Accelerates Recovery and Reduces Swelling
The Air-Stirrup Plus combines the clinically proven Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace with an ankle wrap. In addition, a comprehensive instruction booklet is included with each Air-Stirrup Plus and provides information on treatment and rehabilitation – integral components of ankle sprain management.
Each Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace features anatomically designed shells lined with the patented Duplex™ aircell system. This exclusive system incorporates two pre-inflated overlapping aircells, distal and proximal, that produce graduated compression during ambulation. The compression promotes efficient edema reduction in addition to helping accelerate rehabilitation. The ankle wrap adds the benefits of additional swelling control to speed recovery.

Thank you for your time.
The brace has air in the pads so they will not freeze. You cannot use it for cold therapy
Please let me know if the Aircast Stirrup Plus is a better option for me and what is the difference between gel and Air.
any of the stirrup braces will be fine, they all work the same way. The aircast is pre-inflated with air in the bladders for comfort. we do not have an aircast that has gel inside instead of air, but the gel is used the same as the air.
The width of the ankle stirrup is adjustable. The difference is the sizing is the Height of the Brace. The taller the brace the more support that will be provided.
