Like fabric lace-up ankle braces, tape will lose about 70% of its support within the first 25 minutes of activity. If you tape your ankle joint in a static position, then start to run and jump the tape will immediately start to stretch and loosen.
Unlike taping, you can easily apply an ankle brace in seconds yourself. You don’t need an athletic trainer, rolls of tape and pre-wrap, or scissors to cut it off later. And since our ankle braces have a hinge and move with the natural motion of your ankle joint, the brace stays firmly in place and secure maintaining lasting protection for hours.
