An ankle support is a device that is worn on the lower leg to provide structural support, typically with an elastic lace closure. It typically takes the form of a firm, light-weight pad wrapped around the shin or calf below the knee.
Ankle Support Benefits
People with ankle injuries can benefit from wearing an ankle sleeve to stabilize their ankle and protect it. Ankle sleeves help people with injuries by providing stability for the ankle, limiting motion in the joint, and reducing pain.
They're effective for older adults who are at risk of falls, too.
