Rigid Testimonials

I consider Active Ankle braces to be second to none when is comes to performance and injury prevention. My teams and I have been using Active Ankle braces for the past 11 years. Thank you Active Ankle for keeping our players on the court.

I felt an instant sense of support in the ankle area vs. a general “constricting” feeling from the previous brace, and noticed more flexibility in my walking/movement. Thank you so much for suggesting the T2, I was surprised at how much better it felt after continued use.

— Cheryl T
 

All my players wear the Active Ankle T2. The protection Active Ankle provides has been a great asset in keeping my players injury free on the court.

— Scott Dowis

I have had the opportunity to use your Active Ankle Brace for a variety of foot/ankle injuries treated both operatively and conservatively where controlled stabilization of pronation/supination was required during rehabilitation. It has been extremely well received by my patients affording the comfort, protection and confidence they need to speed return to activity and function. The Active Ankle Brace is particularly well suited for returning athletes to high demand sports, and I have had varsity lacrosse players report excellent results with minimal interference in their mobility while wearing the brace. Thanks for a great product.

The Active Ankle braces give me piece of mind because they allow my daughter to play aggressively without thinking about risk of serious injury.

As a parent, knowing that my daughter is on the court playing with confidence is reassuring. She has communicated with me her confidence in playing at the net without fear of twisting her ankle.

Our teams at the University of St. Francis and Washington University have worn the T1 and T2 exclusively, and we couldn't be happier with the product. Active Ankles are superlative braces and are essential for preventing ankle injuries.

During the past 15 years of wearing Active Ankle braces, we have not had a single player miss a game or practice due to an ankle sprain! On occasion we have had some "near sprains" but the brace has prevented a much more serious injury time and time again, which over the years has translated into more wins for our program. Being innovative in brace technology year-in and year-out makes Active Ankle second to none in the industry! The Active Ankle staff has provided our program with reliable service each season that almost makes you feel as though they are right there in your training room working with your players too.

Active Ankle braces prevent injuries to our athletes while making them feel secure that they can go hard in training. I think Active Ankle braces are a necessary part of a volleyball player’s uniform.

Thanks for sending the samples of your Active Ankle product line. The Active Ankle T2 that has the hinge we found to be very supportive and did not inhibit the running motion. It has received positive feedback and is currently being used by one of our running club members.

Thank you, they worked! I owe it to you guys to send you this quick email. I love playing b-ball, but after many ankle sprains and surgery on my left ankle, I had to give it up. There is nothing more painful than an ankle sprain. Well I found out about Active Ankle through a buddy at work who swore by his and decided to get some and have been wearing them for the past month. Tonight, I was playing and ended up landing on this dude's foot and went down with all my 200+ pounds on my left ankle. The braces held, my foot is just mildly sore and if I had had my other braces on, I'd be out for weeks. It probably sounds silly but I am so happy with these braces, and even more happy that I won't be limping tomorrow. Thanks, great product and worth every cent!

Active ankles just SAVED our starting leftside from being out of commission for a couple of weeks, as she landed right on our middle blockers foot. But rather she was a little tender for the day and able to practice right away. Had we not had your product on she would have been out for a LONG time!

In 1998 I ruptured multiple ligaments in my ankle while playing high school volleyball. The next year my doctor suggested I get a brace of some kind and I happened across the T2 active ankle. Today, as I looked over the very same brace I realized the thousands of hours this thing has gone through, the number of falls that never happened because of it and I am truly shocked, amazed, and thankful for such an outstanding product. Nothing ever holds up for 14 years...going on 15. In celebration I will be getting a new one to support your company but will keep my first. Perhaps bronzed? :) 
Thank you again for such a great product!

About 8 years ago while playing high school basketball I injured my left ankle very badly. My ankle didn't break but the doctor said the internal damage was irreversible and even with extensive therapy I would never fully recover. For the first time in my life what the doctor had told me was 100% correct. I went through seven months of therapy and peaked at 70% strength. I wore regular ankle braces on that ankle from then on out. About 1 year after that, I injured my right ankle almost identically playing tennis. I knew what I was in for and immediately began therapy again. But when I returned to the courts my coach was waiting on me with two contraptions I hadn't seen before. He told me if I wanted to continue playing sports for him or for myself in general, that I would have to wear these. It's been about 6 1/2 years now and I won't even go for a long walk without these on. I refer to them as my "Magic Shoes" in reference to Forest Gump. You guys are my savior and keep me doing what I absolutely love to do.

I am not an athlete. I work in construction and run a renovation company. Last week I severely twisted my ankle...I heard the pop when I fell. I tried the usual tensors and supports and found at the end of the day the bruising and swelling was excessive. I purchased one of your items and upon putting it on, I immediately noticed a difference in the pain management department. Don't misunderstand me, I fully understand that when you get injured you have to allow time for the body to heal. But when you have to produce...you have to produce. Your product makes my ankle feel like I can manage the day and feed my family. Thank you.

Lace-Up Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank you again for sending me an Excel brace to try out with my athletes. I have been using it on my softball pitcher and she loves it. She has wore an ASO in the past and reports this brace is more comfortable to wear. I am seeing great wear out of the product, the dust and dirt haven't seemed to affect it in the least. A great quality bracethat is standing up well.

The Excel worked well for myself, I have been using it as a support for my sprained ankle as I continue my running. For our shop, the Excel would do well for most runners in need of a lighter support system. I believe we will use the Excel for future orders.

I met you during the volleyball tournament in Louisville, Kentucky. My daughter also plays catcher on her softball teams. The problem she was having were the shin guards did not fit comfortably over her active ankles with the hard plastic sides. You gave us one of the Lace-Up short ones with the velcro straps that wrap around like you would do when taping an ankle. This has worked out very well. My daughter likes it and is more comfortable knowing she has some support on the ankle. Her coaches like it as well and noted it does not look like she is going to roll her ankle as she runs the bases. Thank you again for talking to us and providing the brace to use. I would highly recommend to other catchers with ankle problems.

I have a large DWO brace. I love how light-weight it is and the fact that it sits on the dorsal side my arm/wrist.

— Matt Cross
 

I bought a Dorsal Night Splint last year and was very surprised that I had no pain when first getting out of bed in the morning. Every night I sleep with the DNS on my foot because I have very flat feet and Achilles Tendonitis. My doctor wants to repair the damage with surgery but I told him that I did not want surgery because of my age (87 years old). Thank God I have the DNS, no pain for one year!

— Theresa, NJ
 

The TFS cover is amazing! This is the best product and easiest solution for trigger finger. Thank you!!!!!
