The new Active Ankle 329: High compression, low profile

August 6, 2014

The new Active Ankle 329 Support Brace is the ideal solution for athletes looking for moderate, low-profile support with minimal presence in their shoes.

The 329 is latex-free, made of nylon and spandex. It has a high compression liner that provides substantial, comfortable compression to both the lateral and deltoid ligaments. Four-inch-wide medial and lateral straps help anchor the heel lock strap, assisting in stabilizing the tibia to the subtalar joint. The straps also create solid support that provides additional resistance and protection.

Cramer gave Trent Stratton, ATC, Director of Sports Medicine at Kent State University, an opportunity to test drive the AA 329 with some of his athletes. He said the support brace worked out so well that he purchased additional braces for the basketball team and some of his football players.

“Our basketball players really like a light tape job, or something not bulky on their ankles,” Trent says. “The Active Ankle 329 brace works well as a preventive measure instead of taping.”

Trent says the brace would also work well for soccer. “It’s easy to put on,” he notes, “and the athletes have been compliant about wearing it, so that’s a sign of success.”

The 329 support brace is right/left universal, available in black or white, and comes in sizes small, medium, large, and extra large.
