ANKLE
The ankle joint consists of the tibiofibular, talocrural and subtalar joints. The tibiofibular joint is connected by the anterior tibiofibular, posterior tibiofibular, inferior transverse ligament and interosseous membrane. The talocrural joint located between the talus, the medial malleolus of the distal tibia, and lateral malleolus of the distal fibula. The subtalar joint is an articulation between the talus and calcaneus. The medial ligament complex consisting of the tibionavicular, tibiocalcanean, posterior tibiotalar and anterior tibiotalar ligaments is very strong. The lateral side has several separated ligaments, including the anterior talofibular, calcaneofibular, posterior talofibular ligament. The key muscles surrounding the ankle are peroneal muscles (longus and brevis), triceps surae, and anterior / posterior tibialis.

AIR WALKER WITH ROM HINGE
Plastic
ANKLE SUPPORTS
 


  • Cross-strapping provides firm support and stabilization for injured ankle.
  • Rocker bottom provides more walking stability during rehabilitation.
  • Extra pads help increase comfort, providing stability and firm support for injured ankle.
  • Settings from 45X plantar flexion and 30X dorsi-flexion in 7.5X increments.
  • Uprights can be locked in fixed position of 0X, 7.5X, 15X, 22.5X or 30X plantar flexion and dorsi-flexion.

  • Please follow the doctor's instruction. The following is the step of setting the hinge. Slide open hinge cover. Turn hinge cover to expose pins. Remove pins, select correct settings and reinsert pins. Close cap cover. To lock upright at 90X angle, set both pins at 0X. To lock at 7.5X, 15X, 22.5X, 30X, 37.5X or 45X of plantar or dorsi-flexion, set one pin on each hinge at desired setting in location marked lock and second pin at the same degree setting on the opposite side. Repeat the procedure for the hinge on the other side of walker.
  • Place foot in liner and secure with contact closure. Make sure the heel fits snugly into the posterior portion of the liner. Fasten the foot flaps on the liner first, making sure they are snug.
  • Wrap and fasten the leg portion of the liner, again making sure that it is snug from bottom to top. Some trimming of the liner may be necessary to accomplish an optimum fit.
  • Spread the uprights using both hands and step into boot, aligning uprights with midline of the ankle. The uprights may be bent to accommodate any leg contour.
  • Secure boot straps, starting at the toes and working up the leg.
  • To inflate air liner, press and release the air valve several times until liner is providing comfortable cushion and support. To release air from the walker liner, press the black button while simultaneously compress the airbag for a few seconds

  • Post-operative use.
  • Stress/stable fractures of the lower leg.
