    • I have just spent nine weeks in an Aircast boot to heal a ruptured Achilles Tendon - the next three weeks I am supposed to be out of the Aircast and wearing my own shoes BUT with three Aircast wedges inserted. I find them almost impossible to walk on - it feels like trying to walk on a pebble beach with no shoes on! They're crippling me - please tell me - are they ONLY for use in an Aircast boot during the no-weight bearing stage or am I supposed to suffer this almost impossible to stand on pain ? Have I been given the wrong inserts? Many thanks for your guidance! Francis Haines
    • The Aircast Heel Wedge is only to be worn inside the Aircast Walking Boots, they are not meant to be worn inside your normal shoes. We advise you speak with your doctor for guidance on what brace or support you need now that you are out of the boot,

    • I am post achilles rupture repair. It has 5 wedges for my boot size the doctor was only going to use three but to maintain the flex I have been in I needed all 5, why is there only 3 for the XL and 5 for all the others?

      Next should the knee with the cast be bent or elevated with the boot on?

      I am partial weight bearing with crutches what is the best way to navigate stairs with the boot with the bent knee?
    • Shay
      I would suggest that you see your medical professional if you need gait training with the boot on and allowed to have partial weight bearing. The boot does not effect your knee so you can either bend it or keep it straight depending on your comfort level. I unfortunately do not have a reason why there are only 3 wedges in the XL but I will be seeking this information from the product manager.

    • I have the air cast boot and my heel pain hurts when I walk in it. Does anyone know if these would help with that? Thanks!
    • Norma
      The heel wedges will not cushion the heel. These silicone heel cups might be better they are soft and used for heel pain. http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-silicone-heel-cups

    • how do i clean my wedges?
    • To wash the Aircast Heel Wedge you can take a wet cloth and wipe it clean with a little bit of mild soap, then let them air dry.
  • Toni at 8/2/2014 6:00 AM
    • Hi, I think the question is not really complete answered.

      When I should remove a wedge, witch wedge must be replaced:

      - the large one in the bottom

      or

      - the small one in the top ??

      kr Toni
    • Toni
      Do not remove a wedge without your physician telling to do so. then you should remove the bottom first and work your way up
  • Marsh at 3/9/2014 3:54 PM
    • When it's time to remove a wedge, do you start with the top wedge and work down, or does it matter?
    • Marsh
      You can replace any wedge, they are all the same thickness.
