Pre-Inflated Air Cells
The Aircast Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace features two pre-inflated, overlapping air cells (distal and proximal) to provide support and produce graduated compression while you walk around. This helps reduce oedema (i.e. swelling which is caused by fluid trapped in your body's tissues) and helps accelerate rehabilitation of ankle sprains. The support is anatomically designed to help immobilise the area and limit any pain you're experiencing as a result of the condition.
The twin pads on either side of the brace work together to prevent rollover and provide pulsating compression that reduces swelling and improves blood flow and circulation.
Comfortable Fit Inside Most Shoe Styles
Designed and manufactured against a streamlined and refined designed specification set, the Aircast Air Ankle Brace fits perfectly inside a range of shoe styles, including:
- High-Top Trainers
- Casual Shoes

Documented Superior Performance
The Aircast Air Stirrup is one of the most popular braces around the world and the benefits of using it have been documented in over 100 medical and scientific journals. The incredible benefits of this brace make it the number one prescribed ankle brace by clinicians, healthcare professionals and physios!
Can the Air Cells Be Inflated Further?
Absolutely. If you find that your air cells lose bulk over time, simply take the inflation tube that is supplied with your brace and inflate the cells on either side further until a comfortable level of padding is achieved.
Designed to allow to you perform all the activities you enjoy, the Aircast Air-Stirrup Brace has a waterproof design. This allows you to wear the support in the pool or in the shower if your physician has told you to wear it at all times. After you get the support wet, it should be rinsed and allowed to air dry before you use it again.
