EvenUp Comment from a Patient when wearing a Removable Boot
I do have one note about Even-ups. I used an Even-up and it really does work well. Walking without one while using an aircam is horrendous on the hips. However, I think they are too heavy. After two months with the extra weight on my shoe, the tendons at the back of my right knee (the one with the Even-up) started to tweak in pain, which started to really irritate after a week or so. So I cam up with a low-cost alternative. I duct-taped a flip-flop to the bottom of my New Balance Walking Shoe. I looked like a dork, but it worked great! And it only cost $6.
Dr Blake's comment: Thank you!!
