ONE-SIDE UPRIGHT ANKLE BRACE WITH ANATOMIC LATERAL SHELL
Lateral ligament injury of the ankle
Injury of the ankle lateral ligaments is common after sudden change of direction (foot in inversion) on the rough surface, especially in the grass, and when the athlete fall onto the other’s foot after jumping, so we can notice it mostly in basketball, volleyball and football (soccer). Unfortunately, everybody can sustain this kind of injury, even during walking.
Classic mechanism of lateral ligament injury is the inversion connected with plantar flexion of the foot. First, tibiofibular ligament is ruptured and then calcaneofibular ligament. Tearing all of the ligaments causes joint dislocation and ankle fracture. The patient can hear sound of crack or pop while contusion. For athlete this often means failure of the physical activity and trainings.
To prevent this situation, we introduced ankle brace AM-OSS-06, called KICKER and, because of unique construction, it is recommended for lateral ligaments protection.
One-side upright ankle brace with lateral anatomic shell KICKER is the best solution for active people. It stabilises and prevents against the twisting (inversion) of ankle joint.
KICKER is the innovative brace on the market, because it has only one lateral shell that doesn’t limit the range of motion and can be worn with sturdy shoes. The shell is anatomic-shaped what provides excellent stabilisation. It’s made of polyamide and, by covering the lateral malleolus, prevents it against the bonk and fracture in contact sports.
Our ankle brace is comfortable for patient’s malleolus because of soft lateral support in shell. Openwork material allows skin to breathe easy.
Innovation construction and soft strap passing underneath the sole provide much better stabilisation in contrast to other plastic shells supports.
The Velcro strap makes the brace easy to put on and take off and allows to use in even in tight sport shoes.
The brace is made of AirPren.
AirPren is 3-layered lamination made of: external elastic self-gripping polyamide, neoprene foam inside and elastic polyamide spacer fabric 3D. This lamination is soft and high-elastic. Braces, made of AirPren, are very durable and effective. Internal 3D knitted mesh provides high air permeability and minimal water and moisture absorption. Waterproof material.
