Can I use this brace for sports?
Question by: Rich on Mar 26, 2010, 10:41 AM
Yes, the Airlft PTTD can be used for a variety of sports and activities. We suggest walking first to get used to it a bit before doing any heavy activity. This will help your foot get used to the extra support.

Should I wear my regular orthodic in my shoe while wearing this brace? Thanks so much.
Question by: Faith on Jun 8, 2010, 1:52 PM
The Aircast PTTD will support the arch and with an orthotic may be too much support. Best to see how it feels and ask your doctor.

My doctors office told me I could wear the aircast brace in a shoe, but it is much more comfortable wearing it by itself. Is this okay or should i be wearing a shoe over it?
Question by: Kelly on May 27, 2011, 7:02 PM
Hi Kelly,
When you are walking around the house a shoe is not necessary but when you leave the house you will need the added support of a shoe. I recommend using sneakers or Tennis shoes and redoing the laces while you are wearing the anjkle brace. it should be much more comfortable.

Should top strap go right around the back again after going round the front? I have a small and medium size..the small one's top strap goes around once and the outside support seems to slip forward a bit when walking. The foot bit is tight...but this one sits inside my trainers much better than the medium size which is quite bulky and I can feel the bottom of the supports around the back of my ankles. With the medium one the top strap goes aroundto the back again at the end and holds the outside support in place.I am UK size 7.

The uprights should sit on the inside and outside of your ankle and yes the strap should wrap around the lower leg for you. Should you have any other questions please let us know.

I actually have very high arches, but am having bilateral PTTD. Do you think this product would help even though I don't have "flat feet".
Question by: Lee on Jun 7, 2011, 11:58 AM
Yes this brace with the adjustable aircell will help with your PTTD issues.

how much do I have to inflate the pttd brace?
Thanh you
Question by: Oberman on Mar 24, 2012, 11:10 AM
Inflation amount is based off of comfort and pain relief level. It will be different for everyone.

How does this fit in a shoe, or under a sock.

Question by: Glen Verber on Aug 17, 2012, 12:23 PM
Hi Glen

First, I would suggest you put on a sock then put the brace on over your sock. After the brace is on, you will have to loosen your shoelaces and place your foot in the shoe. Lace up your shoes and you are good to go.

If you feel like you need a more low profile ankle brace, we carry a variety of braces. You can contact us at 1-888-405-3251 to consult with a product specialist to see what best fits your needs.

Can the brace be worn during a rigorous workout?
Question by: Katie on Dec 14, 2012, 6:59 AM
Hello, Katie -

This brace is not recommended to be worn during rigorous workouts. It is usually worn post-operatively or during the rehabilitation phase of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction.

Thanks and have a great day!

my 10 year old son had the growth plate fracture on his right foot and Achilles tendinitis. It has healed, and we are looking for a brace for foot and ankle support. He is an active sports player, and we need one that will keep him from complaining about pain in his heel. Right now he is wearing shoes that range from a 7 to an 8, so we was looking for a recommendation for a brace that would give him the support he needs
Question by: Terry on Nov 29, 2013, 7:34 PM
Thank you for contacting product support. The Aircast Airlift PTTF Brace is for those that suffer from instability of the ankle and have posterior tendon tibialis tendonitis, so this is not the currect brace for your son. We do have the Aircast Airsport https://www.donjoystore.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace that will give him good ankle support, however no cushion on the heel. We have the Aircast Airheel https://www.donjoystore.com/aircast-airheel this brace will relieve pain in the heel but doesn't give ankle support. We do not have a brace that does both. I would suggest the Airsport and a DonJoy Silicone Heel Cup for his heel.
