Ankle strain and sprain are common injuries. It can cause giving up sport activities and can require the surgery treatment.
Ankle strain and sprain are common injuries that can interfere with everything from sports activities to activities of daily living. They can require the surgical treatment. The incidence of ankle sprains in Poland is 360 000/ year. Ankle sprain is the most commonly diagnosed condition by orthopedic surgeons. Ankle sprains are due to twisting and stretching of ligaments beyond their anatomical range that results in soft tissue injury and damage to the joint capsule. Approximately 95% are caused by excessive ankle inversion and only 5% with ankle eversion. Twisted ankles don’t always require a visit to the orthopaedist. It depends on ankle the degree of sprain. First degree sprains can be treated by rest, cold therapy (ice), compression, elevation and stabilization with an ace bandage or support. Second degree sprains require an orthopaedist’s treatment and commonly a prescription for a professional ankle brace. You should understand that professional medical ankle braces are more efficient than a simple cast.
Reh4Mat has the Ankle brace to fit the medical requirement!
AM-OSS-05/CCA brace by Reh4Mat is one of the most advanced braces we offer. It is made of an innovative fabric called ActivExpanse.
ActivSpace is a spacer, polyamide 3D lamination with high skin ventilation. It is very lightweight, consisted of 2 layers. Between them, we use polyamide braids with 4 mm width. ActivSpace is not elastic what improves stabilization. Inside the lamination, between 2 layers, the air flows freely, maintaining minimal water and moisture absorption. Waterproof material.
The outside of the device is made of spatial fabric AirDistance III which support lateral stabilizers. The openwork construction allows the skin to breath and improves the comfort of use.
AirDistance III is breathable durable lamination. Consists of 3 layers: external self-gripping polyamide, comfort foam inside and internal polyamide 3D fabric. This spacer fabric 3D provides high air permeability and minimal water and moisture absorption. Waterproof material.
The laced system utilizing CCA, helps you fit your brace to every ankle shape. This fabric is non-elastic what improves stabilization and our skin is covered with airy terry cotton. The outside of the device is made of spatial fabric which support lateral stabilizers. The openwork construction allows the skin to breath and improves the comfort of use. Two lateral anatomic-shaped splints stabilize the joint effectively. The low profile design allows our ankle brace to be used in all athletic shoes. Our ankle brace’s advantage is universal side – it is suitable for right and left leg. The AM-OSS-05/CCA ankle brace with lateral support, laced construction and spiral dynamic straps provide excellent ankle stabilization.
Ankle brace AM-OSS-05/CCA allows to maintain the foot in inversion or eversion. Depending on natural foot position, we can correct and maintain the foot in the required position. This solution is possible by adjustment of tension of two elastic straps.
To correct the inversion there is necessary to re-adjust the medial strap to achieve the desired tension. To maintain the foot in the eversion, there is necessary to re-adjist the lateral strap. When you adjust the straps in standard tension, you will maintain the foot in the neutral position.
Purpose of use
- ankle strains or sprains
- ankle dislocation
- as an protection after cast immobilization (after fractures, raptures, sprains, strains)
- chronic Ankle Instability
- acute or Chronic Ankle Injury
- prophylactically in sport
CCA Compression System
Dial CCA Compression System was designed to use it in the snowboard shoes , because ordinary shoelace was too weak in extreme using. Typical shoestring sprang and snowboard shoes wasn’t casing construction what could allow using the steel fastening. Steel wire and polyamide grommets allow to use steel fastening. Later, this system was used in other sport shoes such as: professional shoes for cycling or running. In orthopaedic field the compression system was adapted early and it’s used in e.g. ankle, wrist or back braces. The system is characterized by firm fastening that is non-elastic, easy and secure. There is impossible to loose (only in case of damage) it what guarantees the best stabilization. Our CCA System provides different levels of compression. It’s based on differential polyamide grommets , steel wires covered by plastic and knobs. The additional equipment is the special element that is easy to attach what allows to modify device’s shape or circumference. The CCA System is the compression solution so you can use it only after putting the brace on the body.
ATTENTION: Our CCA System is very effective with big interaction strength so it’s necessary to use it with caution.
