For over 30 years the Aircast Air-Stirrup has been the ankle brace of choice for medical professionals worldwide. With its patented Duplex Aircell System, the Air-Stirrup is clinically proven (cited in over 100 medical journals) to promote efficient oedema reduction and to help accelerate rehabilitation. The distal aircell is encased in the proximal aircell creating a dual air chamber effect which further enhances circulation. Unlike a single aircell, in which the air pressure is uniform, the dual aircell generates a pulsating effect causing the oedema and swelling to move up the leg during ambulation.
Studies have shown that after five days of wear, the oedema has significantly decreased with the Air-Stirrup II. Research has also shown that long-term function and joint stability achieved by wearing the Aircast Air-Stirrup is equal to the results achieved with surgery, without any treatment-related complications. It is also a more cost-effective method.
Often copied, but never equalled, the Air-Stirrup’s design means only one adjustable brace is required during the whole recovery process, providing the ankle with ROM, reducing swelling and removable for ease and hygiene reasons.
The Air-Stirrup II offers the same level of unrivalled support and protection, and is equipped with four new upgrades and enhancements for increased ease of use, comfort and breathability.
Updated features include a breathable soft mesh liner for improved comfort and reduction in sweating and new stylised medial and lateral anatomical semi-rigid shells that contour the shape of the malleoli and help prevent inversion or eversion or re-injury.
An adapted rear step-in design and strapping configuration provides easier application, with straps that don’t hang loose but follow the anatomical shape of the shells, and a patented, moulded-in hook and loop closure to insure durability.
