In the Netherlands alone, over six hundred thousand people suffer from an ankle sprain injury every year. Exo-L aims to solve this issue with a new type of ankle sprain prevention. The design is a patented invention, imitating the human foot anatomy. Exo-L is custom shaped to fit the ankle, reducing discomfort and bulkiness often experienced with conventional braces. The strapping mechanism ensures a perfect fit.
