Re: broken tibia and fibia

In september 98, I was in a severe car accident where my left leg went through the windshield of the car I was riding. Resulting in a broken tibia and fibia along with other injuries. 8 years later I am just now feeling the debths of my injuries having been only 16 at the time of the accident, I had no idea how much trouble this would cause. 2 children and several falls later I have broken all of the hardware in my leg. If anyone has had there hardware removed and would suggest I do the same please send me an e-mail. I cannot go on living like this

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
