Fitting

The technique for fitting CAM Walkers varies on the type of CAM Walker and the manufacturer. At times customisation may be required.

For example:In cases of ulcers, a customised insole may need to be fitted in to the CAM Walker to offload pressure from the affected area under the foot.

We recommend visiting a qualified professional (Podiatrist) to get one fitted.


Pneumatic CAM Walkers

Pneumatic CAM Walkers are boots with an air valve or air bladder which is used to pump air in to the inner lining of the pneumatic walker. The air system comfortably contours the swelling patterns during the rehabilitation process.This provides a custom fit and more support.


Offloading CAM Walkers

Offloading CAM Walkers usually contain a customisable insole. Customisation takes place by shaping/removing the part of the insole to contour the corresponding (affected) area below the foot.


ROM Walkers

ROM is an abbreviation for Range Of Motion. The range of motion of the foot and ankle area is regulated by two hinges which can adjust the range of motion in increments. Some ROM Walkers allow a range of 0 - 45 which can be adjusted in 7.5 increments.
