Human Flowboot Ankle Support
This is the human version. It is a molded soft foam boot which will allow for a tight wrap without cutting circulation or inhibit the motion of the ankle. A way to wrap an ankle as opposed to taping one. It prevents the inversion or eversion of the ankle. A stirrup system is imbedded in the foam preventing hyperextension or rolling over of the foot with a tight wrap stabilizing the joint. Openings, and grooves correspond to the arteries, veins, tendons, and allow the elastic wrap to bridge and not place direct pressure to blood flow or tendons. Openings also allow for dorsiflexion and plantar flexion, and full range of motion. Taping the ankle has its draw backs, constricting blood flow, and inhibiting the motion of the ankle, thus reducing performance. Once the tape is loose the support is gone. Braces have same draw backs as well if not more. Aside from the knee injuries ankle sprains are most prevalent often ending championship bids. This is an idea totally outside the box. The boot is made from a cast of an actual ankle making it anatomically correct.
