Orthotics And Beyond has recently added extended sizing for medical walking boots and accessories to accommodate individuals with very small or very large feet and legs. With numerous cam boot walker styles available, the selection of an appropriate solution to suit both a given orthopedic condition and a nonaverage anatomy can be challenging. While patients should always consult their healthcare professional regarding use of an orthopedic walking boot, such recommendations should not be limited to the practice inventory as is frequently the case. Special consideration is required when the lower extremity dimensions lie outside the average anatomical statistics that drive cam walker boot design and such business issues as facility inventory. These situations arise with pediatric sizes, very small feet (i.e., < size 4-5), very large feet (i.e., > 13-14), large calves relative to a given foot size, and short lower leg length relative to foot size. In addition, compliance-related issues including dexterity for donning/doffing, flexibility and reach, postoperative dressings, and even local climate (e.g., warm and humid vs. wet and cold) should be considered in order to facilitate a comfortable and convenient healing experience.
    With products and practice inventories focused on the statistical majority of lower extremity injuries for patients in the anatomical average set, Orthotics And Beyond has expanded its cam boot walker line to better serve under-represented individuals with special anatomical characteristics and the medical facilities that serve them. To address the inevitable daily usage issues (e.g., soil, perspiration, odor development, etc.) that arise over the typical six to nine week wear cycle of a medical walking boot, we also have expanded our line of spare parts and replacement walking boot liners to improve early and late stage compliance and comfort as individuals return to their daily activities.
