Key features and benefits:
How to wear:1. The ankle support is to be worn over a sock. Hold the brace on either side and pull it over the foot like a shoe. Feed the laces through each of the eyelets as if lacing up a shoe and tie them at the top of the brace.
2. Pull the medial strap (inside strap) across the upper foot and tightening until it is comfortably snug, secure the fastener on the outside of your ankle.
3. Pull the lateral strap (outside strap) across the mid foot, tightening until it is comfortably snug, secure the fastener on the inside of your ankle. Now that the brace is in position, adjust the medial and lateral straps as needed to achieve the desired tension.
4. Finally, wrap the elastic top strap horizontally around your ankle to cover the laces and secure the figure 8 straps in position.
May be suitable for: Ligament InjuriesLigament injuries in the ankle joint are very common particularly amongst sportspeople. The lateral ligament is composed of three parts (ATFL, CFL, PTFL). The ATFL is the most commonly damaged ligament in lateral ligament injuries. When all three parts are damaged the ankle joint dislocates and may result in a fracture. Lateral ligament injuries are often seen in sports which require quick change in direction such as netball and football.
The medial (deltoid) ligament is much stronger than the lateral ligament and is therefore injured much less frequently. When damaged, the medial ligament may require prolonged rehabilitation before returning to activity.
