Product description

With each step, the Aircast AirHeel provides intermittent compression through an aircell under the plantar arch interacting with an aircell surrounding the Achilles tendon. These air-cells produce pulsating compression during ambulation that helps minimize swelling and discomfort and provides rapid pain relief.

5.0 out of 5 stars This helped me out so much!! 12 April 2015
By Bear Bear - Published on Amazon.com

I am so glad I ordered the large Aircast Airheel Foot and and Ankle Brace. One of the side effects of a antibiotic I took was achilles tendonitis. Between the pain in my achilles tendon and the intense, sharp, burning pain in my heel, I have barely been able to walk on that foot some days. After looking at the reviews, I was not sure what size to order. I took a measurement on my calf just above my ankle. It was 10 inches. My arch was also 10 inches. I wear a size 10 mens shoe and an 11 to 12 women's shoe. I decided to order the large because of what other reviewers had written. The large size fits perfectly. When the velcro strap is tightened above my ankle, I have plenty of velcro available. In fact, there is about 1 1/2 inches of extra velcro available. When I wear the aircast with my socks, it takes away about 90% of the pain I was in before. It is amazing. The air cushion support protects and cushions all of the proper areas so the achilles tendon and my heel are in much less pain. I have much less swelling in my foot as well. When I wear the aircast with my tennis shoes, I have 100% pain relief. I am so thankful for this product and looking forward to becoming more mobile and working towards healing this achilles tendonitis.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flat Feet? What a disaster these are. 9 Mar. 2017
By DC - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Having read the reviews I decided to give these a try. Big mistake.

I wear a size 12.5 2e shoe and have flat feet with very little arch. I wear top notch shoes from New Balance, specifically with proper stabilization and caters to flat feet. I've had a achillies tendonosis issue the past few months and am working through it. I figured this is just another tool to aid in the rehabilitation.

Boy was I wrong. Putting them on is easy enough and sizing of the large was ample. Then put on shoes and I immediately thought "Uh oh". The air bladder in the bottom is right on the arch.

Well, I had to give them a good try. So I did my yard work, but after a half hour my arch's hurt so bad I had to take them off. You cannot jam arch support into a foot that has almost no arch. These also didn't help with the plantar nor achillies. I'm better off with nothing and just dealing with the little bit of pain. I think it is very strange to have the air support jamming into the foot arch.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've got plantar fasciitis, run (gently), don't walk, to get one of these! 7 May 2016
By LD Rabbit - Published on Amazon.com

My podiatrist recommended this brace after a year in which I've been fighting plantar fasciitis, and it's saved me. The padding goes under the arch, providing support and presumably also stretching the plantar tendon with each step. It doesn't actually cushion the heel itself. But what it does do--and this is brilliant, whether intended or not--is that it essentially lifts the heel up off the ground, preventing it from striking the ground at all. So for the first time in a year I found myself walking, not with less pain, but with no pain whatsoever. This in turn seems to have allowed my heel to begin to recover and repair itself. Of course, I continue to do all of the requisite stretching, and it's finally starting to pay off. For full disclosure, I also allowed the podiatrist to give me a cortisone shot, which helped a bit but wasn't at all a magic bullet. If I didn't wear the Aircast, my heel still would hurt a lot, even after the shot. I believe it's the weeks of relief from striking the ground, coupled with the continued stretching, that have finally allowed my heel to begin heal.

One caution: If you walk around a lot with the Aircast on, you're slightly throwing your body out of alignment because it lifts your right side a bit. I tend to get a light of tightness and cramping in my right side, and wearing the Aircast exacerbated that. So I had to take a few days off to allow my right side to loosen up. Others may not have this problem at all. But we're leaving on a trip that will entail lots of walking, so I've bought a second one and will wear it on my good foot so my body will be even. This is a consideration for people who have back issues, etc.

One more point: there's a place in the back where a thin plastic liner sticks out and can rub annoyingly--even painfully--into your Achilles tendon. I took a small scissors and cut out the offending and unnecessary plastic. Took two minutes and now it's fine.

Some reviewers have complained of the device deflating. I've been wearing it for weeks, and no such problem.

If you've got plantar fasciitis, run (gently), don't walk, to get one of these!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great relief until it popped the day after the warranty expired 5 May 2016
By Nicholas S. Harman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It worked great. I felt relief immediately after wearing it but it popped the day after the warranty expired (31 days). I can't even figure out how it happened. I hope this was just a defective one. I will order another.

Pros:
-Immediate relief on with my plantar fasciitis and my Achilles.
-easy to put on and take off
-you can feel it working

Cons:
- plastic edges where the air pouches were fused together cut my skin until the became flexible (1 week). Could easily be fixed with another piece of fabric sewn around the ankle pouch.
- popped the day after the warranty expired. (31 days)
- can be trouble fitting into tighter shoes or boots with thick socks
- must align it dead center of your Achilles and foot for maximum effectiveness.

I will order again and adjust my rating depending on how the new one works

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Achilles tendonitis. I can wear my shoes again. 5 Oct. 2016
By Denny Dale - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have Achilles tendonitis which is painful and shoes with a heal hurts to much to wear. This is my second Air-Heal because the first worked so well that I didn't want to take a chance of being without on. Though mine has worked perfectly for several months, there are comments that the air pocket can rupture. Now I have a second Air-Heel in case that happens to mine. With the Air-Heal I can wear most of my shoes again.
