Description
 

The Bledsoe Achilles Boot has a unique group of 10 degree inter locking heel wedges that are incorporated into the insole of the boot. This wedge system allows the physician the luxury of putting the patient into a walking boot with up to 40 degrees of plantar flexion into the ankle. This plantar flexed position takes the tension off the Achilles tendon after surgical repair or for conservative treatment. The interlocking wedges can be removed as the patient rehabs closer to normal 90 degrees of ankle position. Like all Bledsoe Boots the uprights can be formed to match the patients anatomy.


Features include:

  • Aluminum boot shell and upright system that, unlike plastic boots, can be reformed to fit virtually any leg or ankle shape
  • Four cast inter-locking 10° urethane wedges provide fast change of foot angle
  • Contains three layers of pads that contour to the ankle shape and support the ankle for total control
  • Unique rocker design allows patients to closely simulate a near normal gait without abnormal loads on any joints
  • Also available in Lo-Top and PTB (patella tendon bearing) versions (call for more information)
  • Optional air ankle/heel pad allows for ability to adjust ankle pressure for increased comfort and provides pneumatic ankle support.


Indications
This device is indicated for immediate application following injury to or reconstruction of the achilles tendon.


Contraindications
This device is contraindicated for unstable fractures and proximal tibial or fibular fractures.
