PNEUMATIC WALKER like "EasyCast" have been proposed as alternatives to casting for lower limb immobilisation following injury or surgery.
Apart from providing complete immobilisation they also provides a natural walking pattern which is supposed to decrease the rehabilitation time. In recent years foot and ankle fracture, sprains and strains, which require lower limb immobilisation, have become so common a concern that patients have started seeking a more user friendly option instead of compromising on mobility and freedom of movement. Many elite sports persons, business men and celebrities have been using Pneumatic Walkers to speed up their recovery and to prevent them from being bed-ridden for many weeks.
Features and benefits of EasyCast pneumatic walker:
- Light weight and durable shell: Provides maximum protection and support
- Hook and loop closures: For easy application and removal
