Re: Broken Foot Questions

I remember when these cast boots came on the market. I was so happy I wouldn't have to put casts on (and take them off too). However, I have found that some patients think they can wear this like an accessory and don't think that they need to sleep in it. I remind them if they were in a cast, they would certainly sleep in it.

I have used many different brands of these and have yet to find the perfect device. I always have a supply of foam that I buy at a fabric store so I can cut pieces and put them in the cast boot to cushion and snug it up as it stretches out. Patients almost always love this and say why didn't they think of that?

You might go to the fabric store and buy a piece of foam usually 1" thick. Cut pieces of it and pad your foot top and bottom.

Hope this helps
