Proven Cast-Stable Orthosis

The VACOped, being the modern gold standard of care for Achilles tendon repair, is a cast-stable functional orthosis for the immobilisation and later dynamisation of the foot and ankle. Treatment with VACOped has been proven to provide superior results in treating ATR conservatively without the need for surgery, allowing for a quick recovery process and for patients to weight bear earlier.

Main Indications of the VACOped Boot

Patients with the following conditions may use the VACOped Walking Boot for treatment, protection, and support:

  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Ankle fractures
  • Ankle joint replacement
  • Arthrodeses of the upper and lower ankle joint
  • Calcaneus fractures
  • Complex ligament injuries
  • Severe sprained ankle

How Does this Walking Boot for Fractures and Achilles Tendon Rupture Work?

The VACOped features a patented range-of-motion (ROM) adjustable between -15° and +30° which allows for a functional treatment in real equinus position. This leads to faster recovery and as good functional outcomes as surgery would, however without the associated risks and costs.

What is the Equinus Position?

The equinus position refers to a downward angle of the foot. When setting and locking the VACOped at 30° the boot is able to treat the injured ankle in this position.

Which Size Is Right For Me?

Available in small, medium and large, and covering UK sizes between 2.5 and 14, the VACOped is will fit the majority of injured patients. Please consult the table below to find the correct size for you before making your purchase.

Size UK Shoe Size
Small UK Size 2.5 - 6.5
