Innovative SoftStrike Technology
The Aircast AirSelect Boot uses SoftStrike technology, which is a patented grid design that puts a matrix of shock-absorbing material in direct contact with the heel. This helps absorb and dissipate shock, which reduces discomfort in the area while also reducing heel loading and preventing impact-related stress.
Coupled with the use of a lightweight, low-profile rocker sole, the SoftStrike technology used in this walker boot encourages the use of a natural gait. This can significantly improve your ability to continue performing everyday activities without fear of discomfort or re-injury.
Ultra Light Design
The Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot has been designed with a semi-rigid shell. Although these can be fairly heavy, this particularly support has been crafted with structurally-engineered vents that maximise airflow and minimise mass without compromising support. This helps ensure you remain comfortable even when you use the walker boot for long periods of time.
