Larry Schneider suffers from Parkinson's Disease and Dystonia and started using The Ankle Roll Guard for support with great success:
"I suffer from PD and Dystonia, one of which is the reason why both (more so the right foot) feet tend to roll outward. I've tried all types of braces and they just seem to bend or roll with my ankle causing pain as they dig into the side of my leg. I currently use an Allard USA BlueRocker and have tried 4 different individual braces from a DonJ...oy to a podiatrist fitted brace but all cause pain & callouses. I just needed to find the "right" brace, so I did a search and found the Ankle Roll Guard. Man-o-man! Many thanks to you and your invention! I came to realize how much the ARG helped me stand and walk with more stability because the ankle's range of motion isn't limited! The ARG even works while I'm using the elliptical machine!
I've got to tell you that your invention has the potential to be a breakthrough medical device. Just last week a fellow Dystonia friend of mine broke several bones in his foot trying to get around. Your device could save thousands of dystonic feet.

School of Kinesiology, Lakehead University study in the International Journal of Sports Science on the effect of wearing ankle braces on athletic performance.

"I have now played 2 softball games with your ankle roll guard while wearing cleats. Last night's game it saved my ankle from rolling over. I was running to first base and my ankle wanted to roll when I landed on the corner of first base and the roll guard blocked it from happening. Very happy with your product and it's holding up great. Thanks for inventing such a great product!!!"
