Jim Wallace Pharmacy in Sydney , stocks and recommends Aircast Walking Braces. The model we always have in store , in all sizes is the Aircast Airselect walking brace or moon boot . These are available in the Short version and the Standard ( which goes further up your leg) . The Aircast walking brace is a pneumatic brace as the name suggests . The boot has air bags either side of the ankle which provide varying support depending on how much air is pumped into them.
We also now stock the Aircast Elite Standard cam-boot in small, medium and large. This “tall boot” is the premium in the range with more thorough encasing of the foot and THREE air-bags ! (Left, Right and Behind the ankle)
Aircast walking braces enhance the healing process by supporting the injury , reducing swelling and enhancing circulation. Cam walkers or cast boots as they are also referred to , are used for a range of foot injuries , including fractures ( broken foot , toe or ankle ) , sprains , post surgery and conditions such as plantar fasciitis .
Although we fit the boots in-store , we insist on a recommendation based on an assessment by your doctor, podiatrist or physio first. This doesn’t need to be in writing, but we are not in a position to diagnose an injury and you need to have been professionally examined to confirm the boot is an appropriate choice.
Certain medical conditions where peripheral vascular disease or peripheral neuropathy are present ,such as diabetes need more specialized fitting through a podiatrist or diabetic foot clinic.
In addition to the Aircast walking braces , we also stock the Procare Xceltrax range , which is a less supportive , but more economical alternative.
If you are looking for a ” kids ” boot for one of your children , we also keep paediatric options for little feet.
Jim Wallace Pharmacy also stocks boot accessories including the ” even-up ” which increases the height of your good foot , so both legs will be the same length. We also have a range of replacement boot liners , if you want to freshen up your old one.
