Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace

Following an injury to the ankle, it's important that you begin walking as soon as you're ready to improve blood flow in the area to facilitate healing. The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace is designed with Duplex aircell technology to reduce swelling and pain, allowing you to get back on your feet faster.

The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace is designed for the first stage of recovery (i.e. immediately after an injury). If you are in the second or third stage of recovery following an ankle injury, we would recommend checking out the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace and the Airsport A60 Ankle Support respectively.

Which Conditions Is the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Brace Suitable For?

The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace is suitable for a range of conditions that can cause pain, discomfort, and swelling of the ankle. Suitable conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Acute ankle injury
  • Ankle sprains (graded one to three)
  • Chronic instability
  • Post-operative use

If you are unsure about whether or not the Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace is suitable for your condition, we would advise that you speak to your doctor or another medical professional. They will be able to advise whether or not this is the right brace for your own needs.

Which Ankle Sprain Grades Is the Air-Stirrup Universe Brace For?

Ankle sprains can differ in severity, and are generally categorised into one of three grades. The Air-Stirrup Universe Brace is suitable for ankle sprain grades one, two, and three, which can be identified as follows:

  • Ankle Sprain Grade 1: Sore ankle with slight swelling; your ligament may be overstretched
  • Ankle Sprain Grade 2: Prolonged pain and swelling; unable to bear weight on your injured ankle; some bruising from a partial ligament tear
  • Ankle Sprain Grade 3: Popping sound at point of injury; severe pain, swelling, and bruising; full ligament tear

If you feel you are suffering from one of the more severe ankle sprain grades, we would recommend you consult a doctor for advice. They will be able to provide you with the best plan for getting you back on your feet.

What Size of Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace Do I Need?

The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Support has been designed in a universal size. This means that you do not need to worry about obtaining any foot measurements before purchasing the ankle brace. The support can be altered by a professional to best fit your size and requirements.

Can I Continue to Wear the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace After the Sprain Has Healed?

The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Brace is designed to be worn soon after the injury has occurred to assist with ambulation such as light walking. If you would like to continue to support your ankle once the severity of the pain and discomfort has subsided, we recommend the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace to help you get back on your feet with some more regular physical activity. You can wear the Aircast A60 Ankle Support once you've fully recovered to prevent further injury to your ankle.

Can I Wear the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe On Either Foot?

The universal nature of the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Brace means that it can be worn on either foot. This way it can be worn again at a later date should you receive an injury on either ankle.

How Easy Is It to Put On the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace?

The Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace is quick and easy to put on. All you need to do is adjust the heelpad width, align the brace sides with your ankle (while wearing an absorbent sock or ankle wrap), secure the straps, and adjust the brace accordingly. Please see the diagram and the manual in the PDF below for more information.
