The ASO ankle brace is a patented ankle support that can be worn either preventively or during the treatment of an acute ankle sprain. The ″figure 8″ straps and elastic cuff supports simulate ankle taping by holding the ankle in a biomedically neutral position, reducing either inversion or eversion type injuries or re-injuries. Will fit in any type of shoe. Lace up closure and easy to apply. Fits right or left ankle. Made in the USA.
