The BetterGuard

High-performance ankle support for elite athletes

Take a closer look

BEST ANKLE SUPPORT BRACE

Mini ankle stabilizer

The mini ankle stabilizer adapts to your movements and works like an artificial ligament. It offers freedom of movement during normal gameplay and instant support when twisting forces in the ankle joint reach dangerous velocities.

Adjustable, dual-strap closure

The adjustable, dual-strap closure system gives you the perfect fit for your ankles. It sits above the shoe line for easy access, so you can adjust your fit in game without unlacing your shoes.

Ankle compression sleeve

The BetterGuard is made with breathable, lightweight compression, making it 40% lighter than traditional ankle braces.

System strap

The system uses an adjustable strap to connect the mini ankle stabilizer to the lower and upper frames, engaging the entire ankle protection system for dynamic joint stabilization.

MINI ADAPTIVE ANKLE STABILIZER

Welcome to adaptive sports technology

Comfortable, stable and easy

While wearing the Better guard ankle support I have noticed a great amount of stability. With the amazing suspension system and loose but comfortable sleeve I feel secure and happy to wear this brace for my everyday active activities

Best ankle brace for soccer!

I have tried the lace up ankle braces, the velcro ones, the hard plastic ones. I've tried taping. None of it works, it's too uncomfortable, or a huge hassle. But the betterguard is perfect! I barely feel it in my cleats and no issues with my ankles the whole season. Just picked up another pair!

Significant relief

I don’t have an ankle rolling issue. I have a complete reconstruction of cartilage, ligament, and tendons. This was 8 years ago. I need a replacement but after wearing the brace while under heavy stress (running/sprinting) I have found relief, less pain during activity, and now recovery is minimal. Hope it lasts I recommend!!!!

Great Product!

As a high school basketball coach, ensuring the safety and performance of my players is my top priority. With several players using this brace, I've witnessed firsthand the remarkable difference it has made in preventing ankle injuries and enhancing stability on the court. The brace's design offers unparalleled support without hindering mobility, allowing my players to move freely and confidently during games and practices. Its durability has stood the test of rigorous training sessions and intense games, proving to be a reliable asset for our team.
