I read the product description and am confused by this statement:
'Uprights will lock in fixed positions of 0, 7.5, 15, 22.5 and 30 plantar- and dorsi-flexion.'
Does this mean that this model only locks in these positions or does the piece allow it to move while walking for a fuller range of movement with the protection of an aircast?
You can lock it out in those positions or you can allow for controlled range of motion at those positions. It’s very similar to an IROM hinge. For example, you could set it to allow 15 deg of dorsi-flex and 30 deg of plantar flex.
This is not considered a Dynamic support. The boot can be locked in certain degrees of plantar and dorsi flexion but will not put an active stretch on the ankle at the same time. The ankle may be passively stretched while in the boot however
The lightest walking boot we carry is the Aircast Air Select Walking boot. The Standard or the Short can be used for your daughter depending on what the physician orders. https://www.donjoystore.com/aircast-airselect-standard
