Started IGEM @IdahoCommerce funded testing of the The Ankle Roll Guard at Boise State University today! Using Vicon Motion analysis system and BSU built drop plank to simulate ankle rolling. Data available hopefully in a few months comparing effectiveness to ankle braces & tape!
School of Kinesiology, Lakehead University study in the International Journal of Sports Science on the effect of wearing ankle braces on athletic performance. "Conclusions: These findings suggest that ankle bracing may have a negative impact on vertical jump height, regardless of the type of brace worn."
Christopher Dean is the owner and inventor of the Ankle Roll Guard. With lateral ankle instability from football and basketball, he is also a customer!
