Improving Ankle Rehabilitation For Football Players

Updated: Sep 11

The Empowerband Football Ankle Support is specifically designed to aid in the rehabilitation of ankle injuries in Football and provide more effective support for the end-stage rehabilitation process.

What are the problems with traditional tape and braces?

Rehabilitation aims to recover a player to full fitness and not become reliant on support. Taping is an industry-standard used by physios to prevent movement in the ankle joint to reduce the risk of re-injury, the problem is tape loses 80% of its efficiency within 20 minutes leading it to be ineffective. Tape and heavy braces also create bulk, cause discomfort and slow a player's mobility reducing their performance levels. The repeated use of heavy braces and tape on the ankle limits the use of ligaments and tendons weakening the ankle over time. This can create a negative impact on the rehabilitation process slowing recovery and preventing players from returning to full fitness and becoming reliant on support.

Empowerband provides the solution to this problem fitting into the end-stage rehabilitation process Empowerband offers a way to transition players from taping and heavy braces to full recovery. Empowerband is re-usable and maintains 100% support efficiency protecting the player from the risk of injury while providing an elastic spring promoting the active movement to the ankle ligaments to re-build strength, power, and stability back to the ankle, aiding rehabilitation and while the over-boot design provides a lighter and more comfortable fit eliminating the bulk and discomfort of tape and heavy braces which improves mobility and improves player performance.
