Rehab Braces and Equipment

Cold Therapy, Walking Boots and Knee Immobilizers

Cold Therapy

Cryotherapy units post-surgery are becoming increasingly popular to minimize swelling and reduce/manage pain.  Some insurance companies have begun reimbursing the purchase price.  We suggest contacting your extended benefits provider to see if they cover the cost of this unit.

We carry both the Polar Care and the Kodiak units as well as individual wraps specific to the effected area. Both devices come with a cooler which circulates cool water while plugged in.  These devices are multi use appliances and can be worn while doing daily activities. View our products here.

Walking Boots and Achilles Rupture Boots

Whether you are looking for a simple “stick and foam” walking boot with a rocker bottom, or a rigid rocker bottom healing boot to stabilize a fracture or a strain, we are able to supply you with the appropriate boot.

These rehabilitation boots come in sizes XS-XL and have a straight last, meaning they can be worn on either foot. Replacement liners are available to be sold separately.

In addition, Achilles Tendon boots are prescribed by a physician for an Achilles rupture or tear. The major difference between these and a walking boot is that individual dense foam lifts will be placed in the boot, as instructed by your Orthopaedic Surgeon, and are gradually removed during the healing process. View our products here.

Knee Immobilizers

Immediately after surgery or knee injury it is common that people will be prescribed an immobilizer/rehabilitation knee brace.  These are often 16-20” long with metal stays which can be locked in full extension and later adjusted for flexion and extension as determined by your healthcare professional.  These braces are easily adjusted and come with a foam liner and Velcro straps.  These braces are meant for temporary use and the average lifespan for wearing is 6-12 months as determined by your health care professional. View our products here.
