Cam Walkers (aka Fracture Boots) for Foot and Ankle Injuries
What is a cam walker? These boot-like devices offer immobilization and protection for many types of foot and ankle injuries. But how do you choose the correct cam walker? For most sprains, hairline stress fractures, and soft tissue injuries, choosing the right cam walker comes down to making one simple - yet important decision - whether to go with a tall or short height version. When in doubt it's best to error on the side of caution and choose a tall height model for added protection. Tall walkers are better for immobilization and allow less overall movement inside the brace while shorter cam walkers offer less immobilization and a greater range of movement inside.
Next, it's important to think about your comfort level needs when choosing a cam walker boot. Today's cam walker fracture boot models feature moisture-wicking liners and inflatable air bladders on the sides of the ankle for an adjustable fit.
