Play without Fear: One of the mottos of Active Ankle! If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, is our body only as strong as its weakest link? The answer is yes and the weakest link is the ankle. According to research, this is the most vulnerable place on the body and so, needs the best protection.
Offering the active ankle brace since 1989, Active Ankle has concentrated on developing the best product with the most support and they are certainly getting there quick. They haven't stopped working on improving the brace they offer and they won't stop until they find a solution for the needs of every person who needs ankle support but doesn't want to sacrifice comfort.
The T1 offers a neoprene padding system, two straps and a bilateral hinge that is great for protecting instability, for preventative use or rehabilitative use.
The T2 offers a quick fitting single adjustable strap and this brace hugs the ankle, following its natural curves for a great fit.
Both these braces offer comfort and protection and can be worn easily with all shoes. The polypropylene heel plate transfers pain away from injured ankle areas and can be placed so that it is beneath the inside sole of the shoe. The bilateral hinge lines up and matches the ankles natural alignment and allows unrestricted plantar and dorsiflexion motion.
