Aircast Walkers

Introduction to Aircast Walkers

As opposed to the use of a conventional cast, an Aircast Walker is a type of boot that is worn in order to help stabilise the ankle/foot area of the leg.

There are numerous options to consider when choosing a walking cast replacement. A well-designed walker is a cost-effective treatment method that removes the time and costs associated with making a cast.
