The AFTR is designed to stabilise the hindfoot and ankle to speed the recovery process. Additional swelling control is provided by gel pads behind each of the ankle bones. An additional stirrup strap comes with the brace for joint stabilisation during the recovery process.
The AFTR Pull-On 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 with Gel is an excellent choice for treatment immediately after an ankle sprain. The medical-grade compression and gel pads around the ankle will reduce edema and pain to facilitate a quicker return to activity. The stirrup straps provide stability to protect the ankle during the early return to mobility. Inside the AFTR brace is two j-shaped gel pads, which fit behind the ankle bones to help remove excess swelling and relieve pain.
