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.

 

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 Southern Tas Podiatry Clinic 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.
Can I Hire A CAM Walker?

Unfortunately due to hygiene reasons these boots cannot be hired out. We do sell CAM walkers, and they don’t cost as much as you would think. Rather than paying the hundreds of dollars hospitals charge you for a CAM walker, we offer inexpensive options and FREE fitting with purchase of the boot and it is yours to keep.

If you have a foot injury that requires you to be in a moon boot for a period of time we can provide you with an inexpensive and effective treatment for bony foot pathologies.
