How Do I Use the Airstep Walker Leg Brace?
Thanks to its intuitive design, the Airstep Walker is simple to fit. Promedics have created a handy step-by-step guide on how to configure, fit and adjust the Airstep for maximum safety and comfort. Please see the below video for more information.
How to Inflate the Walker
The Airstep Walker features a manual inflation system that is integrated onto the walker itself. Two blue finger pumps located on either side of the walker can be used to gradually increase compression around the leg to achieve a perfect fit. Use both pumps at the same time for even inflation, or just use one if you wish to increase compression on a particular side of the leg.
Air is pumped into two internal bladders for gradual compression
How to Deflate the Walker
To deflate the walker for adjustment or removal, undo the small caps on either pump to release air gradually. Once you have the right fit, close the cap once again to prevent air from escaping during use.

Low-Profile Sole Unit
The Airstep Walker has a low profile sole to reduce the height discrepancy when worn. Made with hard-wearing materials, the sole is contoured to the foot for an ergonomic fit that improves gait function. This reduces the impact on mobility and promotes a natural walking movement.
Textured undersole provides optimal grip
Anterior Shell Compression
Specially contoured for an improved fit, the anterior shell provides optimal compression. Using the three strap closures, the frontal compression can be adjusted to suit the patients needs. Tighten the easy-fit straps for extra compression and pain relief, or loosen the straps to alleviate pressure and improve comfort.
Ensuring maximum comfort, the Airstep Walker is made using comfy, breathable materials. This makes the brace more comfortable to use and reduces moisture build-up for less irritability and odour. Combined with the lightweight design, this makes the Airstep one of the comfiest walker boots on the market.
Removeable Toe Guard
The Airstep Walker comes with an optional toe guard that protects the patients foot as they walk. The toe guard is easy to fit onto the walker and can be adjusted to suit the requirements of the patient.
