    • I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and have very weak ankles that roll multiple times a week. Would this be a good brace, or do you suggest something else?
    • The DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup is designed more for an acute injury. A great brace to look at to prevent your ankles rolling is the brand new DonJoy Performance POD. It was launched last week and is made specifically to prevent the ankle joint from rolling. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performance-pod-ankle-brace

    • I sprained my ankle 3 years old and torn my ligaments on my right ankle and also had two surgeries in a year and a half. My most recent surgery was March 3, 2016. I went through so many ankle braces I need a good one. Right now I am wearing a spandex ankle brace. I am still swollen and pain a lot. I am on my feet for like 8 and 10 hours a day. In also sit a lot for the pain. What will be a good brace for standing,swollen, and keeping my ligaments in place.
    • I would take a look at the DONJOY PERFORMANCE POD ANKLE BRACE. It is gives you maximum support, lightweight and low profile so you can wear it anywhere and anywhere.
  • Renee at 7/7/2016 3:35 PM
    • Will this work to immobilize for a tendinitis problem. It looks less cumbersome than a boot
    • No, the DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup does not immobilize the ankle. It will prevent the ankle from inversion/eversion (rolling the ankle) but will not immobilize. Only a boot can immobilize the foot and ankle.

    • I play volleyball year round and have naturally weak ankles. I've worn a few different types of braces in the past and rolled my ankles right through them. What would be the best brace for me to wear?
    • Hello Brooke,
      The DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup is an excellent brace to prevent ankle injuries. The rigid shell will stabilize and prevent the ankle from rolling. Another option would be the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace. This brace is a lower profile moderate support that will help prevent ankle instabilities as well.

      Here is the link for the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace:

    • I have a grade 3 ankle injury with multiple torn ligaments including the middle ligament up my chin. Was on crutches, then boot cast and now air cast stirup...I have been 3 months and still the high ankle ligament isn't healed. I need to wear support but I have a small woman's foot..size 6.5...is there a more supportive cast that would fit in a shoe for me?
    • Darlene
      Take a look at the Velocity Ankle Brace. this is our most supportive ankle brace that comes in three different support styles. The brace fits easily into shoes and is very comfortable. In you case I would choose either the moderate Support(MS) or Extra support (ES). http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace
  • Gina at 3/10/2015 9:11 AM
    • My son had a torn peroneal tendon repaired & he was missing the notch that is behind the ankle bone that holds that tendon so they made him the notch while in surgery. The Dr. is recommending a rubber waterproof ankle brace about 1/8" or 1/4" thick that can fit into a wakeboard for water sports. Can you let me know which brace you would recommend for this?

    • Gina
      The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace would work for that and can be worn without a shoe and still provide stability to the ankle. A traditional ankle stirrup such as the Universal ankle stirrup will not give as much support without shoes. I am not that familar with wake boarding, so if you need something very thin, neither of these braces is less than 1/4 ". A thinner brace would be the A60, this is a lower profile version of the Airsport. This may benefit your sun and stay within the 1/4"

    • My daughter is a competitive dancer, she broke her fibula and will be in a boot for 4 weeks. She dances bare footed, what is the best type of brace for her. I'm looking for the highest level of support.
    • Susan
      I would suggest the Air Cast AirSport ankle brace. The brace offers great support yet it could be worn with out shoes or socks.

    • My mother broker her ankle when she was younger, now that she has gotten older her foot sometimes turns inward while she is walking. Would this brace help prevent that, or if not, could you possibly recommend which one would? Thank you.
    • Nicole
      The Universal Ankle Stirrup will prevent ankle inversion/eversion(in and out) while wearing the brace ina shoe to prevent ankle injury. It will not prevent toe in(pigeon toed) walking because that is not occuring at the ankle. This type of walking is caused by the lower leg rotating in

    • My daughter is 10 and has broken the same foot twice playing basketball. She is in braces always when she plays sports. However, her foot is growing and we need to purchase new braces. She wears a size 7 shoe in women's. What's the reccommended brace for her?
    • The best ankle protection while allowing good range opf motion would be the Stabilizer Pro Ankle Brace by DonJoy, this is closest to a tape job by an Athletic Trainer without being taped.

