Aircast Air Stirrup Ankle Brace
When you've just injured your ankle, the most important thing is to recover quickly so you can return to everyday life and sporting activities. The Aircast Air Stirrup Ankle Brace is commonly worn immediately after injuring your ankle and throughout recovery to accelerate rehabilitation.
Since 1978, this support has been the brace that the medical community has turned to for managing ankle injuries. The brace has been cited in over 100 medical journals for its superior performance in helping to heal ankle injuries. This means that it can help you get back on your feet as quickly as possible following an injury.

Sizing Guide for the Ankle Brace
The Air Stirrup Ankle Brace is available in four different sizes based on the height of the brace. To find out which height is best for you, measure from your heel up to the lower third of your tibia. The brace should sit just below the belly of your calf muscle so as not to inhibit movement in this area.
|Size ||Brace Height (cm) |
|Extra Small (Paediatric) ||15.24cm |
|Small ||22.22cm |
|Medium ||22.86cm |
|Large ||26.67cm |
Designed so you can perform all the activities you enjoy, the Aircast Air Stirrup Brace has a waterproof design. This allows you to wear the support in the pool or in the shower if your physician has told you to wear it at all times. After you get the support wet, it should be rinsed and allowed to air dry before you use it again.
Pre-Inflated Air Cells
The Aircast Air Stirrup Ankle Brace features two pre-inflated, overlapping air cells (distal and proximal) to provide support and produce graduated compression while you walk around. This helps reduce oedema (i.e. swelling caused by fluid trapped in your body tissue) and helps accelerate rehabilitation of ankle sprains. The support is anatomically designed to help immobilise the area and limit any pain you're experiencing as a result of the condition.
