Bio Skin® AFTR™ Ankle Brace with Gel

The Bio Skin AFTR Ankle Brace with Gel provides support and stabilization for the non-operative and post-operative treatment of many foot and ankle pathologies. Brace includes medial and lateral plastic stays as well as figure-8 stirrup straps to limit movement in the ankle and hindfoot. The AFTR is made from Bio Skin Material so it contours to the anatomy during normal volume changes following injuries and surgery. Bio Skin is hypo-allergenic, breathable, and thin.

Bio Skin's® AFTR™ Ankle Brace with Gel is an excellent choice for treatment immediately after an ankle sprain. The medical-grade compression and gel pads around the ankle will reduce swelling and pain to facilitate a quicker return to activity. The stirrup straps provide stability to protect the ankle during the early return to mobility. Our unique material is breathable, hypo-allergenic, and easily contours to the shape of your foot.

Indications: Peroneal / Post-Tib Tendon Repair, Lateral Ankle Repair, Fusions: Midfoot, Hindfoot or Ankle, Total Ankle Replacement, Ankle Sprains, Bunionectomy, Forefoot Procedures, Hindfoot Arthritis

Benefits of Compression

We understand our products are being used by people who want to be active, so we have designed materials that provide excellent compression without limiting activity. Bio Skin® is a unique, patented material designed to provide high-level compression without creating any discomfort. Bio Skin is thin and gives radial compression so it conforms nicely to the curves of the body. Bio Skin is also breathable, so perspiration evaporates right through it, and is hypo-allergenic so you don’t have to worry about skin reactions. These characteristics make wearing Bio Skin products a surprisingly satisfying experience.

Revolutionary, Micro-Thin, Bio Skin

The Family of Bio Skin Materials have a tri-laminate design to dramatically enhance comfort and wearability. It is constructed of Lycra on the inside and outside with a thin polyurethane “SmartsSkin” membrane in between. Yet, it is only 1.05mm thick and much stronger than neoprene and other fabrics used in orthopedics.

SkinLock Anti-Slip Mechanism

The SkinLok characteristic is one of BioSkin’s greatest assests and most unique qualities. When the skin begins to perspire, the SkinLok feature activates and increases the coefficient of friction between the material and the skin. This increase causes the brace to stay more firmly in place, even during heavy activity, while still allowing perspiration to evaporate through the material.

Radial Stretch- Contours to the body shape

Bio Skin material stretches in all directions and contours wonderfully to the body. Bio Skin 4-Way, radial stretch qualities allow maximum clinical level compression to the joint, while offering maximum comfort. Bio Skin stretches to fit the shape of the body.

Breathability- Air and perspiration release

Bio Skin material is specifically designed for orthopaedics and sports medicine – providing maximum compression and maximum comfort. Breathability is imperative for healthy skin and maximum comfort. Bio Skin allows natural body temperature regulation.
