Is the FP Walking Brace right for me?
Ideal for those who are recovering from an injury and need mobility support post-surgery or foot/ankle sprain. Try our Brace Advisor for personalized product recommendations to meet your needs!
The Foam Walker provides semi-pneumatic support with Aircast full-shell protection and is available in 4 sizes (small, medium, large and X-large). Foam-filled aircells cushion the ankle for customized comfort and support. This support is effective in fracture healing and managing edema. Includes a hand bulb.

Do not over-inflate aircells. Improper aircell inflation may cause significant skin irritation in patients with diabetic neuropathy. Reduce aircell compression with any visual skin changes or reported discomfort. Do not use this device on patients incapable of communicating physical discomfort. Like all lower extremity immobilizers, such as casts or braces, patients without sensation (i.e. post-op anesthesia, neuropathies, etc.) should be monitored frequently for “hot spots”, skin irritation or wound management. Use caution when walking on slippery or wet surfaces to avoid injury. At high altitudes the aircells will expand beyond their optimal level. Adjust aircell pressure by tightening or loosening straps.

The intention of a Aircast FP Walking Brace is to completely immobilize the lower leg/ankle/foot area. You'll want to consult your physician in regards to when you can remove the brace.
