The Push Aequi is an effective ankle brace, which strikes a balance between efficient mechanical support of an unstable ankle and good wearer comfort. The rigid support is situated exclusively on the medial (inner) side of the ankle and has a cavity for the malleolus. The lateral side is made from comfortable foam, which easily adapts to the individual anatomy. The bracing material is constructed in such a way that it is very rigid in the centre, becoming softer towards the edges to ensure a good fit and wearer comfort. The brace is fastened by means of a diagonal strap. The elastic straps apply pressure around the ankle. The Push Aequi can be used in the functional treatment of ankle injuries and as a long term support in cases of chronic ankle instability. The inversion/eversion movement (inward / outward movement of the foot) is restricted while plantar/dorsal flexion (bending and stretching) is allowed, for adequate freedom. This means that no inhibition is felt during normal walking and running. The numbers on the straps make fitting the brace simplicity itself. The Push Aequi is worn over the sock, and optimal stabilisation can only be achieved if it is worn with a closed (lace-up) shoe.
