A ankle brace and / or ankle bandage is very suitable for support and protection of the ankle joint.
In situations where the ankle ligaments have to be protected eg after an ankle sprain (inversion trauma) an ankle bandage is able to inhibit the movements through which the bands are stretched. This will allow the ankle ligaments to recover better.
An Ankle Brace is also worn a lot as a preventive measure. Especially in game sports (football, hockey, volleyball, tennis and basketball).
In the case of ankle braces, a subdivision can be made, for example, protection.
The Light Ankle Brace consists mainly of a sturdy stocking.
The Medium Ankle Brace consists of a sturdy stocking with extra straps.
The Heavy Ankle Bandage consists of a stocking with extra reinforcement elements (such as thermoplastic material) and additional straps.
The choice will be made depending on the degree of injury, support and any sporting activity.
