Ankle instability affects a wide range of people. From those who've had repeated injuries that have left the joint chronically weak to people who've lost control and strength due to stroke or other nerve issues, restoring stability of the joint is as much about accessibility and quality of life as it is walking regularly.
Bauerfeind have a range of ankle instability braces for any level of instability, be it a mild twinge and shake now and then or a complete lack of control. With the best that medical supports have to offer, there's an ankle instability brace for you.
Is taping better than wearing these?
While taping is the strongest type of support you can get when you're playing sport, it has plenty of its own drawbacks, including repeated need for application, residue and pain when removing it, expertise needed to properly apply as well as the fact that a lot of movement causes it to shift over time. Wearing an ankle instability support is as easy as putting on a shoe, and can fit in with any lifestyle for all day wear. You can even put them on over a taped ankle for maximum support.
Can I still play sports in these?
Virtually all of our supports are designed for active use, whether it's on the sports field, in the gym, or just for a run around the block.�
