USA Volleyball is proud to announce a partnership with Ultra Ankle®, which has been named the Official Ankle Brace of USA Volleyball.
Developed by certified athletic trainer Rick Peters, Ultra Ankle braces are different from traditional braces.
Traditional ankle braces prevent ankle turning, which can lead to low ankle sprains. Ultra Ankle braces use revolutionary hinged-cuff technology to help prevent ankle twisting that can lead to high ankle sprains that can take longer to heal.
The deal to make Ultra Ankle an official supplier to USA Volleyball will run through the lead-up to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Ultra Ankle hopes to help U.S. volleyball athletes stay free from ankle injuries, especially during their most important tournaments.
“We are always looking for ways to help our athletes stay healthy while training or competing,” said USA Volleyball President and CEO Jamie Davis. “Ultra Ankle is an industry-leading brand in ankle-brace technology, and we are proud to be able to supply these braces to our athletes.”
“Ultra Ankle is thrilled to partner with USA Volleyball,” said Rick Peters, President and Founder of Ultra Ankle. “Our ankle braces were designed with professional athletes in mind, to provide unparalleled support without restricting performance, so athletes can perform at their best.”
