BENEFITS of ANKLE GUARDS

NETBALL
Netball is one of Australia & New Zealand's most popular female team sports but more recently it has expanded to Men’s & Mixed competitions.
The technical skills and physical demands of the sport on the player can be great. As a result, injuries do occur, the most common areas are ankles & knees (the lower leg area) and the wrist, hand and fingers which are commonly used to break the players fall as a natural reaction.

The REASON for these netball injuries in the ANKLE REGION are:
 Awkward landings, Player contact/collision, Slips or falls (poor court surface), Tiredness and  Sudden change of direction on court

RESULTING in Bruising, Fractures, Sprains, Muscle Tears and Dislocations

IN A RECENT STUDY OF NETBALL PLAYERS FROM the A.I.S.* elite programme, THEY SUMMARISED
"We did observe a reduction in ankle rotation (inversion/eversion) when wearing the shoes with a brace compared to the standard netball shoes during single leg landing and side stepping."

Many elite players use *Rigid Strapping Tape as a method to support their Ankles although very good for protecting ankles it is a costly exercise when done for every game!

Ankle guards are a quick and easy way to give your ankles support without the cost.
 
 
BASKETBALL
 
Basketball is a sport played mainly on indoor courts and is especially popular with kids.
The extensive stop, go and cutting maneuvers puts stress on the Ankle & Knee Regions with Fingers also common injuries. With children it is important to try and prevent injuries while growth plates are forming and in ankle region guards are a good way to do this but as always any injuries should always be assessed properly by a physician.

Injuries in Basketball to the Ankle Region are very similar to Netball for all the same reasons
Awkward landings, Player contact/collision, Slips or falls (poor court surface), Tiredness and Sudden change of direction on court
 
VOLLEYBALL
 
Like other 'Court Sports' Tennis is very demanding on the ankles with sharp changes of direction while striking the tennis ball with the racket. This action commonly compounds the problem putting the player off balance and landing awkardly causing a strain or sprain to the ankle area.
For this reason many top players use ankle guards to minmise the risk of the ankle rolling over by give additional support with a brace or guard
 
TENNIS

Like other 'Court Sports' Tennis is very demanding on the ankles with sharp changes of direction while striking the tennis ball with the racket. This action commonly compounds the problem putting the player off balance and landing awkardly causing a strain or sprain to the ankle area.
For this reason many top players use ankle guards to minmise the risk of the ankle rolling over by give additional support with a brace or guard

Good product
Very good cheaper version of more expensive known brands.  My only fault is when the supports are in, my 11 daughter said they rub and so I had to put tape on the sides of her ankles and on her Achilles to prevent rubbing and blister formation


Hi Melissa
I saw your review and appreciate your feedback!
Our Ankle Braces are almost identical to the "ASO Ankle Braces with Plastic Stays" model
This was their next generation model which added the Plastic stays from the previous version to give additional support to the ankle laterally.
In saying that we do  know from personal experience with our 2 girls whose Ankle joints do protrude a bit they can rub. To resolve this you simply remove they stays that it why there is the removable option.
Ankle Braces will still give your daughter the support she needs as the key function of the Brace is the lace up boot locks the heel into place and the figure 8 cross over straps replicate Strapping Tape.
Please let me know if you have any further questions

Kind Regards
Anna

I am now converted!
Hi
Just wanting to pass on; for 25 years I have been strapping my ankles with tape to play - soccer, all forms of rugby, and now touch for the last 10 years.
Due to  rolled ankles whilst playing sport at school, it has become a necessity for me to tape them, otherwise I risk further injury.
I am now converted to using your ankle guards. !
Using them last night, with no adverse effects to my running. Easily fitting inside the boot.
To me the up front cost  was always prohibitive , with i thought only one major brand out there.
I am glad I  found your product and company online. The guards look well made, they are great value for the pair. I am still wearing the knee guard today , to assist recovery
Great service, and delivery.
Many thanks
Geoffrey
