Medical CAM Boot For Broken Foot
OrthoTape ships a wide range of medical boots for a broken or sprained ankle/foot direct to patients.
The medical boot is relatively new to the orthopedic bracing world. Other terms often used are cam walker, fracture boot, cam boot or orthopedic boot. CAM stands for controlled ankle movement. It is used as a cast alternative and a transition from the walking cast after you suffer from a foot or ankle injury. There are three types of cam walkers and each is different based upon your particular injury. The adjustable inflated boot has an air bladder that inflates and can provide needed compression to help reduce swelling. The non inflated boot is often used if you do not have swelling and is more economical. The range of motion or ROM walker is used if you need to set your ankle at a particular angle or allow a certain range of motion.
Types of Orthopedic Medical Boots
There are three types of orthopedic medical boots and two heights:
Non- Inflated Cam Boot - This type of med boot is often used when you do not have much swelling.
Inflated Cam Boot - This boot has a pneumatic bladder that helps provide needed compression for swelling.
ROM Boot - This type of boot provides a locking mechanism that may be needed to lock the ankle at a certain degree of bend or permit a set range of motion.
Short Cam boots - Short fracture boots are recommended for foot fractures, post-op foot surgeries, and other sprains of the foot or ankle.
Tall Cam boots - Tall fracture boots are often used for fractures of the lower leg, ankle sprains, stable fractures of the ankle and foot, sprains of the lower leg, and post-op surgeries.

How can a Medical Boot help your broken or sprained foot?
Anyone who suffers an injury of the leg such as ankle sprain, ankle break, broken bone of the foot or toe can benefit from this type of boot.
This type of orthopedic medical boot is often needed to help stabilize or provide support for the injured limb. Thereby protecting it and giving it more support.
The boot also protects the injury from accidental damage such as a bump or kick.
The inside of a medical boot often features pneumatic compression for good circulation and cushioned surface for shock absorption. Pneumatic air boots provide compression to help circulation and a wide foot back helps provide better stability and comfort for the injury.
The bottom of the medical boot is designed with a rocker bottom to move with your natural gate.
These types of boots are often the next step after casting to help the patient become mobile again.
