What is the best ankle brace on the market? 

At Vivomed, we regularly get asked what we think is the best ankle brace or the ankle brace we supply that provides the most support, well it looks like those questions have now been answered.

The Push Aequi Ankle Brace

Twenty years after the first comparative tests, from a biomechanical point of view, the Push Aequi ankle brace is proving to be still the best orthotic design (in its kind) among current ankle orthosis.

The testing institute has designed a new testing device that is able to test the resistance of orthotic devices to inversion movement. A sophisticated artificial foot model with integrated sensors, and four different axes of motion, measures the forces that are exerted on the ankle in a life-like situation.

The Push Aequi continues to prove itself as the most reliable ankle brace, which, thanks to its minimal design and innovative stabilization system, has an excellent patient compliance, as experience shows.

You can watch the movie of the testing procedure here: https://www.push.eu/aequi-study-vivomed

The Push Aequi is tested against the major current alternatives in the test, a digital version of the study can also be found at https://www.push.eu/aequi-study-vivomed

The Push Aequi Ankle Brace

The Push Aequi is designed to be worn over the sock, and optimal stabilisation can only be achieved if it is worn with a closed (laced-up) shoe making it ideal for supporting ankles during sports where a shoe or boot is worn.

INDICATIONS

  • Serious (residual) instability of the ankle (under high stress)
  • Treatment of acute lateral ankle ligament lesions
  • Follow-up treatment of conservative or operated ankle fractures
  • Arthrosis with instability without accumulation of fluid
  • Secondary prevention of ankle ligament lesions (under high stress without accumulation of fluid)
  • Very severe ankle sprains and strains

My son uses this as he has suffered a stroke and has foot drop. This brace is a wonderful product. It keeps it’s shape and the assistance it provides for the foot for a very long time. It looks sleek and sporty so a lot of people have thought my son had a sports injury. This makes him happy as he doesn’t want to be seen as someone with a disability. The service provided is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for the team.

I have used one of these braces for the past seven years. It has held up really well and allowed me to run approximately 1000K a year. It feels comfortable.
I recently bought a replacement as it was beginning to look worn. The replacement looks to be of the same excellent quality.

My husband uses this brace to support his affected ankle following a stroke. It helps to prevent his ankle from turning as he walks and provides good stability. The company’s rapid turnround of our order, and previous ones, was excellent. Only complaint is that, despite this being for a certifiable medical condition, we cannot claim back the VAT (as we can with similar products) or the “Tax” mentioned, which makes it more expensive than it needs to be.
