After surgery, injury, or infection to the lower leg, foot or ankle,
you may be instructed to avoid putting weight on the affected limb —
“non-weight-bearing.” Complying with these orders is difficult,
particularly when wearing a cast or orthotic, and moving around on crutches
or a crutch alternative walker. Have you been looking for walking aids?
As rehab progresses, adjustable shoulder straps work in conjunction with
the bungee cord to allow increasing amounts of pressure on the foot (called
“toe-touch” and “partial-weight-bearing”) until
the patient can walk normally.
