The Push Sports Ankle Brace 8 offers support in the event of slight or virtually restored ankle sprains. The elastic strap forms a figure of eight around the injured ankle, stabilising it and providing pleasant and firm compression. This provides the user with a reassuring feeling when exercising. The special anti-slip sections made of TPU run at an angle across the forefoot and around the heel and enhance the elastic strength of the brace. The TPU sections on both sides of the ankle (stirrup), provide a proprioceptive sensation. The ankle brace is made of very slim and moisture wicking material that dries quickly. The Push Sports Ankle Brace 8 can also be used without shoes.

Please note: Materials have not been tested against salt or chlorine water, they may wear out quicker than braces not in contact with salt or chlorine water.
The Push Sports Ankle Brace 8 is available for both left and right ankle.
Applying the Brace
1. Put on the brace. The heel section of the brace needs to fit snugly around the heel.
2. Pull your foot towards you, such that the foot is positioned at a 90 degree angle. Then tighten and fasten the top portion of the brace.
3. Take the broad elastic strap and wrap it around the back of the lower leg to the front, diagonally across the instep; then pass it underneath the foot and along the outside of the foot towards the inside of the ankle. You effectively create a figure ‘8’. Fasten the strap with the hook and loop material.
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.
