The Rebound Air Walker features a host of details designed to provide added protection, superior compression, simplified application and usage, improved comfort and, ultimately, successful patient outcomes
Following severe injuries of the foot and ankle, immobilization is essential. Most important is sagittal plane immobilization of the ankle to limit dorsiflexion and plantarflexion range-of-motion (ROM).
Fiberglass casting has historically been considered the “gold standard” of care. However, In a recent, IRB-approved, prospective, randomized, controlled study, the Össur Medical Office demonstrated that there was no significant difference in sagittal plane ankle immobilization between the Rebound Air Walker (9.59° ± 5.66) and a fiberglass cast (9.45° ± 4.69).
Gait symmetry was significantly better with the Rebound Air Walker (3.17% ± 1.15) than for a fiberglass cast (6.53% ± 3.30).
