Shattered ankle


I suffered a shattered ankle in a motorcycle freeway accident over a year ago.
I also have 13 pins and 2 plates in my anlke as well.
My question is will this device help support my ankle and make walking easier and less painful for me. And if so, which would be best for me?


  1. I shattered my right ankle on 4-19-08 having 2 plates, 2 pins, and 13 screws…being placed in a boot..Dr told me 8 weeks of non bearing weight. I go for 1 month follow up tomorrow on the 22nd of may….will post follow up results

  2. i just wanted to find out what the average recovery time is when you have a shattered ankl after surgery i have one pin and two screws
