DJO Global's Leading Product Is Completely Updated With The Launch Of AirSelect™ Walking Boots

SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DJO Global, Inc., a global provider of medical device solutions for musculoskeletal health, vascular health and pain management, today announced the launch of its AirSelect suite of high-performance walking boots. Showcased under DJO Global's Aircast brand, the market leader in walking boots for more than three decades, AirSelect incorporates patented technological advancements that speed the healing of stable fractures of the lower leg, foot and ankle and severe ankle sprains, reduce edema and enhance patient comfort.

AirSelect Elite is the only boot on the market with a selector dial and integrated inflation system, which allows patients to select each aircell independently for a truly customized fit. This specific inflation system provides the ultimate combination for overall better outcomes allowing for intuitive application and adjustment.

Aircast has long been recognized as the industry pioneer in pneumatic compression boots and AirSelect Elite's state-of-the-art Duplex technology layers multiple aircells into the shell to provide the pulsating compression that has shown in clinical trials to reduce edema as much as three times faster than with traditional devices, relieve pain and speed healing.

To mitigate the chances for impact-related stresses and heel loading, AirSelect Elite incorporates the innovative SoftStrike technology that puts a matrix of shock-absorbing material in direct contact with the heel for structured cushioning, and provides an optimized rocker sole to encourage a natural gait. 

Finally, the AirSelect Elite's shell design incorporates structurally engineered vents to maximize airflow and minimize mass, making it the lightest full-shell boot on the market. 

"The AirSelect walking boot provides a custom fit like a cast with the comfort and cushion of air.  The design is novel with an easy to use dial and a patented cushioned heel for shock absorption. The low profile, gentle rockersole makes it easy to walk.  My patients will love it," said Judith F. Baumhauer, MD, MPH, and Professor and Associate Chair of Academic Affairs, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Foot and Ankle Division at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

"After wearing the AirSelect boot for a stress fracture, I found the form and fit outstanding.  There is a great deal of force dissipation from heel impact to toe off.  The rocker bottom design is superior," said Dr. Thomas H. Lee, board-certified orthopedic surgeon with the Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center in Westerville, OH.  "There is a great deal of ease in applying it on and off due to the design of the air bladder and the release value."

AirSelect Elite is one of three products in the suite of new AirSelect walking boots, which also include AirSelect Standard and AirSelect Short. 

"Our lightest Aircast walking boots ever, AirSelect brings clinically tested innovations that improve comfort, compliance and outcomes. It is the ultimate combination; offering superior comfort and faster healing. No other walking boots offer more," said Steve Ingel, President of DJO Global's Bracing & Supports business unit.

DJO Global will be located in booth #3039 at the AAOS meeting.
