Cost factor injury:
Ankle injuries are common in many areas of life and cost millions. In addition to the obvious costs resulting from absences from work due to injury, a substantial part of the costs is spent on the treatment and prevention of these injuries. Aids such as supports or orthoses, which are intended to assist patients during the healing process and/or prevent new injuries, are part of the standard equipment in everyday life and sports for many people.
The problem of conventional solutions:
Ordinary supports and orthoses, however, have clear disadvantages in their product characteristics.
Although orthoses provide protection, they are by no means comfortable. The hard material and bulkiness make them unusable in everyday use. Sport is often out of the question with them. As soon as the state of health allows, they are quickly removed.
In contrast, soft supports are comfortable to wear. Their material clings to the skin and does not influence our physical activity. Therefore they are a faithful companion in sports. However, soft supports have a clear disadvantage compared to orthoses: their soft fabric material offers no protection whatsoever against injuries.
The Betterguards System:
Betterguards has successfully developed a system that combines the positive characteristics of conventional solutions into a novel product - without any undesirable side effects. A high protective function combined with high freedom of motion. A real breakthrough in injury prevention.
