    • Is this Brace Waterproof?
    • Yes you can wear this brace in the water. Make sure to rinse with clean water after and lay flat to air dry.
  • Jillian at 4/24/2016 8:54 PM
    • Is the support on the sides metal, bone, or just hard plastic. I'm looking for a support that will not allow my ankle to move side to side.
    • The supports in the brace are plastic
  • Dayna at 4/7/2016 6:27 AM
    • I broke my ankle badly last year playing baseball. I'm full of screws and a metal plate. I want extra support getting back out there is season. What would you suggest. I've been looking at the bionic ankle support
    • The Bionic ankle will provide mild ankle support. I would suggest a brace with a little more support such as the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace. this brace is worn by athletes and will provide better support than the bionic
  • ERICK at 4/5/2016 5:40 PM
    • I managed to stress fracture my outer metatarsal bone and severely strained both peroneal tendon in my left foot. Rather than go with a cast or walking boot for 5-6 weeks I chose to forgo that option because I drive a dirt racecar, and racing season starts in 3 weeks. I'm looking for a brace that will help provide some compression on my foot to help ease/swelling, and help support/stabilize my foot and ankle until the tendons can heal, but one that I can still wear under my shoe and compete with. Would the Bionic ankle be a good option?
    • Sure the Bionic Ankle will offer mild support and fit into a shoe
  • Matt Lepke at 3/22/2016 10:30 AM
    • Can you use these in track for jumping?
    • Yes you can
  • Bian at 1/31/2016 5:02 PM
    • My question pertains to sizing of the bionic ankle brace, I had a bad fracture to my left ankle 24 years ago (42 now). Due to the callous formation my ankle is larger. Wearing a size 11 shoe should I go with the large? However I do not want to sacrifice the appropiate support.
    • If you go with the larger size because of a larger ankle the brace should still provide adequate support.
  • Scott at 1/28/2016 10:56 AM
    • I have flat feet I'm missing the middle ligament in my right ankle it rolls bad I was supposed to wear an Afo but it was generic and bothered my calf was looking at the bionic ankle brace !
    • The bionic Ankle Brace will provid mild ankle support, for more moderate support look at the airCast Air Sport anle brace
  • David at 12/23/2015 2:13 PM
    • Bionic Bbrace is the angle adjustable with heat in a microw oven on low and how
    • no the hinge is aluminum and cannot be put in a microwave oven at all. The hinge is not adjustable
  • Scotty at 11/29/2015 7:49 PM
    • If I want to order 2, one for each ankle, do I have to place separate orders?
    • Scotty
      This brace is left/right specific so you will have to order one for each ankle
  • Gillian at 11/25/2015 8:31 AM
    • I sprained my ankle a few years ago pretty bad. I've tried many braces and stabilizers and nothing helps. My ankle rolls when I walk or run and gives out on me. What would you suggest would help? Thanks!
    • Gillian
      Since you have chronic instability I would suggest the Don Joy Velocity. The Velocity is a hinged ankle brace that will fit inot your shoe but provide maximum stabilization and should prevent the ankle rolling. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace I would also suggest the moderate support feature for the brace
  • Ana at 11/10/2015 7:57 AM
    • My fibularis was injured from just behind the my ankle bone along to where it attaches on the side of my foot.

      I tried the A60, but I got absolutely no support from it. No matter how tight I made it my heel slipped and my foot moved all over the place. The smaller size wouldve been too small. Taping works, but its hard to do.

      I would like to have enough motion to be able to jog and hike, but enough support to keep from twisting or inverting my foot. Do you have any recommendations?
    • Ana
      Try the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace. this brace has more support than the A60 but is like a tape job but does not get loose after 30 minute of sweating
  • M Katherine at 11/4/2015 7:41 PM
    • I severely sprained my left ankle. I just ordered from you the Aircast Airsport . I like it because of the cushioning, which I need for my sore ankle. But it is very bulky in the shoe. Is the Bionic ankel brace less bulky? Does it have the same kind of padding? Thank you.
    • The Airsport provides moderate support for the ankle, the Bionic Ankle will provide mild support and have less padding but will be thinner to fit in the shoe better
  • Joanne at 10/26/2015 1:30 PM
    • My daughter plays competitive club volleyball in college. She suffered a subtalar medial dislocation (dislocated her ankle). Can you recommend a brace for her? She was told dislocations can re-occur and is looking for a very stabilizing ankle brace. Thank you.
    • Joanne
      I would suggest the Don Joy Velocity ankle brace for your daughter. This brace is our most supportive ankle brace as it is hinged. The brace comes in three different support styles and I would suggest either the moderate or extra support for your daughter. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace
  • Eli at 10/18/2015 7:45 PM
    • I have a size 12 foot and I was wondering if I should get a smaller size so it fits really well?
    • Eli
      The medium may be too small I would suggest getting the large
  • Charlie at 10/12/2015 10:33 PM
    • I am recovering from a fracture of my fibula and a high ankle sprain. I was told I need a better brace to prevent future high ankle sprains as I will break my ankle the next time it happens. What is the best brace to wear daily while providing the best support for all activities?
    • Charlie
      The AirCast Air Sport ankle brace is a good brace that offers great support for prevention of ankle injuries and can be used for both daily activities and sports. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace
  • Brian Kern at 9/24/2015 6:03 AM
    • I'm buying team ankle braces for my varsity basketball players, and would like something comfortable and preventative. Would this be a good brace for that? I've worn Rocket Soc's before and they worked well, but a re a little pricey, I'm wondering if this is comparable?
    • Brian
      I would suggest the don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace. This brace is similar to having the ankle tapped without getting loose after 30 minutes of sweating. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • Jonathan at 9/21/2015 11:51 AM
    • I am suffering from chronic ankle sprains and torn detached ligaments in each ankle. Which brace is preferable: Performance bionic ankle brace or Stabilizing pro ankle brace?
    • Jonathan
      The Stabilizing Pro ankle brace is amore supportive brace than the Bionic ankle brace. I would suggest the Stabilizing Pro for your ankle
  • Susan at 8/27/2015 8:35 PM
    • How would these work for volleyball? Or what you you recommend?
    • Hello,

