So.... here is the new boot ... an air cast for my fractured foot .. which by the way already feels better and less painful than it has for months.
It is a bit of a rigmarole to put on ... but not that big a deal when it is at least doing some good! Sure feels a lot better than getting pummeled at physio and coming home in agony!
The inside portion is like a little pillowed vest with velcro fasteners .. that encases the foot and leg to the knee. You first seat the heel as far back as it will go and close the fasteners.
Close the over fastener straps as well ....
Then ... turn the little white "inflate" button clockwise and pump up the inner air core with the blue cushion. What a great idea somebody had! At night it comes off and a tensor bandage and sock do the trick while sleeping so that my toes don't get caught on sheets and pull things apart again. That sure wakes me up with a start when it tweaks!
