Ankle varus protective protective gear.
At present, the main measures for ankle sprain protection are sticking and wearing an ankle brace, both of which have better protection effects, but in comparison, the protection effect of ankle braces is higher. After analysis and analysis, it is considered that for athletes with a history of ankle sprain, in order to prevent an ankle sprain, 26 athletes need to be bandaged. Under the same circumstances, 18 athletes need to wear an ankle brace. For 33% of bandages, the use of ankle braces can reduce ankle sprains by 69%, and for cases with a history of sprains, it can reduce sprains by 71%. Therefore, ankle protectors are considered to be the best and most cost-effective form of protection for ankle sprains.
Ankle protectors can be divided into two categories according to rigidity:
Elastic protective gear is divided into bandage type and half-stocking type, and strap type has a certain degree of elasticity, and it needs to be wrapped around the foot and ankle in a certain way when used; half-stocking type is directly worn.
Rigid or semi-rigid ankle braces, usually with molded guards or air pads on both sides of the ankle, have significant support and stabilization effects on the ankle.
The design of the protective ankle brace is complementary to the physiological structure of the ankle joint. Through the analysis of the anatomy of the ankle joint, the physiological weakness of the ankle joint is found, and the rigidity of the ankle brace structure is increased to strengthen the protection of the weak point. It is divided into shape design and structure design. The shape design is the basis to ensure the maximum performance of the material performance, and also the basis to ensure the comfort of the ankle brace. It also plays a vital role in the protection of the ankle brace. Structural design is a direct influencing factor of the protective performance of ankle braces, mainly referring to the characteristics of the anatomy of the ankle joint. The shape design and structure design are indispensable for the ankle protection performance.
