Bledsoe Achilles Walking Boot Information
The Bledsoe Achilles Boot saves time by eliminating casting series required to stretch the Achilles tendon during rehab. Four cast urethane inter-locking wedges (10 degrees each) provides a fast change of foot angles.
The ease of application (less than 5 minutes!) makes this the hallmark walking boot for Achilles injury and post-op Achilles repair. Unique rocker design allows the patient to closely simulate a normal gait.
The Achilles Boot contains 3 layers of pads that contour to the ankle shape and support the ankle for total control. A low profile aluminum shell offers greater stability and strength.
