More About This Product
Achilles Tendon Walker instantly immobilizes the foot and ankle. The internal hind foot-wedge initially positions the foot at 30° plantarflexion (2" high, this may vary with foot length). As recovery progresses, decrease plantarflexion in 1/8" increments by simply peeling a layer from the base of the wedge. Eliminates the need to perform multiple casting applications usually required to stretch the Achilles tendon during rehabilitation. Progressive adjustment in seconds! Ideal for post-surgical or partial tear treatment.
Suggested code: L4386.
Replacement Insoles fit into your existing cast walker. Tri-level insole has adjustable 5 cm mid-wedge. Peel-off layers allow for progressive control of ankle flexion. Top sole has heel-centering profile, multi-layered wedge insole, and NickelPlast base.
Both walker and insoles fit left or right.
Suggested code: L3030.

Save time with fewer castings After an injury, the Achilles tendon
needs rest to heal. Often a series of
castings is recommended to help in this
healing by initially restricting movement
and later by progressively stretching the
AliMed’s Achilles Tendon Walker boot
with adjustable hindfoot wedge allows
ambulation while helping the tendon to heal
by taking some of the strain off. The 5-cm
hindfoot wedge initially positions the foot
at 30° of plantarflexion. Layers quickly and
simply peel away in 1/8" increments as recovery
progresses, saving time of multiple castings.
