CAM Walkers

CAM walkers (controlled ankle movement), which are commonly referred to as “moon boots”, immobilise the foot and ankle where a person has sustained a fracture, ligament strain or a lower limb injury that requires immobilisation to aid with recovery. Cam Walkers are usually worn for several weeks to prevent ankle movement while allowing weight bearing to continue.

If you are interested in purchasing a CAM Walker please contact us or book an appointment and see us at one of our clinics.

Why a CAM walker?

When comparing the benefits of CAM walker to a traditional plaster cast there are many worth noting. Not only can the CAM walker can be taken off with ease for the purposes of showering they are designed to walked in without the requirement for crutches (some injuries will still require crutches in the early stages of use).

Things To Know

Sole Podiatry advises wearers of a moon boot to wear a shoe of matching heel height on the other foot to ensure that any unevenness of the individual lower limbs is accommodated for when standing or walking. Patients that wear the moon boot for an extended period of time may experience hip and lower back pain if measures are not taken to support the uninjured limb.
