Fracture Management

CAM WALKER (Moon Boot)

Controlled Ankle Movement (CAM) Walkers or MoonBoots immobilise the foot and ankle following a lower limb fracture, ligament strain or other lower limb injury.  Considered as the “modern day” plaster cast, CAM Walkers allow most patients to ambulate without the need for crutches or walking sticks.

CAM Walkers take partial weight off the foot and ankle and feature a rocker sole to allow patients to ambulate sooner and more comfortably without hindering the fracture healing process.


Important To Note:

Dependent on the severity of the injury, some patients may not be permitted to fully weight bear on their effected side immediately and may require the use of assistive devices. Your management plan should always be discussed with your managing Orthotist and doctor prior to initiating the use of a CAM Walker.


Benefits of a CAM Walker

  • More comfortable, hygienic and durable than plaster/synthetic casts
  • Easy to don and doff with Velcro fastenings
  • Easy to adjust for optimal comfort and fit
  • Can accommodate for swelling and volume changes
  • Designed to allow early weight bearing
  • Allows patients to return to work and activities of daily living earlier
  • Removable for showering and washing

Important Considerations

  • You should not drive with a CAM Walker
  • Wear appropriate footwear for the unaffected foot
  • Beware of the unlikely incident of a blood clot (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Don’t hesitate to call us if you have a question or concern and a review appointment if needed
