Common Foot & Ankle

Walker Boot

What is it?

A thermoplastic shell which encompasses the posterior (back) half of the leg and extends from the upper calf to underneath the foot. The shell has a foam liner and can have cushioned insole layers. The liner has velcro closures and there is a removable thin thermoplastic front shell which overlays the back shell slightly and is secured with velcro straps. The bottom of the walker has a hard wearing sole with a rocker bottom.

What does it do?

Once correctly applied, the walker maintains the foot and ankle in a fixed position for walking and the rocker bottom/cushioned insoles reduce pressures on the underside of the foot.

What does it cost?

£35.00 – £195.00
