Aircast A60 Ankle Brace

Tennis star Andy Murray has been seen wearing this lightweight supportive Aircast A60 Ankle Brace. The original Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace will give you more support but it is bulkier and doesn’t fit as easily into regular shoes and trainers – you might need a larger size shoe than you normally wear. However the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace is altogether a much slimmer and lighter brace and doesn’t take as much room so it should fit easily into your comfort shoes and trainers.

The A60 has stabiliser splints on each side of the brace to prevent the ankle from rolling over. Combined with proper orthotics this brace gives good support and protection.

Consider using an ankle brace when you are recovering from an ankle injury or you have chronic ankle weakness and want to play sport. Remember that during recovery from an ankle injury your ankle is more prone to rolling over or inversion injuries, and you don’t want to stress or twist the ankle during the healing process so you need to restrict movement. You don’t want to stop ankle movement completely but some movement ranges need to be controlled.

It is easy to put on the A60 brace on. Slip your foot into the brace, do up the first Velcro strap on the top of the foot, then wrap the strap around the ankle, pull it tight, thread through the loop and secure in place. Simple.

Useful for conditions such as tarsal tunnel syndrome, chronic ankle weakness, plantar fasciitis and heel pain, and for the rehabilitation and recovery from a sprained ankle or a broken ankle.

When you are out and about during the day wear the brace, but don’t wear it all the time. Remember the aim is to get your ankle better so that you no longer need a support.
