An Ankle Sporting Brace, is a pull-on strap style brace, which is worn around the ankle to promote immobilisation, while allowing it to heal from sprains and other minor injuries.
Ankle Braces should be worn from anywhere from 10 days to six weeks, which is dependent on the severity of your injury. You should continue to wear the Ankle Brace for as long as swelling, pain or instability in the ankle is experienced.
Studies show that an Ankle Brace used by athletes lowers the incidence of acute Ankle Injuries, however an Ankle Brace will not heal an injury in the Ankle, should the injury be severe. Sporting Ankle Braces are designed to fit comfortably in a persons’ shoes to provide extra support during sports or general activities throughout the day.
After an operation or in the event of slight sprains or repeated overloading, the ligaments of the foot are often weakened and require increased stabilisation, which is provided by our range of BioSport ankle wear. The active support with individually adjustable strap systems gives your ankle reliable support even whilst in motion and protects against the lateral twisting of the foot.
What makes a good Ankle Sporting Brace?
As there are several types of Ankle Braces available on the market, you must determine which Ankle Brace is right for you, and the BioSport Ankle Brace provides the following key benefits:
- Increased stability of the ankle on the move
- Breathable material for high wearing comfort

Can an Ankle Brace Weaken the Ankle?
Ankle braces function by locking down the joint, and for people who suffer from weak ankles from an injury, then a Sporting Ankle Brace is very effective in limiting motion during rehabilitation.
However, an Ankle Brace should not be worn every day for injury prevention, as you will be more likely to weaken your ankle from the consistent use. As recommended, a Sporting Ankle Brace should only be worn during the designated rehabilitation period.
