VACOped Achilles Injury/Fracture Orthosis Boot is the number one choice of patients and physicians alike for treating Achilles injuries. It has an adjustable, articulating ankle feature for dynamic settings such as plantar flexion and controlled Range of Motion (ROM) thus allowing and enabling an active recovery.

When walking in a boot, there can be a leg length discrepancy that can cause strain on your hips, which can become painful to deal with. Try our EVENup Shoe Lift to alleviate the discomfort associated with this discrepancy!
