An injured foot can seriously impact your get-up-and-go. Depending upon the severity of the injury, crutches or even a wheelchair may be recommended by your doctor. In some instances, your physician may opt for a cast or walking boot as part of your recovery.

There are a plethora of options available on the market today. To help you navigate this confusing arena, Health Products for You is here to help you find the best walking boot for broken ankles and feet. 

When to use a Walking Boot?

Our range of orthopedic boots for broken ankles are used when a person has - 

  • Foot or shin fractures 
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Ankle sprains 
  • Achilles' injuries 
  • Calf tears 
  • Heel decubitus 

Five Best Walking Boots for Broken Ankles

As with many other medical products or aids, the choices available to consumers are endless, and choosing what is right for you can be difficult. Health Products for You offers solutions to fit everyone’s rehab needs. Five great options include: 

1. Podus Boot

This boot can be used with or without the available ambulation attachment and is designed for use for injuries such as plantar flexion contraction, decubitus heel/toe ulcers, and hip rotation. This orthopedic boot helps elevate and float the heel. The fleece lining has added padding for extra cushioning and pressure relief. The plush fleece lining is washable, and the boot may be worn both in bed and while walking.

2. Comfy Boot

Often, this boot is worn by patients who are bedridden to prevent pressure sores, but with the ambulating base, it may be worn out of bed. Walking comfort is easy with the non-slip rubber sole, and the soft fleece-lined cover wicks away moisture. The floating heel minimizes pressure sores and promotes blood flow for healing.

3. Thuasne XLR8 Pneumatic Walker Boot

This boot is designed for treating severe sprains, malleolar fractures, and fractures in the lower 1/3 part of the leg. The full-shell structure optimizes immobilization and has a pneumatic bladder with a built-in air pump to easily adjust pressure once the boot is on. Available in standard and mid-calf options, the liner is removable and washable. The curved, anti-skid sole makes walking comfortable.

4. Aircast AirSelect Short Walking Boot

It is the best walking boot for metatarsal fractures. It has a durable, semi-rigid shell that provides superior comfort, faster healing, and support for stress/stable fractures of the foot, soft tissue injuries, and severe ankle sprains. The pre-inflated front panel and two adjustable distal air cells absorb and dissipate shock. It is available in five different sizes to fit any patient.

5. Ovation Medical Gen 2 Standard Pneumatic Walker

The low profile of this pneumatic walker practically eliminates leg length discrepancy and reduces shock absorption to the injured extremity by 50%, providing unparalleled comfort and stability. Designed with an ergonomic pump and single pushbutton release, it allows for ease of use and increased patient compliance.

Injuries to our lower legs and feet are not only inconvenient, but they also impact our quality of life. Maximize your mobility with the best walking boot for broken ankle that aids your recovery and fits your mobility needs. Be sure to consult your physician or physical therapist to see if there are any specifications or requirements that your rehabilitation may need. Do your homework and let HPFY keep you mobile!
