The AFTR DC Ankle brace is designed for optimal support and swelling control, to treat many foot and ankle injuries and after surgery.
The AFTR DC is designed to stabilise the hindfoot and ankle to speed the recovery process. The unique wraparound design with adjustable flaps lets you fit the brace perfectly to your ankle as swelling is reduced in the foot. The front closure also allows for a pain-free and easy application process, especially when compared to a stiff lace-up brace design. Additional swelling control is provided by removable gel pads behind each of the ankle bones. The medical-grade compression and gel pads around the ankle will reduce edema and pain to facilitate a quicker return to activity. The gel pads can also be placed in the freezer for cold therapy. An additional stirrup strap comes with the brace for joint stabilization during the recovery process.
The AFTR DC provides support and compression for pain relief and stabilisation for post-op and non-operative treatment of many foot and ankle pathologies with the added benefit of its dorsal closure design for easy application. The brace includes medial and lateral plastic stays as well as figure-8 stirrup straps to limit movement in the ankle and hindfoot. Made from the BioSkin material, it contours to the foot’s anatomy during normal volume changes following injuries and surgery. The sleeve and stirrup strap control hindfoot and limit inversion and eversion helping recovery from surgery, sprains, or ankle osteoarthritis pain.
The materials are noticeably comfortable with the added benefit of being hypoallergenic, breathable, and thin that can be trimmed for a customised fit and is slim enough to fit into most shoes.
The AFTR DC brace is available with a figure 8 compression wrap. The Figure 8 compression wrap is elastic and provides a level of desired compression and stability to reduce swelling and speed up recovery time.
