The ASO Ankle Brace fits easily into your athletic, running or walking shoe. The ASO (Ankle Stabilizing Orthosis) is made of a thin, durable ballistic nylon - the same material used by law enforcement and military personnel.
With the ASO, excellent support is achieved through unique non-stretch nylon stabilizing straps that reproduce the double stirrup technique of an athletic taping technique. The calcaneus is effectively secured with both a medial and lateral heel lock. This brace has been designed for proper fit and superior support. It has been specifically developed for treatment of injured ankles and prevention of re-injury.
Developed under the support of C. Steven Yates, Head Athletic Trainer at Wake Forest University, the ASO ankle brace offers many advantages when compared to both competitive ankle braces and traditional athletic taping techniques. A great advantage with the ASO is that it has non-stretch straps that can be retightened anytime without even removing the shoe.
Compared to daily athletic taping, the ASO, during the course of a season, can result in considerable financial savings.