    • My daughter plays volleyball almost year round. What would be the best support for her ankles?
    • Greg
      For a volleyball player i would suggest the Velocity ankle Brace. It is a hinged ankle brace that comes in three different supports. The moderate support should be good enough to help protect her ankles during the sport. Most volley players wear this type of hinged ankle support instead of the traditional lace-up becasue of all of the jumping they do. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace
  • Mary Ann at 7/15/2014 9:46 PM
    • I just re-injured my right ankle (many rollover incidents over the past year); but this incident was more severe, 2 torn ankle ligaments and old 'chip fracture' of the foot. I am in my first 2 weeks post injury with crutches and walking boot. I will be off crutches in three days, but am supposed to stay on the boot for 4 more weeks. I am going on vacation on Saturday and am looking for a lighter 'boot' to provide acute post injury support while at the pool and light walking. The big Frankenstein boot will be too cumbersome down at the pool and sleeping. From my research, it appears that the Air Cast Air-Stirrup ankle brace would be the most appropriate for my needs. Any suggestions? I would like to order the brace for overnight delivery by tomorrow, so any information would be most helpful.
      Thank you.
    • Mary ann
      The ankle stirrup is a transition brace for those who have been cleared by their physicina to stop wearing the boot. Check with your physician

    • I have a severe pronation of my foot which cause instability and pain on the outside of my ankle. I am also an ex college lineman so I'm 6'4 over 400 pounds, what is the best brace for me.
    • Dennis
      I would suggest the Velocity Ankle Brace http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace that brace has a hinge and is rigid so it will help lift up your arch somewhat. Chech your calf measurement to see if you will fit the wide calf

    • I have nerve damage that has affected my right ankle and heel. I am looking for something with medium support for ankle to prevent injury but allows normal range of motion, easy to put on everyday and fits into any type of footwear (i.e sneakers, boots or dress shoes) with out having to buy a larger shoe to accommodate the brace. Also is the foot closure portion on the DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup adjustable using Velcro?

      Thanks for your assistance
    • The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro is going to give you support and will fit into any shoe. The Universal Ankle Stirrup won't fit into shoes very easy, although is is easy to put on. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace Take a look at the Stabilizing Pro

    • I am unable to walk and have very weak ankles. I need to provide foot support for transferring me as I take my weight without enduring ankle pain. I am a size 7 in a regular shoe. Which ankle support would you recommend for me?

    • Thank you for your question. The ankle stirrup would be simple to put on and give your ankles support during the short term weigh bearing of transferring.

    • Hello my daughter is a softball player and is coming off a lower tibia fracture. She is due to come out of her post cast boot shortly... We are wondering which brace would be best suited for such a injury,,,although the fracture is low on the leg they are treating it as a ankle injury... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..thanks Dave
    • Thank you for your question. You daughter may be comfortable in a DonJoy Stabilizing PRO Ankle or even a DonJoy Velocity. If you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

    • I have a friend who is unable to stand or walk very much. She was a premature baby weighing less than a pound at birth and I suspect her motor functions are affected. She is able to transfer herself however.

      Would this type of braces help her to be more stable on her feet and during therapies? Will the braces also provide good ankle support? Her shoe size is US 4. Would this brace fit comfortably into the althetic shoes and hiking boots that she wears to school?

      Thank you very much.
    • Lisa
      The Universal ankle stirrup will give your friend ankle support and will fit into a tennis shoe. It will limit the in-and -out movement of the ankle but will allow her foot to move up and down. It is Universal so it should fit her foot.

    • I was recently told that I have "loose ligaments" by my Physical Therapist for pulled tendons in my lower back. Four days ago, I fell down 4 my outside stairs and sprained both my ankles. My right one felt worse than the left one that day. The next day I realized that my left ankle was actually much worse off. I put my aircast (that I already owned) on it. While looking at my aircast, I realized that it soon need to be replaced. What would you recommend for a brace as me spraining both ankles is quite a common occurrence for me.

      Thank you!!
    • Dani
      The DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup is a good choice for someone who sprains their ankle often. You can wear it everyday to help prevent any future ankle sprains as well. The brace is universal and will fit either ankle so you can wear just one or one on each ankle
  • Paula at 10/9/2013 5:20 PM
    • Hi,

      I have a weak left ankle with a history of ligament damage. Most recently I suffered a chip fracture in that same ankle. I am looking for a stability brace that will work with all shoe types (i.e. not athletic shoes). Which brace would you recommend?

