Do they make your feet-shoes combination tight? I had a sprain from Badminton yesterday and I'm having a company sportfest tournament this coming Saturday, I don't know if I can make it
Do I need to wear the Aircast A60 for BOTH feet?

If your ankle injury is not properly manage, most likely it will be unstable and therefore, you will most likely predisposed yourself to another episode of ankle injury in the future. My recommendation is just skip the tournament and manage your ankle injury so that your ankle can heal properly and become more stable and stronger. With this, you can play and compete better another day.
During rehabilitation, the role of ankle brace is beneficial starting from the functional exercise stage. It is NOT TO BE USE during the acute stage and also during the rehabilitation stage where range of motion and strengthening physiotherapy is conducted.
The A60 ankle brace will be slightly uncomfortable at the beginning of wear but it fits nicely in the badminton shoes (i'm wearing a Shb 101mx). After a few tries, you will get used to it and you won't notice it is there anymore as it is very light. Depends at which ankle that is injured, you can use it at one or both ankle.

Ok. But technically you just need to use an ankle brace for an injured ankle right? I went to the doctor today and got some rehab and it improved significantly! I'm able to walk right now and that's one day after the injury only!
How do you compare the A60 and Airsport coming from the same manufacturer?
So when do you ONLY use an ankle brace, during Badminton games only?

I've used airsport previously before technology advancement in making lighter ankle brace and still has the same level 4 protection has improved thus, changing to A60. Airsport is bulky to compare to A60 and also heavier than A60.
I've been using A60 for 2 years already in ALL my badminton activities ( on court training, coaching and competition) and my non-badminton activities i.e jogging.

Great, I will buy the Aircast A60 then I'll try Medium size because my shoe size is 9.5.

Well, the reason I asked for LP as temporary support is because I need to play on Saturday. I already ordered two Aircast A60's but they won't be here until after 2 weeks. My ankle is in playable condition already but not 100% yet.
There are too many variety of LP Ankle supports

Fantastic, thanks very much for listing those sources.
"Conventional wisdom" says that ankle braces are best avoided unless you already have an injury that requires stabilising. It seems the evidence is against conventional wisdom here.

30 years ago, the idea of prophylactic benefit of using tape or brace as an ankle protection against initial ankle injury for athletes who has no history of ankle injury was not clinically understood as not much of research done.
As the understanding and knowledge about sports medicine has grown rapidly, similarly like the advancement in the technology of producing sports injuries related equipments, evidence based medicine studies in sports medicine has play an important role to provide the valuable clinical based information and guidelines to guide athletes and the public about the role and benefits of current sports injury related equipment i.e ankle brace.

Thank you very much
By the way, won't using an ankle brace make your ankle dependent on it making it more weaker?

1. Make your previously injured ankle weak
2. Reduce athletic performance
Attach is a published studies in 2005 done by a team of researchers from the Sports Medicine Institute, University Hospital of Munster, Germany for your references for the above issues.
