Re: Broken Fibula

I personallywould put the patient with this in a cast boot. If the fracture is in perfect alignment and the patient will be non weight bearing on crutches, then maybe no cast is ok.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
