Aircast AirLift PTTD Ankle Brace
Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD), otherwise known as adult-acquired flat foot, can cause pain, swelling and even arthritis in the foot. This tends to reduce your mobility, making it difficult to perform daily activities as you usually would, so it's vital that you provide proper stabilisation and support to the area. The Aircast AirLift PTTD Ankle Brace is designed to be used as part of a conservative treatment to prevent the condition from worsening, or else following a surgery and during rehabilitation.
Who Can Make Gains Using the Aircast AirLift PTTD Brace?
In athletes, untreated PTTD can limit your ability to walk, run, or perform other normal activities. When early symptoms of PTTD are present, using the AirLift PTTD Ankle Brace can help to reduce the need for surgery at a later date. Alternatively, the AirLift can be used as a post-operative tool, helping to expedite your rehabilitation and get you back to your active lifestyle. The PTTD Ankle Brace is designed to protect and stabilise your foot for a range of conditions. This includes the following:
- Adult-acquired flat foot
- Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (stage one and early stage two)
- Post-operative use

AirLift Integrated Aircell
Designed with an AirLift aircell that's located under the foot arch, the AirLift PTTD Ankle Brace is adjustable using the included hand bulb. When inflated, the aircell can accommodate variances in arch shapes or height and comfortably lifts the foot arch to achieve a more natural foot position. The aircell can even be inflated while you wear shoes for easy adjustment.
Easy Application and Adjustment
The Aircast AirLift Ankle Brace is designed for easy application and adjustment. The brace uses an innovative rear entry design which allows you to slip your foot into the back of the brace.
Two straps secure the brace and can be used to adjust the fit of the support. These patient-friendly elements make the AirLift easier to apply than custom braces and eliminate time-consuming lacing. This helps improve the likelihood that you will wear the brace.
