More About This Product
Achilles Tendon Walker instantly immobilizes the foot and ankle. The internal hind foot-wedge initially positions the foot at 30° plantar flexion (2" high, this may vary with foot length). As recovery progresses, decrease plantar flexion in 1/8" increments by simply peeling a layer from the base of the wedge. Eliminates the need to perform multiple casting applications usually required to stretch the Achilles tendon during rehabilitation. Progressive adjustment in seconds! Ideal for post-surgical or partial tear treatment.Suggested code: L4386.

Save time with fewer castings
After an injury, the Achilles tendon needs rest to heal. Often a series of castings is recommended to help in this healing by initially restricting movement and later by progressively stretching the Achilles tendon.
AliMed’s Achilles Tendon Walker boot with adjustable hindfoot wedge allows ambulation while helping the tendon to heal by taking some of the strain off. The 5-cm hindfoot wedge initially positions the foot at 30° of plantarflexion. Layers quickly and simply peel away in 1/8" increments as recovery progresses, saving time of multiple castings.
