ACUTE ATHLETIC EXTERNAL ANKLE BRACE

The ONLY In-Game Solution for Ankle Injuries

The Acute Athletic TayCo External Ankle Brace (Athletic TayCo XAB) restricts eversion and inversion of the ankle with free motion plantarflexion and dorsiflexion. It fits over the athlete’s cleats allowing for in-game application and returning them to the field immediately with added stability and protection. It can also be worn as a preventative measure to reduce the risk of ankle injury.

Fits Over The Cleat

Faster Return to Game Action

Ankle injuries are among the most common forms of sports injuries. Previously in-game ankle injuries were treated by re-taping the ankle and applying an in-the-shoe ankle brace and then taping over the shoe. All of which took time and severely compromised the fit and integrity of the shoe and subsequently hindered ankle function. 

The TayCo Brace is applied over the cleat, supporting inversion/eversion, while allowing for dorsiflexion/planterflexion. This allows the player to return to play faster and be more effective during play.

Features and Benefits

FITS OVER THE CLEAT

The TayCo Brace fits over the athlete's own cleate and works in conjunction with an orthotic. Cramming an aircast and tape inside the cleat, often required a larger size causing even more stress on the compromised ligaments. 

MINIMIZES DECONDITIONING

TayCo Brace believes that Movement Is Medicine. The sooner athletes are back on their feet and training the better. The lightweight and low profile construction allow athletes to get back to training faster, leading to reduced deconditioning and faster return to competition.

ANKLE MOTION WITH SUPPORT

Previous treatment protocols completely immobilized the ankle. The TayCo Brace supports inversion & eversion, while allowing for dorsiflexion & planterflexion. This allows the player to return to play faster and be more effective during play.

FASTER RETURN TO PLAY

After a thorough medical evaluation, the Tayco External Ankle Brace can be applied to the player in seconds. The TayCo is placed over the cleat and secured either with the velcro straps or by tape. This quick application and ability for protected ankle motion can get a player back in the game safer and with less game time loss.  

 

LIGHTWEIGHT

The brace weighs less than 14 oz, yet can stand up to the punishment a 400 lb lineman can exert.
