The next EVOlution in ankle bracing technology is here. The MedSpec ASO EVO ankle stabilizer is an evolutionary step forward in ankle protection with its unique stabilizing straps and cuffs that incorporate the three main elements of an ankle taping application: stirrups, heel lock (figure eight), and circumferential closure. This support adds a new innovative design to the traditional lace-up ankle brace. The design enables it to comfortably provide exceptional ankle support and stability in the treatment of ankle injuries and to guard against the severity and frequency of future ankle sprains and strains.
The EVO is unique to other braces in that it has an inner stirrup strap built into the brace. The inner straps are closer to the skin than traditional ankle braces to allow a snugger and a more supportive fit. The internal stirrups provide a better capture of the heel and resist excessive inversion and eversion motions of the ankle. The dynamic internal plastic cuff system serves the dual purpose of redirecting the stirrup strap to initiate a figure-eight around the ankle and applying circumferential compression around the distal fibula and tibia to help stabilize the distal tibiofibular joint. The inside of the brace is then covered with a comfortable lining (not shown in the image on right) for a perfect fit.
Features & Benefits:
The MedSpec ASO EVO ankle stabilizer is indicated for chronic or acute inversion or eversion ankle sprains, syndesmotic ankle sprains (high ankle sprain), medial or lateral ankle instability, and subtalar joint instability.
Each ankle brace is sold separately. This support will fit either a right or left ankle. Available in Black or White and sizes X-Small to XX-Large. To clean your brace, machine wash on a gentle cycle with no bleach and air dry.
For the best fit and support of your new MedSpec ASO ankle brace, please follow the following sizing information.
Measure your ankle circumference using a flexible tape measure and using the picture as a guide. Measure the circumference from the top of your ankle around to your heel then find your size using the chart below.
If you are in-between two sizes, remember that ankle braces are designed for a snug supportive fit and you most likely would gain more support from the smaller sized brace.
|ASO Brace Size||Ankle Circumference in Inches||Ankle Circumference in cm|
|X-Small||10 to 11"||25.5 to 27.9 cm|
|Small||11 to 12"||28.0 to 30.5 cm|
|Medium||12 to 13"||30.6 to 33.0 cm|
|Large||13 to 14"||33.1 to 35.6 cm|
|X-Large||14 to 15"||35.7 to 38.1 cm|
|XX-Large||15 to 16"||38.2 to 40.6 cm|
As an alternate method of sizing, you may use your shoe size. Use the following shoe size table as a guide only, as the best brace fit will occur using the ankle circumference measurements above.
|Men's Shoe Size||6 to 7||7.5 to 9||9.5 to 11||11.5 to 13||13.5 to 15||15+|
|Women's Shoe Size||5 to 6||6.5 to 8||8.5 to 10||10.5 to 12||12.5 to 14|
Q. What's the difference between the ASO and ASO EVO ankle braces?
A. The ASO is MedSpec's best selling lace-up ankle brace that is used by individuals and athletes worldwide. The ASO EVO is a newer version of the ASO Ankle Brace that has the figure 8 straps built into the inside of the brace. When you tighten the straps it tightens closer to the skin to provide additional support.
Q. Are the MedSpec ASO EVO Ankle Stabilizer and EVO Ankle Brace the same product?
Yes, they are the same product. Medical Specialties (or MedSpec for short) is the manufacturer of the ASO brand of ankle supports and braces. “ASO” is their brand of braces with a few different options and styles available under this brand. EVO is the specific option or style of ASO brace where the straps come through to the inside of the brace. It is the newer version of the original ASO.
