The MalleoLoc Ankle Brace supports weak, unstable ankles while enabling normal range-of-motion of the ankle joint. The outside stay of this adjustable brace fits just ahead of the outside ankle bone (fibula) while the inner stay fits just behind the medial ankle bone (tibia.) The unique design of the MalleoLoc Ankle Brace leaves the foot open for maximal dorsiflexion and plantarflexion while limiting inversion and eversion of the ankle. This focus on sagittal plane motion improves your game by allowing the ankle to stay more active.
The MalleoLoc Ankle Brace is the perfect stabilizer for sports and one of the best rigid ankle supports that volleyball, soccer, and basketball players should wear. Figure 8 Velcro strapping remains secure with the most vigorous activity, protecting against ankle instability. Brace components are color-coded for easy application. Heat moldable for custom fit. Fits most shoes. Latex-free. Right/left specific. By Bauerfeind. 1/pkg.
