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.
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.
