After a long ordeal, Struck was not only able to heal his injury. He was also able to completely overcome the fear of renewed ankle injuries. Our innovative and intelligent ankle bandage The BetterGuard plays a decisive role in this.

This is due to the completely new structure of the sports bandage. Unlike traditional models, this new variant does not remain rigid. Rather, the newly developed bandage for your ankles works like a kind of safety belt. A multi-patented mini-piston is integrated inside the bandage, which precisely cushions and stabilizes in a sprain situation - and at least as well as a stiff orthosis, as the study comparison between conventional and our modern ankle bandage by Willwacher et al. (2023) shows.

In normal game situations, the mechanism is passive and not restrictive. In addition to maximum protection, this also gives you exceptional freedom of movement . No conventional bandage offers you such an effective interaction of functional advantages.
