OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com asked Ian Winson, past president of the Bristish Orthopaedic Association and experienced foot and ankle surgeon, from Sport and Orthopaedic Clinic why he thought this was our best selling product.

Ian Winson, Foot and Ankle Surgeon and former President of the British Orthopaedic Association and of the European Foot and Ankle Society, prescribes many Aircast Walkers for his patients so he should know. Ian said "When you are going to live with your XP Walker™, XP Diabetic Walker™ or FP Walker™ for more than the treatment time you expected you are going to need an extra sock or two. The original XP Walker comes with a long fluffy warm sock that is difficult to replace with something else from you sock drawer. When you have enjoyed the comfort of the Original Aircast Sock that comes with your Walker then nothing else will do". Buy one as a gift for a loved one or friend!

Knee Osteoarthritis

Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis of the knee is due to degenerate changes that have occured in the hyaline cartilage on the surface of the bones. When one compartment is affected the cause is usually mechanical in nature. It begins with a traumatic or non-traumatic degenerate tear of the meniscus (left). It is usually the medial meniscus. The unstable portion causes high pressure degenerate change of the surface which in most cases progress to frank osteoarthritis within 2-10 years. The radiological diagnosis of osteoarthritis is loss of joint space, subchondral sclerosis, subchondral cysts and marginal osteophyte formation. The rate of this progression depends on a number of biomechanical factors. Depending on these factors, once the unstable meniscal tear and the unstable chondral damage has been treated you might recommend an OA Lite for the patient with advanced arthritis not yet ready for joint replacement.
