Mueller HG80 Ankle Brace
An elite standard functional ankle brace that provides extra support to weakened and injured ankles affording improved stability and helping to prevent re-sprain. Dynamic figure eight straps provide further support along the line of the ligaments in a similar fashion to that employed during protective ankle taping and bias can be added via the stirrup straps.
Who Should Use This?
The Mueller HG80 ankle support can be used from adolescence into middle age to support the ankle joint and its ligaments. A very good sports or heavy use brace suitable for most sports including contact sport (rules allowing ).
This is a functional brace designed to use as the injured athlete returns to weight bearing rehabilitation and running or training drills. It provides anatomical support following injury to the ankle's lateral ligaments (outside of the ankle), medial (or deltoid ligament - inside of the ankle) and capsular ligaments (around the ankle).
How Does it Work?
Chartered physiotherapists routinely tape injured ankles to protect them running supportive bands of tape along and over the line of the injured ligaments to shorten and protect them. This clever brace uses the same principals via its dynamic figure 8 and stirrup straps.
Sizing and Technical Information:
Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this is the best functional ankle brace of its type on the market. No brace is as good as tape applied immediately before activity by a trained therapist but this brace is the next best thing with the advantage of repeatable , quick and easy self application. This brace is not suitable for acutely swollen and injured ankles for which we advise the Pneumatic Ankle Splint.
