Description

The XLS is an ankle brace designed for an ankle that is giving way, rolling over, or has experienced multiple sprains.

Chronic Ankle Instability (CAI) is defined as the recurring "giving way" of the outside (lateral side) of the ankle.  It often develops after repeated ankle sprains.  People with CAI often complain of repeated turning or rolling of their ankles especially on uneven surfaces.  Persistent discomfort, swelling, pain and tenderness of the ankle are also common.  These repeated injuries perpetuate chronic ankle instability.  47% of ankle sprains occur in ankles that have been previously sprained.

XLS stands for External Ligament Support.  The XLS ankle brace is a two-piece design.  A flexible footplate is anchored beneath the insole of your sneaker.  A lace-up ankle design gets applied to your foot.  Put your foot in your sneaker and connect the two pieces with external straps.  This combination provides unprecendented ankle security.

 

Here's how it works:

1.  The flexible footplate fits under the insole of the shoe and becomes the base of support.

2.  Put the lace-up brace on the foot, over a sock.

3.  Put the foot into the shoe.

4.  Tighten the 1st strap with your heel on the floor, toes lifted, and ankle rolled inward (dorsiflexed and everted)

5.  Pull the second strap around the front of the brace and secure it.
