Frequently Asked Questions
Can you walk normally in Aircast Air Stirrup Brace?
Aircast walking boots are comfortable – These walking braces are low profile, so you can walk normally. The same air cells that aid in healing also help cushion and support the foot and ankle area for the best, most natural fit.
How long should I wear an Air Cast Ankle Stirrup for a sprained ankle?
For a Grade 2 sprain, a removable plastic device, such as a walking boot or aircast brace, can provide support. Grade 3 sprains may require a short leg cast or cast brace for 10 to 14 days. In most cases, swelling and pain will last 2 to 3 days.
