How to Apply
Remove the liner from the brace. The air badder is inside the liner. DO NOT inflate the bladder at this time. Wrap the liner around the patient's leg and foot. Ensure the heel fits snugly into the portion first followed by the calf portion. The wrap should fit snug, but not too tight. Note - it may be necessary to adjust the fit of the wrap if swelling or edema decreases during the healing process. Attach one end of the straps onto the boot. The foot should be positioned flat with the heel in back of the boot. Affix the uprights to the liner. The uprights should be positioned parallel to the leg. Close the straps starting at the toes and working up the leg. Adjust the straps if necessary.
How to Inflate
The air bladder can now be inflated to proved a customized fit. To inflate, use the bulb on the front of the strap. Squeeze the bulb repeatedly to inflate. Inflate until the support feels stable with gentle cushioning but not too tight. IMPORTANT - DO NOT OVER INFLATE. Only inflate to a comfortable level. Instruct the patient to check circulation to ensure not too tight. Air may be released from the bladder if needed. To release air, turn the white knob and squeeze the liner to deflate. If slight air loss is experienced with extended wear, simply re-inflate following instructions.
To clean, simply wipe a damp cloth . DO NOT submerge the liner in water - this could affect the functioning of the air bladder. Air dry away from heat. Do not machine wash or dry. Do not bleach. Spot clean the brace with a damp cloth if needed.
Wear as recommended. Always consult a physician when encountering persistent pain, discomfort, inflammation or swelling.
