If you could walk reasonably well, absolutely unassisted, prior to your injury or condition, then you can iWALK. The iWALK 2.0 can restore the mobility you lost due to your injury. It cannot provide you what you didn’t already have. That said, since every physique and every injury is unique, we recommend that you always consult with your health care professional before using the iWALK 2.0.
If you have a lower leg, ankle or foot injury that is required to be non-weight bearing during recovery, then, in most instances, iWALK 2.0 will work for you.
Typical injuries include (but are not limited to) any sprain, strain, fracture, dislocation or surgery to the lower leg, ankle or foot. Common conditions we experience are sprained ankles; fractures of the lower leg, foot or ankle; ankle fusion surgery; Achilles tendon injuries and surgeries; broken heels; foot surgeries such as bunion or foot ulcer correction.
iWALK 2.0 is also useful as a gateway device during prosthetic limb transition periods or as a shower / swim prosthetic for users of permanent prosthetic limbs. In short, if you’ve sustained an injury to your lower calf, ankle or foot, and you need to be non-weight bearing, then iWALK 2.0 can be used instead of conventional crutches.The iWalk 2.0 works with plaster casts and air boots.
