Product Questions

Would this brace help with foot drop, for times / shoes where I don't want to wear a full-foot knee height AFO?
Question by: S on Jul 20, 2016, 1:40 PM
Unfortunately no, for drop foot you would need to wear an AFO. We have the Super LITE AFO, see below:

Hello, so I was looking at the sizes and I am right on the edge of the Small or Medium as I wear shoe size of 9-9.5. So I am not sure which one I would be better off either the Small which is the end of the range or the Medium which is the beginning of the range. Any suggestions?
Question by: Nick on Oct 12, 2016, 7:32 AM
Based on your shoe size Mens 9-9.5 we recommend a size Medium.

How does it prevent rolls? It seems to sit low on the outside of the foot.
Question by: Kalen on Jul 10, 2016, 5:47 PM
The POD ankle brace prevents rolls using the “Protection On Demand” technology, which provides compression like taping. The anatomical TPU shell molds to fit your foot shape, allowing the lower profile to fit any shoe.

As an athletic trainer, my coaches have requested use of the Don Joy Performance POD Ankle Braces in substitution of an ankle taping. Do you have any supporting evidence, such as a research study, that you could provide on the stability and efficacy of the ankle brace?
