EXO-L ankle brace offers optimal protection and, based on a 3D scan of your ankles, is custom-made.

The EXO-L ankle brace provides the best protection against twisting (inversion trauma) of the ankle. EXO-L is custom-made using a 3D scan of your ankle. The EXO-L ankle brace prevents the ankle from spraining. This operation is based on the anatomy of the body.

“With normal movements, the muscles and tendons are not unnecessarily relieved and therefore do not become unnecessarily weak. This is the case with a regular brace. The EXO-L ankle brace only intervenes when your ankle threatens to sprain. Because the brace is custom-made, you retain maximum freedom of movement while being optimally protected.” – Philippe Vermaelen, Runners’ lab R&D Prolab

Ankle sprain prevention

Measuring is done with a 3D scan of your ankle(s). The EXO-L ankle brace is custom 3D printed from this. The EXO-L attaches to your ankle as well as the outside of your shoe. The brace is designed so that you do not experience annoying pressure points in your shoe. This way, the normal fit of your shoe can be maintained. Your shoe will need to be adjusted in our workshop for this. This special EXO-L attachment can be placed on almost all low shoes.

Who is the EXO-L ankle brace suitable for?

  • For people sensitive to ankle tipping. After a serious ankle injury, the chances of twisting your ankle again are higher than before.
  • In high-risk sports such as field hockey, handball, basketball, tennis, running, trail running, soccer, volleyball, etc.
  • Working conditions on rough and uneven terrain, such as in the construction industry.
