What is a CAM Boot?
CAM/Moon Boots are a valuable medical device for patients suffering from acute foot or ankle issues. These devices effectively support the healing process, alleviate pain, and enhance mobility. The purpose of CAM (Controlled Ankle Mobility) Boots is to minimise foot and ankle motion and alleviate pressure, thereby facilitating recovery from a wide array of injuries.
Some injuries that some people require a CAM boot for include:
- Broken foot or ankle bones
- Stress Fractures
- Ruptured ligaments
- Severe ankle sprains
- Acute foot or ankle pain
- Foot ulcers

Getting a CAM Boot
If you have been advised by another medical practitioner that you require a CAM boot, we highly recommend scheduling a CAM Boot Fitting appointment with one of our professional Podiatrists. We conveniently offer a comprehensive range of CAM Boots at our locations in Point Cook, Avondale Heights, and Yarraville. To ensure availability, kindly inform us of your foot size when making your appointment.
During this consultation, your Podiatrist will briefly evaluate your condition, fit you for a CAM boot and provide a CAM boot management plan to ensure your safety and wellbeing. This plan will not only guide you through the recovery process while wearing the CAM boot but also aid in preventing future injuries once you transition out of it.
