How Rigid Is A Hinged Ankle Brace?
Hinged ankle braces have a supportive shell design for sure, but it should be stressed that most are not absolutely rigid and instead have mild to moderate flex built into the shell - they flex and pivot out on a basketball court, and allow you to cut on a football field. Second, hinged ankle braces feature heavy padding inside the shell itself to provide comfort inside almost any type of shoe. For anyone who has a history of ankle sprains or has suffered an acute high ankle sprain, hinged ankle braces serve as the best choice for recovery and returning to full activty.
