Ankle Huggers Support Straps from the Seattle-based company Bodypoint aim to stabilize wheelchair users’ feet, while allowing controlled movement. The company notes that the support straps reduce joint stress by holding above the ankle, in an effort to greatly improve comfort and tolerance for positioning.
The company adds that the Ankle Huggers Support Straps are designed to provide outstanding fit and lasting quality with its patented Laminar Pad and proprietary webbing. The straps feature a patented reinforcement patch that offers enhanced strength between the straps and the pads.
To provide even pressure distribution, the pads are circumferential in shape. Additionally, the product features a side-release attachment designed for an exact fit. The attachment is also available in hook-and-loop closure for eased adjustment.
