ANKLE
The ankle joint consists of the tibiofibular, talocrural and subtalar joints. The tibiofibular joint is connected by the anterior tibiofibular, posterior tibiofibular, inferior transverse ligament and interosseous membrane. The talocrural joint located between the talus, the medial malleolus of the distal tibia, and lateral malleolus of the distal fibula. The subtalar joint is an articulation between the talus and calcaneus. The medial ligament complex consisting of the tibionavicular, tibiocalcanean, posterior tibiotalar and anterior tibiotalar ligaments is very strong. The lateral side has several separated ligaments, including the anterior talofibular, calcaneofibular, posterior talofibular ligament. The key muscles surrounding the ankle are peroneal muscles (longus and brevis), triceps surae, and anterior / posterior tibialis.

ANKLE SUPPORTS
 


  • Rocker bottom provides more stability during rehabilitation.
  • Liner provides superior fit and comfort in boot.
  • Cross-strapping for better fit and foot stabilization.
  • Extra pads help ensure comfort, stability and firm support for injured ankle.

  • For first time application, loosen straps and remove liner from boot.
  • Place foot in liner and secure with contact closure. Make sure the heel fits snugly into the posterior portion of the liner. Fasten the foot flaps on the liner first, making sure they are snug. Wrap and fasten the leg portion of the liner, again making sure that it is snug from bottom to top. Some trimming of the liner may be necessary to accomplish an optimum fit.

  • Secure boot straps, starting at the toes and working up the leg.
