Stay active and never sprain your ankles!

What do users think of the EXO-L?

Athletes continue using their EXO-Ls

Athletes are enthusiatic about the security offered by the external ankle and feel feel free to perform to their full potential with the EXO-L. They also indicate that the EXO-L should be used with a gradual build-up, to avoid creating pressure points.
After that the EXO-L can be used more and more intensively. After six months of use, over 95% of the research group indicate that they keep wearing the external ankle ligment not only for rehabilitation but also to prevent spraining.
More than six months of use

I often train for five hours a day. That's made easy with the external ankle.

"With EXO-L, I dare to go all out once again, because I know I won't hurt my ankle. Ball control is good now, my old brace got in the way"

The EXO-L is currently used within 36 different sports. The largest group of users are soccer players, who assess the EXO-L at an average of 8.3. This made a lot of specific requirements for different situations clear.
For example, tennis players often make extreme angles with their ankles during a game, so it takes time to find the right balance between support and freedom of movement.
