The Aircast AirSelect Elite is a walking boot, engineered to provide protection, comfort, and edema control.
- Stable fracture of foot/ankle/lower leg
- Severe ankle sprain
- Post-operative immobilization
- Reduction of edema (swelling)
The Elite has a durable, semi-rigid shell that helps support the limb while providing full-shell protection. Overlapping Duplex aircells line the shell providing intermittent pneumatic compression for edema reduction. The front panel is pre-inflated and combined with the overlapping aircells, provides a 'total contact' fit. SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock, while the light weight rocker sole combine to encourage a natural gait and a continuation of everyday activities.
Features & Benefits
- Integrated inflation system (NO separate hand bulb). Integrated inflation system puts the patient in control for an individualized fit.
- Non-marking, skid resistant rubber tread. For greater traction and longer wear
- Duplex technology
- SoftStrike technology. Absorbs and dissipates the energy during heel strike. Reduction of heel pain
- Low profile optimized rocker sole. The rocker sole, enables a normal walking gait with less forefoot angulations’ and reduces hyperextension of the knee.
- Toe-off section continues the rocking motion, enhancing mobility. Mid-stance section is designed to minimize hip differential
- Trimmable and heat moldable semi-rigid shell. Makes it easy to custom-fit the brace to the patient for a more comfortable fit. Sleek, open-frame design provides ventilation and patient protection and compliance. Shell contours around the malleoli, eliminating pressure for sustained comfort. AirSelect boots have improved width around the ankle area as well as uniformed sizing throughout the various sizes of the boot (XS-XL).
- Three-strap system. Evenly disperses pressure and helps reduce pooling of edema. Ease of application.
Do not over-inflate aircells. Improper aircell inflation may cause significant skin irritation, especially in people with diabetic neuropathy (a diabetic nerve condition). Check your skin frequently for “hot spots” and skin irritation. If you see any skin changes or feelings of discomfort, reduce the aircell compression. Do not use this device if you cannot feel sensations whether due to post-op anesthesia, nerve, skin or other conditions. Use caution when walking on slippery or wet surfaces to avoid injury.
The Air Select Elite has aircels, right, left and posterior. The Standard has two right and left. That is the only difference between the two braces
There is a strap replacement kit available through DJO direct 800-336-6569
YOu can't take the padding or liner out so you will have to wash by hand with mild soap and water aand let air dry.
-Is the "Elite" significantly better than the XP?
-I wear a size 14 shoe and have worn the XP before in a large. It fit well, but my toes stuck out a bit. Is the extra-large a more appropriate size?
