Product Details

The Solid Ankle brace has been designed to offer the highest level of medial and lateral stability and control. The medial and lateral trim lines have been extended anterior to malleoli, increasing rigidity and restricting ankle movement.This brace must be worn with shoes to properly secure the foot. This device is constructed with a 4mm polypropylene shell that can be reduced to 3mm for flexibility or increased to 5mm or 6mm for greater control. For patients with a reducible valgus deformity or an inversion of the subtalar joint where the rearfoot is in varus, a valgus T-strap may be added to provide additional correction.
