Whether you are a ballplayer, cheerleader or a coach you need to know about the ASO Ankle Brace! I love this ankle brace! For anyone who needs good support for a weak ankle or support for an ankle that has been injured, the ASO ankle brace is wonderful.
Have you ever tried to fit an ankle brace into a shoe? It usually means that you have to move up a full shoe size, which in turn means more out-of-pocket money. I was delighted to find that the ASO ankle brace fit easily into my shoe and it is comfortable as well! The patented stabilizing straps mimic athletic taping (which is also more time consuming). However, while normal athletic tape stretches and gives after being worn for a time (and does not return to its former shape), the ASO does not and it has straps that do not stretch and can be retightened anytime without even removing the shoe!
The ASO is extremely durable and is made of thin, double-layered ballistic nylon, which provides superior strength and support. The nylon stabilizing straps "Lock the Heel" in a figure-8 fashion for extra support and the neoprene tongue pads the lacing area for comfort. The supports of the ASO ankle brace hold the ankle in a neutral position, reducing injuries and re-injuries.
The great support, comfort and economy of this ankle brace has made it a professionalís choice for effective treatment and prevention of ankle injuries. So if you need to protect a weak ankle, especially during exercise or sports activities, check out the ASO Ankle Brace from Medical Specialties, Inc. Made for either the left or the right ankle and available in black or white, the ASO Ankle Brace delivers superior results and the ASO brace is worn by players in the NBA and WNBA, plus many other players across the country!
Some comments made about the ASO brace are:
"This is the best ankle support system I have seen yet... This is now the only product I'll recommend". Meconi, Head Basketball Coach.
"Our basketball players have had a dramatic decrease in ankle injuries... the incidents of sprains do not seem to be as serious as the girls who do not wear the braces." Diulus, Athletic Director
"Before the ASO... We compared many less expensive vs. very expensive lace-up vs. neoprene with velcro supports... we found the ASO was the only ankle stabilizer that met the physician's and the certified athletic trainer's criteria." White, UPMC Center for Sports Medicine
