A short or low air cast boot is a popular foot and ankle brace for people with fractured ankle, broken foot or severe sprained ankle. We call it short because it is shorter than the long air cast walking boot. But to be more accurate, it is rather the standard and most popular boot cast for injured ankle or foot.
What's an air cast walking boot?
An air cast walking boot is the version of boot cast that is equipped with an inflatable pneumatic or air pump. By inflating your low air cast boot, you create a kind of foot or ankle protection cushion. These inflated air pockets would prevent sprained or broken ankle from feeling any shock or rough contact with floor or other solid surface. In addition, the discretionary air pumping allows patient to choose the right adjustment level for her or him.
