The Push Aequi Flex is very distinctive in its added flexibility and comprehensive compression of the affected area. The brace has an enlarged flexible shell covering the ankle ensuring evenly distributed compression. The Aequi Flex is very effective in cases of treatment of acute ankle injuries. The rigid support is situated exclusively on the medial side of the ankle and has a recess for the malleolus (ankle bone).
The functional strap can easily be brought into position following the level of swelling in the (sub) acute phase. Additional compression to the joint can be provided by adjusting two elastic straps individually. As a result, the inversion – and eversion movement is properly restricted, while an adequate freedom of plantar/dorsal flexion is allowed. This means that during walking, normal movement patterns of the foot are not inhibited. The use of flexible materials guarantees optimal fit and comfort for the user.
Correct use of your brace requires a detailed diagnosis of the cause of your pain complaints or instability. Always consult your GP, a physiotherapist or a specialist before applying the brace.

How do I choose a brace?
If a brace has been prescribed or recommended, it is wise to go to a professional establishment that specialises in medical aids or rehabilitation articles. Some physiotherapists sell braces and they can also give you good advice. Choosing the right size and type of brace requires additional know-how. Always consult an expert for this kind of specialised work.
