AirCast AirHeel w/ Stabilizers
This unique clinically-proven solution provides comfort and massaging compression for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis and heel pain. Patients with higher Plantar Fasciitis pain experience faster relief with the Aircast AirHeel than with a shoe insert1. Medial/Lateral stabilizers offer enhanced proprioception and stability. The AirHeel with Stabilizers is made of lightweight breathable fabric and is simple to apply; slip on like a sock and adjust the fit with one strap. The AirHeel with Stabilizers is available in small, medium and large.
Here’s how it works…The AirHeel™ brace is equipped with two interconnected aircells located under the foot arch and in back of the achilles tendon. When you take a step, the first air chamber (under the arch) begins to collapse thus reducing the stress to the plantar fascia under the arch. Air is forced into the chamber surrounding the achilles tendon which then inflates. The inflated achilles chamber applies compression to the achilles tendon to shorten the lever arm thus reducing strain on the tendon.
