What to buy with Aircast Walking Boot
How to apply Airselect Orthopedic Walking Boots?
- Prepare Brace – Unfasten straps, remove the front panel, and open liner
- Apply Brace –
- While seated, place foot in brace. Position heel in back of brace. Wrap liner around foot and then ankle.
- Replace front panel: Position front panel so the Aircast logo is over the toes and the foot panel is situated inside the brace. The upper part of the panel should be secured outside the brace.
- Secure straps from bottom to top. Tighten until snug and comfortable.
- Adjust Aircell Compression - The Short Walking brace Aircells are initially deflated.
- Begin inflation on injured side first. Turn the SELECTOR found on the right-side of the brace to the appropriate number. Number 1 inflates the aircell on the right-side, Number 2 inflates the aircell on the left-side and Number 3 inflates the back aircell.
- To inflate aircell, press and release large inflation pump found on the top right-side of brace. Pump until aircell feels snug.
- To inflate other aircells, rotate SELECTOR to the appropriate number and then press and release large inflation pump. Pump until aircell feels snug
- In the event of over-inflation, deflate aircells
- Deflate Aircells:
- To deflate aircells, turn the SELECTOR found on the right-side of the brace to the proper aircell number
- Press and hold finger on the small release button found on the top right-side of brace
- Deflate until pressure is comfortable.
Note: Deflate aircells before removing brace for proper fit when reapplying. Higher pressure provides more support when walking, lower pressure is more comfortable when sitting or reclining. Pressure can also be adjusted by tightening or loosening straps.
