Untape With New “Protection On Demand” Ankle Brace

Featuring patent-pending technology, the POD® Ankle Brace is designed to engage specifically when needed to proactively resist ankle roll and other common ankle injuries.

Ankle injuries are some of the most common injuries during physical activity. With football season right around the corner, the POD Ankle Brace helps to provide ankle protection to all athletes from the youth player to the elite athlete. Taping has been the traditional method for ankle protection. However, POD, unlike taping, provides freedom of movement, adjustability and stability without breaking down, allowing athletes to maintain or improve their footwork and speed. POD is also 30 percent lighter than the average ankle brace, and features super soft EVA lining, low profile cuff and adjustable underfoot closure. Designed for all athletes of all sports, the POD Ankle can be worn to support one weak ankle or worn on both ankles to help reduce the risk of injuries.


“DonJoy Performance is committed to helping athletes stay healthy and injury-free so they can keep playing the sports they love. Through use of the POD Ankle Brace, athletes who participate in sports like soccer, lacrosse, football and basketball can play with confidence, limiting the worry of turning or rolling their ankles from aggressive moves,” says Charlie Setzler, GM of DonJoy Performance.

DonJoy Performance leveraged Australian sports medicine company, POD Active, to bring the Human Motion® and POD technologies to market in an ankle brace. POD technology allows the body to move naturally, engaging only as the ankle enters into an “at risk” position. By allowing the body to move without restriction throughout the safe, natural motion zone, the POD Ankle Brace is comfortable and supportive at the same time.

“POD Active is focused on designing products for modern athletes and we've seen tremendous success using Human Motion technology in our products. When it came to the ankle technology we chose to work with DonJoy Performance to ensure we met the needs of athletes across an expanded array of sports, and the brand is dedicated to providing consumers with market-leading products that are innovative, accessible and of the highest quality. The new POD ankle is a game changer,” said POD Active Managing Director, Geoff Maloney.

The POD Ankle Brace is available in Black and White, with a MSRP of $79.99.
