The Push Aequi is an effective ankle orthosis, which strikes a balance between efficient mechanical support of an unstable ankle and good wearer comfort. The rigid support is situated exclusively on the medial (inner) side of the ankle and has a cavity for the malleolus. The lateral side is made from preformed foam, which easily adapts to the individual anatomy.
The bracing material is constructed in such a way that it is very rigid in the centre, becoming softer towards the edges to ensure a good fit and wearer comfort. The orthosis is fastened by means of a diagonal strap. The elastic straps apply pressure around the ankle.
The Push Aequi can be used in the functional treatment of ankle injuries and as a long term support in cases of chronic ankle instability.
The inversion/eversion movement (inward / outward movement of the foot) is restricted while plantar/dorsal flexion (bending and stretching) is allowed, for adequate freedom.
This means that no inhibition is felt during normal walking and running. The numbers on the straps make fitting the orthosis simplicity itself. The Push Aequi is worn over the sock, and optimal stabilisation can only be achieved if it is worn with a closed (lace-up) shoe.
- Serious (residual) instability (under high stress)
- Treatment of acute lateral ankle ligament lesions
- Follow-up treatment of conservative or operated ankle fractures
- Arthrosis with instability without accumulation of fluid
- Secondary prevention of ankle ligament lesions (under high stress without accumulation of fluid)
There are no known disorders where the brace cannot or should not be worn. In the case of poor blood circulation in the limbs, a brace may cause hyperaemia. Avoid applying the brace too tightly in the beginning.
Pain is always a sign of warning. If the pain persists or the complaint deteriorates, it is advisable to consult your doctor or therapist.
