    As far as wearing for Badminton is concern, Aircast A60 is the king of ankle brace.

    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?

    My advice kevin, based from my own experience after going through multiple episode of ankle injuries is not to treat your ankle injury lightly. Regardless whatever nature of the injury is, if it is injured, what you need to do are, go for proper ankle injury assessment with the doctor, follow the RICE protocol and adhere strictly to the rehabilititation program outline to you.

    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?

    Research done in sports injury indicated that the benefit of wearing an ankle brace has both significant important role as a prophylaxis for the occurrence of an ankle injury and also the prevention of the recurrence of an ankle injury. Therefore, an ankle brace can be beneficially used both as an ankle protection for an athlete that has no history of ankle injury but fears the risk of getting one and also as an ankle protection against a recurrence of an ankle injury.

    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.

    Good luck then and make sure you order the right size as they produce both right and left separately. I'm using a black colored brace and i noticed England tennis star, Andy Murray currently using a white colored A60 ankle brace at his left ankle and it looks coolhttp://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...PkHuXPkMr_P2Q=.

    I'm not sure what LP ankle brace is worth buying however LP is another respectable brand in producing sports injury equipments. I think, rather you buy a LP ankle brace for temporary usage, why not just invest and buy aircast instead.

    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

    Well kevin, which LP ankle brace is best used for badminton also i don't know. Before i came across with A60, i've used Mcdavid 196 ankle brace then Aircast airsport and also Mueller Hg80 ankle brace. Never tried LP before. Either you need to try it yourself or ask anyone who plays badminton that bought and used it to make an inform decision. Never ask the LP salesperson what is best for you unless if he plays badminton and use it!...... and don't full agree with any internet reviews as you don't know wether they do really use it.

    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.

    Your welcome my friend.

    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?

    Wearing ankle brace DOES NOT:

    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.