      Thank you for contacting Betterbraces. This is a great option for mild support to the ankle. It will fit great in a volleyball shoe with its sleek design. If your looking for more Rigid support I recommend you look at the Velocity Ankle brace, this is more of the common style worn by volleyball players. Please contact us with additional questions 1-800-553-6019.

      Have a Great Day.

    • Would this be a good brace for my daughter who is a soccer player and continually rolls her ankles. She is also a cross country runner and dancer.
    • Carla
      Yes the Bionic Ankle Brace would be an adequate brace for your daughter to wear during her activities to help prevent her ankle from rolling

    • I have 2 detached ligaments due to really badly sprained ankle while running. I d love to go back to running and wondering if this brace offers the support / protection my ankle would need to do so to avoid spraining it again. thanks!
    • Lulu
      Yes the Bionic Ankle Brace will offer adequate support for your ankle while running and will help prevent a re-sprain of the ankle
  • Gus Wohl at 8/7/2015 6:34 PM
    • Would this brace help drop foot?
      If not could you recommend one

    • Hi Gus,

      This brace does not help with Drop Foot. I would recommend an AFO Brace, the Procare Super Lite AFO.

      You will need to order through DJO Global at 800-336-6569.

  • lindsey cain at 7/17/2015 7:50 PM
    • are these recommended for cross country runners?
    • Yes, the DonJoy Performance Bionic Ankle Brace will work great for cross country. It is low profile, breathable and offers excellent compression, support and protection from ankle injuries.

    Great brace

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I am an retired marathon runner. I broke my ankle very badly this March. I am recovering but have weak ankles and roll out and cause more damage. This brace provides protection for both sides of my ankle and relief from pain. My orthopedic surgeon really liked your brace and I am wearing most of the time. Very comfortable. The price is amazing. I highly recommend it. Great for runners. Walkers. And for injuries

    Outstanding product for use after ligamentous ankle injury!

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    Had torn the medial tibial ligament of my right foot which had put me out of commission for close to one year. Following recuperation, I was experiencing temporary return of pain every time I would try to work out, despite trying different types of able braces. However, after starting to use the bionic ankle brace, I was able to accelerate my work-outs and sports activities to my original levels with only minimal temporary discomfort. Truly a life-saver!

    Outstanding support. In the past month, I've rolled my ankle twice. Actually ended up in urgent care the second time. This brace has solved my problem. I wear it with my work boots and have never felt so stable. I'm wearing it more often now. Running errands, doing yard work, etc. If you have ankle stability issues, this is the brace for you.

    Increases support, permits return to physical training

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I suffered calcaneous fracture and complex ankle fracture, requiring multiple surgeries with titanium implants. This resulted in much swelling, ankle weakness, and reduced my level of physical activity. With this brace and orthotics, I resumed physical training, lost weight, and increased my independence!
    Pros: Lightweight, easy to wear and washable. Fits many shoes.
    Cons: Ankle may swell if worn too long.

    I have coached youth football for 29 years and seen a lot of sprains in my day. This is best, most comfortable ankle brace out there, per my players. I have a kid who prone to sprains, so he wears his to every practice and game, it does reduce the chance of re-spraining, due to its construction. I highly recommend this product.

    Ordered this brace, came within 2 days as shipment stated however I wish I took more consideration reading reviews.
    Pros: Durable and gives support, not bulky
    Cons: Very snug and if you have an injury it is painful to put in and take off . I have narrow feet and I ordered based on my shoes size and it is very hard to wear not to mention painful

    The brace gives great support while being sleek in the design. I have had a devastating injury and this helps a lot. The only issue I have is the sizing goes by shoe size but it's very tight. It works but a little hard to get on and off.

    Recently rolled my ankle on the golf course. Bought the Donjoy Bionic ankle brace and it really added a great deal of support. Was actually able to walk almost normally within a few days while wearing the brace.
    Pros: Supportive, lightweight, comfortable, inexpensive.
    Cons: Since the sleeve is a pretty tight fit, putting it on a sore swollen ankle can be a little painful.

    awesome brace for post-sprain

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    My 13 yr old daughter used this brace after a severe ankle sprain and it has been wonderful for her. She felt amazing support and was able to walk with it on only 3 days after crutches do to the side support she felt while wearing it. We walked all over NYC and she didn't complain about it once. It was snug and didn't rub or bother her at all. It was just what she needed before transitioning into a "sock" brace as she eased back into her dance training.
    Pros: great stability, easy to use

    Bionic Ankle Brace

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I broke my ankle and wore a cast for 8 weeks, and then I was placed in a very bulky boot for 10 weeks. The ankle is still weak and extremely vulnerable to a sprain or even another fracture. The brace supports the ankle using the same metal supports as the original bulky boot I was placed in but is lighter in weight and much less bulky. It is just too tight on my leg causing numbness.
    Pros: The brace is well made. The support it offers is great.
    Cons: The brace is too tight on my leg, causing problems with circulation of the ankle and foot.
