The ankle is one of the most frequently injured body parts because it supports the entire body weight as you engage in various physical activities that involve forward motion and lateral movement. Movements that involve walking, running, turning, and pivoting can all lead to ankle injuries. In other words, because the ankle plays a very important part in almost all aspects of movement, protecting it from injury during strenuous activities is of the essence.
Here at BraceAbility, we offer a variety of neoprene ankle braces and neoprene ankle supports depending on what you require.
Neoprene Ankle Braces and Neoprene Ankle Supports
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is characterized by its superior resistance and possesses a variety of properties that make it quite useful: it is abrasion-resistant, chemical-resistant, waterproof, stretchable, and buoyant. First developed in 1930, neoprene has since been incorporated in everyday products. It is most commonly used, however, in the production of wetsuits and orthotic/athletic support braces. In fact, neoprene ankle braces are some of the most effective orthotic braces in the market today.
Because neoprene is known as an insulator, a neoprene brace is effective not only in relieving pain in the afflicted area but also for retaining heat to help aid in compression and improved blood circulation (the compression and warmth that neoprene ankle supports provide increases circulation that helps speed up the recovery of injured ligaments in the ankle). Neoprene braces are also water-resistant; thus they are ideal for use during sports or other athletic or sweat-inducing activities. Another advantage of a neoprene foot support is the flexibility and support that it can provide, without being too constricting. Some neoprene ankle braces even have hinges that offer extra stability and protection.
Latex Free Neoprene Ankle Wraps and Neoprene Ankle Braces
A word of advice: those who are shopping for neoprene wraps should make sure to get latex-free neoprene braces to avoid contact hives or latex allergy. Latex allergy, in particular—which is defined as hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to natural rubber latex—can be a potentially life-threatening condition, not unlike the severe reaction (anaphylactic shock) some people have to bee
stings. Neoprene does not, naturally, contain latex, but many products that are advertised as neoprene such as braces, gloves, and other items worn on the body actually have a latex base that is covered by a thin layer of neoprene. These products, more often than not, can sometimes affect people who are allergic to latex.
BraceAbility offers only premium-grade, 100 percent latex-free neoprene ankle supports or neoprene alternatives so you are assured of the highest quality and safety of our neoprene braces.
