There are lighter casts available on the market that certainly allow for greater ease of movement. They are lighter and therefore require less energy to move around. It should give you the stability that you need, but will also promote healing as you move further and further into weight bearing. For instance, Medac makes a short leg cast that is considerably lighter and supports the leg by way of air-filled pockets. It is aptly named the FoamWalker and runs at about R950 to R1000 depending on where you purchase it. So the original quote was indeed correct.
