Sebastian is one of our most loyal product testers and his background is so interesting that we would like to share it.
“It all started with constantly spraining my ankle when playing soccer – always on the right side. I was 13 or 14 years old then. Of course, ligament tears were not an uncommon occurrence. At some point it got so bad that I would roll my ankle walking normally on a flat road. The ligaments of my ankle were completely exhausted from that point on.
At an early age I tested ankle bandages, but these offered no support at all.
After a torn ligament, I was prescribed a hard splint to stabilize my ankle. After the recovery, I would sometimes wear this braces during sports. However, this was also without success because I would still roll my ankle even with the rigid support!
Because of the constant ankle injuries I had to stop playing football and changed to volleyball. Of course, this is not a safe sport either, but I enjoy it.
I have been testing the products of Betterguards for over half a year now. I feel much better protected and I have not sustained a sprain since then. Furthermore, the system has a much higher wearing comfort than the stiff braces that I had previously used and yet I still have the freedom of movement that I need.
I’m looking forward to the latest product variants, and to wear them for sport and in everyday life. ”
Similar to Sebastian, many athletes are unable to participate in their desired sport because of injuries or fear of recurring injuries to the wrist or ankle.
