Fixed Air Shield Walker 14″ – Pneumatic walker Boot
The purpose of a walking boot in treating plantar fasciitis/heel pain is to reduce tension on the plantar fascia so that the fascia can rest and heal. For many patients, it is the only thing that provides enough protection for the area to recover and still allows the person to walk around. In addition, it can act to reduce pressure on the heel.
Fixed Air Shield Walker 14″ also known as Cam (controlled ankle movement) Walker, is a medical device worn during the treatment and recovery of various foot injuries. Walking boots allow you to rest your foot while still walking around and doing your day-to-day activities. And walkers are not just for fractures. They can also be prescribed for heel pain, ball of foot pain, tendinitis and other problems. One of the best ways to heal a foot or ankle problem is to rest it. But it’s hard to rest your foot and still carry on your normal activities. A controlled ankle motion walking Boot, or CAM boot, also called a below-knee walking boot, can be prescribed to treat and stabilize severe sprains, fractures, and tendon or ligament tears in the ankle or foot. What injuries require a boot?
- Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Pain
- Ball of Foot Pain
- Ankle Sprain
- Metatarsal Stress Fracture
- Toe Fracture

Fixed Air Shield Walker 14″ for Plantar Fasciitis
The purpose of a walking boot in treating plantar fasciitis/heel pain is to reduce tension on the plantar fascia so that the fascia can rest and heal. For many patients, it is the only thing that provides enough protection for the area to recover and still allows the person to walk around. In addition, it can act to reduce pressure on the heel. How long does it take to wear it? Most patients wear the Boot for plantar fasciitis for 7 – 14 days, depending on the severity of heel pain. Tall or Short Boot? Either one. Most people are more comfortable in the tall Boot as it does not irritate the shin. But if you are short, you might want to use the fast-walking Boot.
Hints: Use arch support inside the Boot to take more tension off the plantar fascia. We recommend the FootChair Orthotic with Adjustable Arch Height. This arch support has pads that can be inserted to increase the arch height for a customized fit. Plantar fasciitis uses the highest arch that you find comfortable.
