Not all Braces are the same….November 12, 2013
Ankle braces are designed to primarily stop inversion of the ankle.
A recent study at the AIS on the Australian indoor volleyball team revealed that the “Active” Ankle Brace, is the only brace on the market that doesn’t reduce ankle dorsiflexion.
All other ankle braces were shown to increase knee flexion when jumping. This can load up the patellar tendon.
So not all ankle braces are the same. Go the “Active” Ankle Brace and keep moving :-)
