About

AnkleMax

Welcome to the next generation of sports safety gear.

 

We have created a device that begins to absorb the anterior point of impact before the critical injurious angle is reached.  Simply, our device acts as a barrier between the anterior lower edge of the foot and an opposing hard surface in order to lessen the probability of an interior ankle sprain and or break.  In addition to absorbing the initial awkward angle impact, we believe our device will help decrease the chance of a much more severe injury extended to the 5th metatarsal joint and ankle bone of the foot.