    • Paula,
      This brace is rigid and will provide good support to your ankle. It is stream line enough to fit within most shoes. Another option if you are an active individual might be the DonJoy Stabilizing Ankle Brace. This brace contains articulated stays on each side to provide medial and lateral support. a The DonJoy Stabilizing Ankle also comes in 8 sizes which may offer a better fit for you.
      Thank you for contacting DJO.

      Thank You
    • I would go with the super lite AFO I have attached a link here: http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-super-lite-afo

  • Richard at 7/11/2013 9:35 PM
    • Can I wear this with a combat boot over? I recently broke my ankle and tore ligaments. After 2 months I can walk, but it's still tender and don't have full range of motion.
    • Hello Richard,

      Yes, you can fit this ankle brace into an athletic shoe. I recommend the Pro Stabilizing Ankle, Velocity Ankle, and the Airsport Ankle for severe ankle injuries.

      The Pro, is similiar to having your ankle taped. It has figure 8 strapping.

      The Velocity is Rigid on the medial and lateral side, great support, higher brace.

      Airsport, similar to the Air Stirrup. Cushioned on the inside, with rigid medial and lateral support.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Jenn at 5/3/2013 8:04 PM
    • Can you wear this brace while playing sports?
    • Hello, Jenn -

      Although this brace is normally recommended for post-acute injuries, it can be worn during sporting activities.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • John at 4/29/2013 7:53 AM
    • In August 2009 while playing basketball I landed on someone's foot when I came down from a shot. I suffered a grade III sprain. I was put in a cam walker and on crutches for approximately a week and required Lortab to get through the day. Last Thursday I stepped on a foot while attempting to jump off one leg. I have a grade III sprain and fractured the talus. The obvious solution is to stop playing basketball (I'm 28); however, I don't like that option. Which brace would be best for me? I want to continue playing (when this heals) and need max support without limiting mobility (too much). I think the DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup might work. How is it different than the ProCare Universal Ankle Support (other than $13/piece)?
    • Hello, John -

      Because of the severity of your sprains, we would recommend a more rigid and stronger ankle brace. The DonJoy Velocity would be your best choice to provide maximum support during your desired activity to best protect your ankle from further reinjury:

      The two that you mentioned (DonJoy Universal Ankle Stirrup and ProCare Universal Ankle Support) are similar braces. These braces provide mild to moderate support for ankle sprains, not nearly to the level of the DonJoy Velocity.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • What foot size can get in there? My shoe size is 13, and my feet is pretty bulky. The generic ankle braces don't fit me.
    • Yes your foot would fit into this ankle brace.
  • Cory at 4/14/2011 6:36 AM
    • I had an ankle dislocation 3 years ago. I've suffered with chronic pain and immovability. I didn't break any bones but tore all ligaments and tendons and un aligned my toe structures. I've tryed many ankle braces bu none have offered support. I have common issues when I step onto my foot at random times my ankle gives out and I fall having to grab whatevers around me. Would this be a good fit for activities such as walking and basic wear? I live an active life and only 23 and have been held back by this. My podiatrist has recommended 3 others but fail after 2 or 3 uses my ankle still slides forward and or back due to no cartlidge left. Thanks!
    • Cory,
      Thank you for taking the time to email us here at www.betterbraces.com. The best product we offer for your ankle condition would be the Donjoy Velocity ankle brace. If you have inflammation I recommend the ES (Extra Support) or MS (Moderate Support). Otherwise, if you don't have swelling, the LS (Light Support) would be sufficient. If you have any other questions feel free to give us a call at 800-553-6019.

    Ankle brace is great, straps are awful!

    I have had a bad talus for years and always wear the universal ankle brace. But over time the straps have changed to a non stretchable, not soft at all type that is awful! When I don't wear a tall sock, they dig into my skin and hurt! Very unpleasant feeling! Please go back to the original or does anyone know where I can buy them?

    ...for Norma, I also wear a new balance tennis shoe with a rollbar, this helps with supanation.
    Pros: Keeps my ankle firm
    Cons: Straps cut into my leg!

    Have had multiple surgeries for ligament and tendon injuries. Luckily had this brace on when having to walk on large rock gravel driveway-could feel my ankle start to turn, but the brace kept my ankle from rotating and also kept me from falling!! Ordering another one for my other ankle.
    Pros: IT works
    Cons: Can't think of one.

    Bought two of these for sister who suffered traumatic brain injury in a car accident. She uses a standing lift, but her feet roll terribly; plus she has drop foot. These help a lot to stabilize her feet.
