Aircast Leg Brace
Lower leg stress fractures can be difficult to recover from, mainly because of the amount of weight that is placed on the legs day in, day out. The Aircast Leg Brace functionally manages this type of injury by stabilising and supporting the lower leg.
The use of three separate straps and dual air-inflated cushions on the tibial and medial sides of the ankle help prevent rolling whilst encouraging the heel, ankle and calf to move as one unit whilst you recover. To further enhance comfort and usability, the Aircast Leg Brace comes with a sock as standard to protect your leg from abrasions, irritation and scratches to the skin.
What's So Special About the Aircast Leg Brace?
If you've damaged your lower leg, you need a brace that provides support at the heel, ankle and calf. The Aircast Leg Brace does exactly this without feeling heavy and constrictive.
Three separate straps allow you to adjust tightness, fit and feel, and the tibial and medial pads support and stabilise the ankle from heel to calf. If that wasn't enough, each brace is supplied with a sock to prevent chaffing, rubbing and irritation.

Lightweight and Inobtrusive Protection
Designed to allow the heel to seamlessly fit inside any style of shoe whilst being worn, the Aircast Leg Brace feels slender and lightweight. Unlike bulkier braces, the use of lightweight air cells helps stabilise the leg from heel to calf without feeling heavy and weighty.
Uniform Movement of the Leg
This unique design promotes uniform movement of the leg to minimise the risk of rolling and instability. When the leg, ankle and heel move as one, the danger of the lower portion of the limb giving way underneath you is drastically reduced.
Essential for Stress Fracture Rehabilitation
The main application for the Aircast Leg Brace is treating stress fractures and lower limb injuries. The inclusion of twin inflated air-cell pads encourages tired and worn out ligaments and tendons that may also be damaged to move towards the centre of the ankle, promoting alignment and postural healing.
Dual Air Cell Stabilisation
One benefit of using independently positioned cells is that both the tibial and medial sides of the leg are supported at all times. Unlike other styles that use a single, seamless support system, the Aircast Leg Brace uses twin panels that draw tired, fatigued and damaged ligaments and tendons toward the centre of the leg to maximise stability when weight is placed on the affected limb.
Supplied With a Sock for Enhanced Comfort
If you're concerned about how the Aircast Leg Brace will feel against your skin, don't be. Each Aircast Leg Brace is supplied with a soft, comfortable and plush sock lining that is soft and kind on sensitive skin.
This also helps prevent rubbing, irritation and itching if you suffer with dermatitis or eczema.
Improve Circulation and Reduce Swelling
The key to rapid recovery is increasing the amount of blood that can enter and exit the affected area. The patented "Duplex" air-cell system lining inside every Aircast Leg Brace does just this by creating a snug fit and feel that encourages oxygenated blood into the limb for improved healing.
Optional Additional Anterior Panel for Extra Tibial Protection
The Beauty of the Aircast Leg Brace is that you have the option of adding an additional anterior support panel on the tibial side of the brace. This helps to evenly distribute support and allows you to tailor the fit and feel of your brace to match your unique recovery requirements.
Innovative Duplex Aircell System
The Aircast Leg Brace features anatomically designed shells that are lined with the patented Duplex aircell system. These are pre-inflated so you don't have to wait before you apply the support. The aircell system helps to enhance circulation and reduce swelling in the area, while also ensuring you're provided with a comfortable and tailored fit.
