The ASO ankle brace is a patented ankle support that can be worn either preventatively or during the treatment of an accute ankle sprain. The patented "figure 8" straps and elastic cuff supports of the ASO ankle brace, hold the ankle in a biomechanically neutral position, reducing either inversion or eversion type injuries or re-injuries. Made for either the left or the right ankle, the ASO ankle brace delivers superior patient results.
Each ASO Ankle Brace is sold separately.
A common problem - fitting a typically bulky ankle brace into a shoe. Too often, it requires moving up a full shoe size.
Not so with the ASO.
The medical Specialties ASO (Ankle Stabilizing Orthosis) fits easily into an athletic or street shoe. The ASO is made of thin, durable ballistic nylon - the same protective material used by law enforcement and military personnel.
Superior support is achieved through exclusive non-stretch nylon stabilizing straps that mirror the stirrup technique of an athletic taping application. The calcaneus is captured, effectively locking the heel.
The ASO is specifically indicated for:
- Treatment of injured ankles
- Prevention of re-injury
- Prevention of ankle injury
The ASO is less bulky than competitive ankle braces. Fits comfortably inside the wearer's normal running or street shoe.
Sizing - Measure circumference from the base of the heel around the malleoli, over an athletic sock.
