Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOISE, Idaho - Jul 28, 2017 - In March of 2016, Ankle Roll Guard received an Idaho IGEM Grant of $250k to work with Boise State University’s Center for Orthopaedic & Biomechanics Research (COBR) lab to study the effectiveness of the Ankle Roll Guard versus ankle braces and tape. Testing began January 15 and the first progress report has been published! “Testing to date has shown equivalent inversion protection to an external brace and closed basket weave (standard) ankle tape.” –Dr. Tyler Brown, PhD, CSCS, Assistant Professor, Director, COBR.
Additionally, the Ankle Roll Guard performed better than the ASO brace and tape in “peak angle inversion” and “vertical jump height”. The restriction of braces & tape in performing physical activity is a significant find. For example, vertical jump in basketball & volleyball is critical and testing confirmed the unique benefits of the Ankle Roll Guard…roll protection with range of motion & comfort.
