It is a soft version of a cast with velcro straps. They come in short styles and to the knee styles. They enable you to walk with comfort while protecting your injury. CAM's are also more comfortable than a cast and you can take it off unlike the cast. I hope this helps to answer your question even though I am sure it is not the best description available. :)
