SCIENCE OF

THE R3

 

ANATOMICALLY DESIGNED

FOR ADVANCED PERFORMANCE

& UNMATCHED PROTECTION

INVERSION, THE COMMON "I ROLLED MY ANKLE" INJURY, ACCOUNTS FOR 85% OF ALL ANKLE INJURIES

50% OF ALL ANKLE INJURIES OCCUR IN SPORTS & FEMALES IN JUMPING SPORTS HAVE THE HIGHEST INJURY RISK

  • #1 ANKLE INJURY RISK FACTOR IS THE FREQUENCY OF JUMPS LANDING IN CROWDED SPACE

  • VOLLEYBALL LEADS THIS TENDENCY WITH HIGHEST % OF ANY SPORT'S TOTAL INJURIES

  • JUMP DISTANCES IN VOLLEYBALL ARE PRONE TO PRODUCE MORE SEVERE INJURIES

  • ANKLE PROTECTION THAT PREVENTS OR MINIMIZES INJURY, FOR BOTH ANKLES, IS IMPERATIVE

A FIT ANKLE HAS A NATURAL "ROLL RESISTING REFLEX" (R3) TO INVERSION.

THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF ANKLE SUPPORT IS ENHANCING AND PROTECTING THIS REFLEX.

The R3 diverts force away from at risk anatomy without restricting normal motion or athlete performance. Materials range from flexible to rigid and are limb specific, non-universal for optimal functionality.

the heart of the r3 system is an anatomical thermo-plastic strut

the r3 strut anchors to the crest of the tibia providing a solid fulcrum reflex base

inversion force resistance is the best predictor of ankle support performance

Inversion Force Resistance Testing

Biomechanical engineers created a system to test common methods of

ankle support for their ability to resist inversion force.

tests show that r3 produced more than 3x the inversion force resistance as conventional support

r3 combines an industry first mechanical end range of motion block with enhanced proprioception.
