    • Hey does this work for a sprain ankle?
    • This would be for a high level ankle sprain that requires the ankle to be immobilized while still being able to walk around.
  • Linda Kennedy at 3/5/2016 6:52 AM
    • what type of fiber lining is in the air brace. I'm allergic to many and need 100% cotton. can that be possible?
    • The liner is polyester, I'm sorry we do not have anything that is 100% cotton
  • H. reiner at 10/12/2015 10:23 AM
    • The air pump quit working on my wife's Maxtrax air ankle walker. Is there anything I can do or check.
    • The liner needs to be replaced. If the boot is under warranty the liner can be replaced at no charge. Take the boot back to wear it was purchased to see if it is under warranty
  • Joanne at 9/20/2015 8:27 AM
    • I have the Maxtrax air ankle walker and would like to find a shoe to wear on the other foot that levels out my walking - can you send the heel height or the boot or recommended heel height for my other foot? Any suggestions on wear to get a shoe woud be greatly appreciated.

    • Joanne
      The heel is an 1" thick so that is the height you will need on the opposite foot to keep even. We have a product that you can attache to any pair of shoes that is called the Evenup. https://www.betterbraces.com/procare-evenup-shoe-balancer

    • Hello, I have purchased several braces. What is the difference between the walking brace, and the one with the dial on the side of that walking boot. They are similar can you please advise. Thank you.
    • Lydia
      The Walking boot with the dial is the AirSelect Walking boots which are our newest boot. Some of our boots can be inflated with air to provide compression to decrease swelling. Our older Air Cast boots had a blue pump that would inflate the boots aircels. The Air Select boots have the air pump built in to the side of the boot so you do not have to carry a pump with you. the dial selects the chambers that you will inflate so that you can have different amounts of pressure in different aircels. This fluctuates compression

    • My wife is using a Maxtrax Air Ankle walker for a second go around. The insert is beginning to tear in one place. Is it possible to purchase this separately rather than replacing the whole boot & what would be the proceedure / cost ?
    • Gary
      You can order a replacement liner form DJO direct 800-336-6569. they are not available on BetterBraces.com
  • Kim at 11/3/2014 10:08 AM
    • I was diagnosed with severe plantar fasciitis. My dr,. recommended the Aircast FP Walking Brace. However, my daughter used the donjoy maxtrax air ankle walker. Are they pretty much the same. I hate to purchase one thing when I already have something I can use.
    • Kim
      The Maxtrax will work however you doctor may want you in a full length boot, so you should discuss with your doctor if it will be ok to wear the ankle length
  • Lisa S at 10/16/2014 10:49 AM
    • I have PTTD, would this walker be good to use for this condition?
    • Lisa
      The boot will immobilize your ankle to help decrease the stretching of that tendon. You may want to purchase a arch support and put it in the boot as well
  • Cathy C at 9/14/2014 9:38 PM
    • Hi. I have a medium but my ankle doesn't even stick out beyond the metal bars. Also it is loose. I wear an 8 but had major foot surgery. My toes are barely visible also, and the boot just seems too big. I have a bit of atrophy too, but my ankle is not supported and painful when I walk because it is moving around.

      Could this be too big?
    • Based on your explanation, yes this boot may be too big for you.
  • Diane L at 9/10/2014 11:59 PM

    • Kim

  • Nicole Mefret Norman at 6/4/2014 3:41 AM
    • I have a stress fracture on both feet left and right. Can I wear matrax air walker ankle on both feet in the same time? urgent
    • Yes you can wear on both feet at the same time, altough it may be a little akward walking. You might want to use a cane for balance

    • I am currently wearing a maxtrax air ankle walker for a broken foot. I see there is different images with the 2 middle straps. One being crossed and the other straight. Should these straps be crossed or not?
    • Hello, Stacy -

      With the DonJoy Air Max Trax, the straps at the ankle joint are crossed. All the others go straight across.

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

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • Jeri Lord at 3/26/2013 7:28 AM
    • I left the instruction manual for this at the doctor's office. How tight should the straps be wrapped? Also, when you turn the knob to inflate do you hear air? Do you have to pump it up with the gray felt bubble as well? Thank you
    • Hello, Jeri -

      A PDF has been sent to your personal email of the instructions of the DonJoy Maxtrax Air Ankle Walker. The straps should be tight enough to secure the ankle walker in place without adding additional pressure to your lower extremity. You will hear the air as you inflate the air bladders, which is inflated by pumping the gray felt button in the front of the boot. The knob does not inflate the air bladders, it releases the air when you turn it counter clockwise. When you turn it clockwise, it closes the cells so that it locks the air in when you pump it up.

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

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • Does the lining come out so it can be washed?
    • Yes. To clean, hand wash with a mild detergent and air dry. Do not place in the washer or dryer, this could damage the aircells in the lining.

    Patients need education on how to use this boot

    Reviewed by:
    I like this boot after having hardware removed from a broken ankle several years ago. But education needs to be given as to how to put it on. after the incision is dressed, the foot needs to be placed in the black foot part and then placed in the boot. The patient needs to know who to pump it up and let go of the air in this boot.

    Repeat user...this is the go to boot

    Reviewed by:
    I have had to wear this boot on three different injuries over a period of 8 months. Then a year and a half later I injured foot again. Was given a different boot (no air, and had a white plastic thing going around it) ... After walking on it a few days I was having pain, numbness, and a huge red mark on the top of my foot. Took that boot back and traded it for THIS boot. It was like night and day...this boot did not have the bad pressure points on top of the foot and ankle like that one did. This boot also felt a lot lighter. I will always ask for this boot over any other.

    My doctor gave me this boot to wear after bunion surgery. It is terrific! The air cushion adds so much stability to the ankle. I also have a heel spur on that foot, and in this boot, I don't feel it. Thank you for a super product!

    Supports the ankle & keeps it stable with less pain. Need to be aware that there is a small boot that attaches to the other foot so that you are walking evenly.

    Good product - one flaw

    Ordered for a tibial tendon problem, to wear for 6-8 weeks. Jury's out on whether it has the desired effect. Main problem is imbalance due to height of the brace, not something that's its fault.
    Pros: Good instructions make putting it on relatively easy. Comfortable design, with soft inner boot. Velcro closures are easy to adjust.
    Cons: Outer frame rubbed a hole in the inner boot in less than 2 weeks.

    Initially, this was too painful to wear with the swelling and where the bladders put pressure on the fracture/sprain. Once the swelling was down a bit more, this is ideal for getting out of the house. It allows excellent support! I've found it is adaptable to allow my lace up splint to be worn under it so that when I started driving, I could have a loose shoe with the lace up on, then remove the shoe and strap on this walker and I was off to the grocery/work, etc. without a long laborious change. It IS longer than I really needed by about 2+" (I wear 8.5-9 women's and ordered a medium) so you need to be watchful where your foot is. I nearly flipped when I hit the wheel of a grocery cart.
    Pros: Easy to strap on. Very adjustable with rotating hardware for the velcro straps so you can decide what works best for support and when as you heal. Good traction.
    Cons: Large when using the recommended sizing chart.

    Asking for the best functioning product I could buy. I purchased this boot for optimal results and intend to recover well. I had hoped to do it with accolades to this ankle walker.
    Pros: Probability of receiving replacement of the DonJoy Maxtrax Air Ankle Walker (Right) *Confirmation # 100411143
    Cons: Possibly another strap could tear off and the ankle walker would have no stability.
