    • Two questions:
      -Is the "Elite" significantly better than the XP?
      -I wear a size 14 shoe and have worn the XP before in a large. It fit well, but my toes stuck out a bit. Is the extra-large a more appropriate size?
    • The Elite is a lighter boot and the sole of the boot has been re-designed to not be as high and a new non-skid sole. If your toes were hanging off you may need a XL
  • Diane Musser at 2/17/2014 8:29 PM
    • Is the AirCast AirSelect Elite appropriate for triple arthrodesis (bone fusing)? I already own the AirCast Pneumatic from the previous surgery but I'm intrigued with the thinner sole (easier on my back as I walk) and pneumatic massaging feature in the AirSelect Elite to help with swelling and hasten healing.

      Also, what is the weight of the AirSelect Elite size medium?

      Thank you so much for your time.

    • Thank you for your question. The walking boot can be used in your situation. It is best to seek the advice of your physician before using this. The ideal weight limit for the medium boot is 300 lb.
  • Stephen Ryan at 2/8/2014 5:47 PM
    • I have had a complete foot drop since W.W. II. There is a 100% paralysis of the peroneal nerve, residuals of gunshot wounds, popliteal space, right leg. Would this device be appropriate for my disability, and would there be an opportunity to see it and test it prior to purchase?
    • Stephen
      This boot will help you walk without a foot drop but it is a bulky boot and not usually used long-term. Another option is the Procare Super lite AFO: https://www.betterbraces.com/procare-super-lite-afo
      This goes into your shoe and can be worn daily. We do not have trial period for our products however we do have a 90 day money back guarentee on the BetterBraces Website.
  • James Long at 1/22/2014 10:02 PM
    • What is the weight limit on this cast?
      Can the foam part be removed to be washed?
    • James
      The ideal weight limits are as follows:
      >>>> XS - 250lbs
      >>>> S - 300lbs
      >>>> M - 300lbs
      >>>> L - 350lbs
      >>>> XL - 350lbs

      The blue liner cannot be removed as it is attached to the air bladder hoses
  • Fran at 12/9/2013 12:20 PM
  • MKara Rejo at 12/1/2013 12:16 PM
    • Doctor San Giovanni, recommended to wear this type of boot for 2 months without removal, after a surgery, but the problem was that they created a Blister in my ankle, and ended up with antibiotics and expensive cream to apply in the wounded are, went to see the Dermatology once a week due to the severe infection. The AirCast must come with instructions just in case, a blister ot other condition to check foot area once a day, specially at night, it should be part of the healing process. Thank you Mara Rejo

    very happy with ..

    Reviewed by:
    i like my boot. I feel a lot 'safer' with it on. I've been told to discontinue using the boot. Reason: It does not allow any moisture control. I have multiple compound factures' of both the tibia and fibula, with a Large wound from the bones tearing thru the muscle and skin. No matter how many layers of bandage and 'socks' . The lower leg (ankle to mid calf) is always moist. Causing Me to develop a very nasty infection. Keep your leg dry, somehow, then it is a real leg/foot saver. I'm very impressed with this cast. would definitely recommend this to most(i'm not a doctor).
    Pros: light, stable, very supporting, easy to clean the outside, durable. the air system Works. Hasn't sprung an air leak for 7 weeks now. it does what it supposed to do..
    Cons: not breathable, hard to clean the 'inside', a lot of the padding isn't removable. The velcro that holds the inside pieces in place, really sux. When the Velcro fails the pads move and can allow the hard shell to dig into your leg. Those are the only 2 things that come to mind that are not so good. For me, the Pro's far out weigh the Con's. I still recommend this cast..
