The Form Fit® Foam Stirrup Ankle Brace combines a flexible outer shelf with soft foam padding for exceptional comfort and support. A pivoting heel strap permits maximum plantar and dorsal range of motion. Also incorporated are patented Flex-Edges, as well as a simple strapping and adjustment system for easy application. The Form Fit range from Össur has been developed with over 40 years of knowledge from the prosthetics and orthotics industry, designed to enhance mobility whiilst still offering comfort and low profile designs so that they can be worn under your normal clothing / with your normal footwear. Once you have sustained an ankle injury it is important to stop what you are doing and rest in order to minimise the risk of causing further damage and a lengthier spell on the sidelines. Diagnosis is also essential in being able to determine the severity of the ankle injury so that a treatment programme can be created to deal with your individual needs. This will also dictate the type of brace you require. Following ankle surgery or ligament damage you need to stabilise the joint and minimise eversion and inversion movements which can cause unnecessary strain on the ligaments. A stirrup is rigid by design and therefore can protect the joint from any ambiguous sideways movements of the ankle whilst still allowing you to remain mobile.
