Basketball is still considered a sport that, in contrast to football and handball, is non-contact. Even comparatively light touches are often rated directly as foul play by the referees and penalized accordingly. However, anyone who now assumes that injuries are less likely to occur as a result of largely avoiding physical contact is wrong.

Even though basketball is non-contact, there are sometimes very serious injuries in basketball. The ankles are mainly affected. With The BetterGuard, however, you can significantly reduce the risk of ankle injuries in basketball .

Daniel "Booby" Gibson on The BetterGuard

"My career in the NBA ended early due to recurring ankle injuries. In our game, they are inevitable. That's why I'm excited to represent The BetterGuard, a product that helps ensure others don't have to go through the same experiences I did.

The fact that the bandage offers such a high level of comfort makes it perfect for use in professional sports. Because as an athlete you want a product that doesn't limit your performance."
