Zamst A2-DX – the real MVP (Most valuable product)

14 July 2016

Moving around a basketball court at high speed has its risks. All those awkward landings and rapid changes of direction can be hard on the body, especially the ankles. That's why ankle sprains caused by basketball are so common, whether you're competing in front of thousands of people or just shooting some hoops with friends.

In the former category is Golden State Warriors Point Guard Stephen Curry, NBA MVP the last two seasons. Curry both plays and practices in the Zamst A2-DX Ankle Brace, which provides the protection and reassurance he needs to to perform on the court.

Features of the A2-DX Ankle Brace

Sounding a little like a minor character in Star Wars, the A2-DX does in fact have some futuristic technology at its disposal. Here are some of the features of the ankle brace that make it so effective:

  • a-Fit – anatomically correct support for the right or left ankle
  • Exo-Grid (Xternal) – dual moulded exterior support structures provide enhanced, anatomically correct medial and lateral stability (for eversion/inversion)
  • Grip-Tech – anti migration technology prevents the A2-DX Ankle Brace from slipping during activities
  • i-Fit – Open panel design with adjustable fasteners provides individualised fit, enhanced comfort and variable compression levels
  • ROM-Tech – Pre-curved design to provide full range of motion for maximised performance levels
  • X-Strap Stabiliser – Provides 3-way anterior, lateral and medial support

About Ankle Sprains

An ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments (tough bands of tissue) that surround and connect the bones of the leg to the foot. Ankle sprains usually occur when you twist your ankle or turn on it in an awkward way. They can happen at any time, but are particularly frequent during sports such as basketball, which involve jumping and changes of direction at speed.

This is why the Zamst A2-DX Ankle Brace is so well suited to basketball, and the choice of the professionals such as Stephen Curry. You're more susceptible to re-injury if you've already sprained the ankle before, so the A2-DX Ankle Brace can be used either after an ankle sprain, or as a preventative measure.

Why Stephen Curry Chooses the A2-DX Ankle Brace

Stephen Curry knows better than most how debilitating ankle injuries can be to professional sportsmen. Curry's early NBA career was littered with ankle troubles, meaning he couldn't stay on the court long enough to make the same impact he's making today. He began wearing the ankle brace during the 2012/3 season, and since then it's given him the mental and physical confidence to be one of the game's best players. 

The effect that being properly protected has cannot be understated. If you're constantly worrying about injury you won't be able to push yourself as hard as you need to, and performance will suffer. As Curry himself has said: "The Zamst A2-DX is the only product that has given me the full confidence to play without the fear of re-injuring my ankle."
