Ankle Roll Guard, LLC and Boise State University are applying for the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission grant on February 26th. If approved, BSU's COBR will conduct extensive inversion testing of the Ankle Roll Guard versus ankle braces and tape. This independent study will benefit BSU with funding and equipment for COBR and publish a white paper on results.
Dale Forsyth, Mother had a stroke & has mobility with ankle roll issues:
"I am pleased to tell you that the Ankle Roll Guard helps her so much! It is so simplistic but it really does keep her ankle from rolling, and certainly gives her more confidence - we just need more practice, really strength building is what she could use. And the device helps!"
The cushion is only 1.5 inches from the side of the shoe so the chance of another player tripping or landing on it are slim. In 3 years of use, there have been no issues.
Q: Does The Armor1 Ankle Roll Guard work on all shoes and all sizes?
A: The Ankle Roll Guard can be used on all low or high top athletic (walking/running/tennis/basketball) shoes or cleats. It will work on most other shoe types, boots, or orthotic shoes but e-mail or call us if you have any questions.
