Thuasne XLR8 Pneumatic Walker Boot
Fracturing your foot or suffering from ligament and tendon-related trauma/injury are fairly common conditions, particularly for skiiers and runners. Walker boots have been designed to protect your foot following an injury or surgery. The Thuasne XLR8 Pneumatic Walker Boot has a rigid shell to protect your foot and inflatable air cells to provide you with a precise anatomical fit even when you're suffering from oedema, making it perfect for helping you recover quickly.
Who Can Make Gains with the XLR8 Pneumatic Walker?
As the Pneumatic Walker Boot has been created for use following a range of different foot injuries, it's ideal for those who are more susceptible to these. This includes: those who play football and American football; skiiers; and rugby players. The boot can be used to help the following conditions:
- Fracture of the foot
- Fracture of the front of the foot
- Ligament and tendon-related trauma/injury
- Pre- or post-operative ankle stabilisation
- Severe sprains

The walker boot allows you to get back on your feet more rapidly as it reduces swelling and oedema with its integrated air cells. Although you likely shouldn't perform sporting activities with the above conditions the walker can help you get back on your feet doing everyday tasks, taking you one step closer to getting back on the slopes or the track.
