Given the variation in types of ankle injury there are many different types of Aircast ankle brace that are suitable for the treatment of specific injuries. I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of the Aircast A60 having suffered quite a severe lateral ankle sprain resulting in joint damage around 18 months ago, and still use the A60 to allow me to continue running and playing football. The table below shows the other types of brace that you might find useful for treatment of specific injury types as well as the prevention of them in the first place.
Aircast Ankle Brace
How It Works
|Aircast A60||- Prevention of ankle injuries during all sports|
- Recovery from:
- Sprained Ankle
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Swollen Ankle
- Broken Ankle
|Patent pending design incorporates a pair of sleek stabilisers located on either side of the ankle. These stabilisers are moulded at a 60 degree angle to help guard against a sprained ankle and prevent ankle rollover.|
Manufactured from Breath-O-Prene® material. The A60 ensures that the wearer stays comfortably cool and dry, while the light-weight design easily fits in athletic footwear without creating additional bulk.
The Aircast A60 is applied and adjusted with a single Velcro strap that securely holds it in place, replacing time-consuming lacing.
The Aircast A60 ankle support brace features a specially designed split in the material under the foot; this allows you to move the mesh to one side so you can remove the support before washing.

|Aircast AirSport||- Prevention of a sprained ankle|
- Improves ankle stability
- Particularly recommended for racquet sports such as Tennis, Badminton and Squash
- Recovery from: sprained ankle, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, swollen ankle and following a broken ankle
|The Aircast AirSport Ankle support brace incorporates clinically proven Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace features, such as a semi-rigid shell and AirCells, to provide comfort and support on both sides of the ankle. This can also be very effective in the treatment of a sprained ankle, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, ankle instability or following a broken ankle.|
Additional compression and stabilisation is provided by the ATF (Anterior TaloFibular ligament) Velcro cross strap and integral forefoot and shin wraps. This compression is very effective in the treatment of a swollen ankle. Once strapped in place this brace limits ankle movement in order to prevent the ankle rolling over.

|Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot||For treatment following a shin injury or ankle injury, such as:|
- Ankle fracture
- Fibula fracture
- Ankle dislocation
- Potts fracture
- Tibial fracture
- Broken leg
|The hard plastic shell provides immobilisation and as much protection as a plaster cast, but the lighter weight makes the Aircast FP Walker much more comfortable and convenient. The foam lining provides compression for the swollen shin and ankle, which helps to reduce swelling.|
Unlike conventional plaster casting, it can be taken off to allow the patient to bathe and undertake rehab exercises. This improves hygiene, helps prevent ankle stiffness and muscle wastage - reducing the injury healing time.
Aircast walking braces can be used right through the rehabilitation period, from the initial injury until you are ready to start walking normally. Once your doctor indicates that it is OK to resume partial weight bearing on the injured foot or ankle, then the rocker sole on the Aircast FP Walker allows safe walking while still providing protection and compression for the injury. By putting this gentle pressure on the injury the healing process is further accelerated.

|Aircast Plantar Fasciitis AirHeel||For the treatment of:|
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Heel Pain
|Using two interconnected AirCells located under the foot arch and in back of the heel, the AirHeel applies pulsating compression with every step to help reduce swelling and discomfort, and enhance circulation. This provides pain relief for heel pain and Plantar Fasciitis. The AirHeel is made of lightweight neoprene fabric and is simple to apply - just slip it on like a sock and adjust the fit with one strap. ||£38.00 / $37.79
|Aircast FlatFoot PTTD Brace||For the treatment of: |
- Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD)
- acquired flat foot (fallen arches).
|The Aircast Flat Foot PTTD Brace is ideal for the treatment of acquired flat foot, fallen arches and Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD). The Aircast Flat Foot PTTD Brace uses AirCells to lift the arch of the foot, which relieves pressure on the arch and the Posterior Tibial Tendon.|
Foot support and ankle stabilisation are provided by the Aircast Flat Foot PTTD Brace integrated AirCell which is located under the arch of the foot. The AirCell is adjustable using the hand bulb included with the brace. When inflated, the AirCell can accommodate variances in arch shapes and heights, and comfortably lifts the foot arch to achieve a more natural foot position.
For ease-of-use, AirCell inflation can be adjusted while wearing foot wear. The Aircast Flat Foot PTTD Brace is anatomically designed to the shape of the ankle for secure support and stabilisation. This helps to realign the ankle and support the patient.
The Aircast Flat Foot PTTD Brace is designed for easy application and adjustment. The support uses an innovative rear entry design which allows the patient to slip their foot into the back of the brace.
|£47.00 / $48.95
|Aircast Ankle Cryo Cuff with Cooler||Ice therapy and compression are the best treatment for:|
- ankle swelling and pain that can accompany a sprained ankle
- Dislocated ankle
- Ankle Arthritis
- Talar dome lesions
- Osteochondral lesions
- Avulsion fractures
- following ankle arthroscopy and ankle surgery.
|The Aircast Ankle Cryo/Cuff works with the Aircast Cooler (available separately) to relieve ankle pain and swelling. It's incredibly simple to use at home. Just fill the Aircast Cooler with ice and water. The Cooler holds 3.5 litres of water and ice - enough for 6-8 hours of ice therapy - a much longer therapeutic period than an ice pack. The Cooler is attached to the Aircast Ankle Cryo/Cuff which snugly fits the ankle joint. Simply elevate the Cooler above ankle height to fill the Wrap with ice cold water to provide ice therapy and compression.|
