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.
