The McDavid Ankle Sleeve features a 4-way stretch that facilitates comfort and compression in all directions.
The brace also features Mcdavid’s exclusive 5-needle stitch for a flatter, cleaner and stronger seam. The brace also has an exterior layer of nylon fabric for added durability.
The McDavid Ankle Sleeve is constructed from 100% neoprene(CR), a latex free compound. Its latex free construction eliminates any risk of adverse medical reaction for those with latex sensitivities.
Utilizing 100% neoprene gives superior resilience, tensile strength, tear resistance, compression set and heat aging benefits. Although McDavid recommends air drying for its SportMed products , the use of 100% neoprene means that the product will survive repeated washings and dryings.
The 3.2mm thickness of the neoprene used in the construction of this low profile brace makes it easier to wear with regular clothing.
The choice of neoprene for construction provides thermal compression for more effective healing.
