The Push ortho Ankle Brace Aequi Junior (in short: Aequi Junior) offers a good balance between effective mechanical support and wearing comfort in case of a (sub)acute or chronic ankle injury in children aged 6 to 12 years (shoe size of about 30-36). The Aequi Junior stabilizes the ankle joint in both in- and eversion, in neutral and reflected position. Both dorsal and planter flexion remain sufficiently free to walk normally.
The brace functions optimally when worn in a sturdy (lace) shoe. The scale, which forms the basis of the brace, provides the right support for the ankle in a simple and comfortable way. Cross-cutting tyres made of non-elastic material provide adequate mechanical support while elastic bands provide the right compression.
Acute ankle ligament injury: both in- and eversion trauma, stabilization of conservatively or surgically treated ankle fractures, (Residual) instability and Secondary prevention of ankle ligament injury.
