BOA Compression System
Dial BOA Compression System was designed to use it in the snowboard shoes , because ordinary shoelace was too weak in extreme using. Typical shoestring sprang and snowboard shoes wasn’t casing construction what could allow using the steel fastening.
Steel wire and polyamide grommets allow to use steel fastening. Later, this system was used in other sport shoes such as: professional shoes for cycling or running.
In orthopaedic field the compression system was adapted early and it’s used in e.g. ankle, wrist or back braces. The system is characterized by firm fastening that is non-elastic, easy and secure. There is impossible to loose (only in case of damage) it what guarantees the best stabilization.
Our BOA System provides different levels of compression. It’s based on differential polyamide grommets , steel wires covered by plastic and knobs. The additional equipment is the special element that is easy to attach what allows to modify device’s shape or circumference.
The BOA System is the compression solution so you can use it only after putting the brace on the body.
