What Makes the Aircast AirSelect Boot Superior to Similar Boots?
The Aircast AirSelect Boot uses SoftStrike technology, which is a patented grid design that puts a matrix of shock-absorbing material in direct contact with the heel. This helps absorb and dissipate shock, which reduces discomfort in the area while also reducing heel loading and preventing impact-related stress.

SoftStrike Technology Benefits for the Aircast AirSelect Short Walker Boot

Coupled with the use of a lightweight, low-profile rocker sole, the SoftStrike technology used in this walker boot encourages the use of a natural gait. This can significantly improve your ability to continue performing everyday activities without fear of discomfort or re-injury.

How Does the AirSelect Short Walker Boot Differ from the AirSelect Standard Walker Boot?
Both versions of the Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot are highly comfortable and effective, with features such as Integrated Inflation Technology, Duplex Technology, Ultralight Technology and SoftStrike Technology, which absorbs and dissipates shock. They only differ in the height of the brace, which makes them suitable for different conditions. While the Short Walker Boot is more suitable for foot and ankle injuries, the Standard Walker Boot can also be used for lower leg injuries.

How Customisable Is the Aircast Walking Boot?
The Aircast Walking Boot offers a custom and comfortable fit. The easy-to-trim and heat mouldable semi-rigid shell makes it easy to custom-fit the brace, while the sleek, open-frame design provides ventilation and maximum patient protection and compliance. Moreover, the integrated inflation system puts you in control for an individualised fit.

Can the Aircast Walking Boot Help to Reduce Swelling?
Designed with an integrated inflation system, the Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot allows you to inflate each aircell individually. This helps you tailor the support according to your needs while also maximising your comfort level and reducing oedema.

How Comfortable Is the Aircast AirSelect Walking Boot?
The Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot has been designed with a semi-rigid shell. Although these can be fairly heavy, this particularly support has been crafted with structurally-engineered vents that maximise airflow and minimise mass without compromising support. This helps ensure you remain comfortable even when you use the walker boot for long periods of time.

How Can I Even Up My Gait When Wearing the Walker?
Since the walker will often make your injured leg feel slightly longer than your other leg when walking, and aid may be needed to even your gait to avoid postural problems. We recommend the Evenup Shoe Balancer, which can be purchased alongside this walker boot at a reduced price as the Aircast AirSelect Short Walker Boot and Evenup Shoe Balancer pack.
