How Does an External Ankle Brace Work?

TayCo Brace products work with your shoe to support and stabilize your ankle and hindfoot by limiting movement in different directions. It does this by controlling how your foot moves forward and backward, side to side, and even up and down — all while wearing a sturdy athletic walking/jogging shoe, work boot, diabetic shoe, or cleat. The extra support from your footwear will work in tandem with the brace to get you back on your feet faster.
