Sport Stirrup Ankle Brace Product Review
The sport Stirrup Ankle Brace offers a customized fit for either the left or the right ankle, supporting the ankle while the wearer continues to participate in sports or daily life.
Sport Stirrup Ankle Brace Product Features
This orthopedic support device includes the following features:
- The wearer of this Stirrup ankle brace can simply place a heel in the stirrup that connects the two sides, positions the rigid plastic shell on either side of the injured ankle, and fasten the Velcro straps to hold the shells in place over the ankle.
- The soft plastic inserts are composed of already inflated cells of air that provide padding and cushioning to the ankle bones and surrounding soft tissues. Cushioned air filled bladders, which can be adjusted by adding or removing air with the included air pump, pad the injured ankle between the plastic outer shells, while a pair of fabric Velcro straps hold the sides in place.
- The bottom portion of the brace has been designed in a streamlined configuration so it can easily slip into whatever shoe the wearer wishes to use.
- Braces for the right and left ankle are individually designed, so the wearer should take care to order for the desired ankle to ensure the desired fit and support during wear.
What Buyers Like About the Sport Stirrup Ankle Brace
Buyers enjoy these features of the orthopedic support:
- Because the ankle brace is designed for a specific ankle (right or left, as the wearer needs), its fit is customized to the curve of ankle and protrusion of ankle bone, making a very comfortable fit for extended use.
- Many people who need this level of support will also need to be wearing the brace for an extended period of time. A fracture or severe strain that needs to be supported is also slow to heal. During the length of time needed for healing, this brace can be comfortably worn and washed when needed.
- The plastic components, including the hard outer shells and the softer plastic air bladders, can easily be sprayed down and washed as needed. Because there are not fabric components to this brace, it does not absorb perspiration or odors, and it remains far more durable than fabric supports and wraps.
- Unlike some models, this brace easily fits inside an athletic shoe because of its thoughtful streamlined design.
What Buyers Don’t Like About the Sport Stirrup Ankle Brace
Unlike some models of orthopedic support designed for ankles, this brace is specifically designed for either the right ankle or the left ankle, and so cannot be switched from one side to the other. The customized fit of the brace more than makes up for its single purpose use, however and most users are purchasing it only for a specific single ankle in any case.
The sport Stirrup Ankle Brace is an affordable alternative to a full walking cast for people who suffer from chronically weak ankles or who are recovering from a fracture or soft tissue injury.
