The Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is designed to meet the needs of demanding athletes. It features 800D ballistic nylon and reinforced eyelet area for outstanding performance and durability. A full circumferential elastic strap secures all strapping and provides tibia/fibula compression and stability. Lace-up design and trimmable figure-8 strapping locks the calcaneus into place and controls inversion/eversion. Removable, articulated medial/lateral stays enhance proprioception and stability. Fits easily into an athletic or street shoe. Universal to fit right and left.
A recent study of over 2,000 high school football players proves that wearing the Stabilizing Ankle Brace reduces the incidence of acute ankle injury by 61%. Wearing the brace did not increase the incidence or severity of acute knee injuries or other lower extremity injuries. Bracing also offers a low-cost alternative to athletic tape.
