- Designed for the treatment of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD), or for early signs and symptoms of the adult acquired flat foot.Anatomically designed shells for secure ankle stability.
Since we’re always moving throughout our busy lives and always on our feet, it’s important to keep an eye on the health and well-being of our feet and legs as we get older. Some adults develop a flat foot, or posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD). The Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace is designed for PTTD.
Aircast Airlift PTTD Ankle & Foot Brace
The brace works to realign and support the ankle. Depending on the severity of your condition, the brace can be used to prevent damage to the area, and used after surgery or during rehab. An aircell is located under the arch of the foot, and when adjusted, can create more of a natural foot position, further adding to your comfort. Additionally, the aircells can be adjusted while wearing shoes so that you can closely monitor the area and adjust the brace during use for comfort and stability. Anatomically designed semi-rigid shells are also incorporated into the design of the brace to secure ankle stability so you can walk normally.
Some foot braces require too many straps or a lace-up feature that’s too difficult to put on in a hurry. The Airlift is easy to put on from the rear, so you can slip your foot into simply without hindrance while two straps stabilize the position of your foot. The combination of ease of use, fully adjustable components and complete support and comfort make the Aircast Airlift PTTD Brace a great solution for flat feet.
- Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction in stage I and early stage II;
- Adult acquired flat foot; Post-operative use;
Depending on the severity of the condition, it can be prescribed for use as part of a conservative treatment to stabilize the condition and help prevent its degeneration, or post-surgically and during rehabilitation.
Foot support and ankle stabilization are provided by the AirLift integrated aircell and semi-rigid shells. The aircell, located under the foot arch, 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 semi-rigid shells are anatomically designed to the shape of the ankle for secure support and stabilization. These shells help realign the ankle and support the patient. The AirLift is designed for easy application and adjustment.
The brace uses an innovative rear entry design which allows the patient to slip their foot into the back of the brace. Two straps secure the brace and can be used to adjust fit. These patient-friendly design elements make the AirLift easier to apply than custom braces, eliminate time consuming lacing, and help improve patient compliance.
