The Aircast AirHeel Ankle Brace is for achilles tendon and flat feet problems.

The AirHeel Ankle Braceis specifically designed to treat Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and heel pain. Using two interconnected aircells located under the foot arch and in the back of the heel, the AirHeel applies pulsating compression with every step to help reduce swelling and discomfort and enhance circulation. The Aircast AirHeel is made of lightweight breathable fabric and is simple to apply - just slip it on like a sock and adjust the fit with one strap.

- Pulsating pneumatic compression minimises swelling and enhances circulation.
- Lightweight materials and low profile design increases comfort.
- Simplified design speeds application.

- For Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and heel pain.

The AirHeel is available in three sizes: small, medium, and large.

    Eased pain but not entirely comfortable

    Posted by Carole on 5th Nov 2010

    Having suffered from Plantaar Fasciitis for nearly a year, I saw a Swedish specialist who advised me to buy one of these, as this was standard practice in his home country. I thought it strange that I should go away having to purchase something and was skeptical, but desperate enough to give ANYTHING a try. Running a pub and having an 8 year old daughter leaves me little time to sit down. I have found that the pain has eased tremendously - testament to the fact that i was actually able to go to a wedding reception and wear HIGH HEELS and dance the night away with only slight discomfort (I wasn't wearing the brace obviously) Something I would not have been able to do before. However, I have very narrow ankles and find it difficult to get a proper position for the Achilles heel pads to work completely effectively. It has to be put on really tightly and the air pads pulled down really low to work. After a couple of weeks I started to get itchiness around the back of the heel and had to stop wearing it. I have gone back to the arch supports I bought in Boots. But I would say that without the initial assistance from the air heel I would not be walking anywhere near as well as I am now and overall they are worth it, although expensive. I have also found that by combining the arch support and air cast at night it has helped to stretch the tendon at night which also helps with the heeling process.

    Perfect

    Posted by Mike on 2nd Aug 2010

    I've been struggling for a while with agonising stabbing pain in both my feet / heels for a good 12 months. Obviously having been backwards and forward to the go I finally got one with a brain who told me I had plantar fasciitis. Armed with this newfound information I was able to do my own research and came across this product. At first I was worried that their longevity was suspect as I had seen any reviews where others stated they were on their second or third pair. As I required two I figured my chances were higher to receive a dodgy support and lets face it at nearly 50 quid they're not cheap. I use both supports every day as I have a 2 mile journey to and from work totaling 4 miles a day. I'm roughly 12 stone or 76 kg and in the last 2 weeks I've started to jog again all while wearing the aircast supports. If I am on my feet for extended periods such as a night out the ache slowly appears but the pain is generally gone so they are definitely working. Testament to this is the fact I have started running again after nearly a year. As for racquet depot: When I ordered they sent me an email informing me that their supplier was out to stock but the would be getting another shipment on x date. True to their word the shipment arrived on that date. If you are an online retailer sometimes you can't control stock but what you can control is communication with your customers and in this regard I was very happy with racquet depot. Not only would I buy this product again but I would purchase it here as well.

    I can't believe how good the product is!

    I have PLANTAR FASCIITIS. I read reviews from other people to see what they thought of the brace, and it made my mind up to purchase one. It is very good. I wear mine everyday as I get so much pain. It really does help ease the pain to more of maybe an ache. I am glad I purchased mine and I would recommend it to anybody with a foot problem. I am thinking of getting another one as a spare as it is so good and works so well.
