Robo Boots

An Aircast boot is a brand-name pneumatic walking brace used after surgery or injury to the lower leg or foot. The air cells in the brace are adjusted by the patient for a custom fit within a strong plastic shell. The support and stability offered by an Aircast boot allows patients to gradually increase weight-bearing activity on their injured leg as it heals. Aircast walking braces come in multiple sizes and designs for different applications.

OKAPED clinicians fit a variety of Robo boots which are used after grade 2 and 3 ankle sprains, stable fractures, post-operative use, trauma, or rehab of the foot and/or ankle. Your surgeon or physician will provide specific guidelines to you regarding the use of your boot. They may request a specific type, brand or fit depending upon your injury or recovery protocol. We do not rent these items as there is no sterilization process to ensure cleanliness even after the liners are changed. In most cases purchasing is still cheaper than a a typical 6 week rental.

Achilles Tendon Tears and Rupture Boot

The Achilles tendon is highly vulnerable to injury because of its limited blood supply and the combination of forces to which it is subjected. Current protocols suggest that immobilization and gradual reduction of plantar flexion are recommended in the treatment of Achilles ruptures.

Optimizing treatment of Achilles ruptures

The Achilles Wedge Kit provides an optimal solution for both functional (non-surgical) and postsurgical treatment of Achilles ruptures.

A Roboboot provides immobilization, protection and comfort, while the  Achilles Wedge Kit provides adjustable angles of plantar flexion that can be easily modified through the rehabilitation process.


Pediatric Boots:

Pediatric Cam Walkers are designed to stabilize and protect the lower leg, ankle and foot. They are easy to operate and comfortable to wear, making them ideal for an active child who requires stability following a sprain, stress fracture, or surgery.
