Bledsoe Achilles Boot
The Bledsoe Achilles Boot
saves time by eliminating casting series required to stretch the achilles tendon during rehab.
- Aluminum boot shell and upright system that, unlike plastic boots, can be reformed to fit virtually any leg or ankle shape
- Four cast inter-locking 10° urethane wedges provide fast change of foot angle
- Contains three layers of pads that contour to the ankle shape and support the ankle for total control
- Unique rocker design allows patients to closely simulate a near normal gait without abnormal loads on any joints
- Also available in Lo-Top and PTB (patella tendon bearing) versions (call for more information)
- Optional air ankle/heel pad allows for ability to adjust ankle pressure for increased comfort and provides pneumatic ankle support.
This device is indicated for immediate application following injury to or reconstruction of the achilles tendon.
This device is contraindicated for unstable fractures and proximal tibial or fibular fractures.
