Push Ortho Aequi Ankle Brace £83.53
The Push Aequi is an effective ankle orthosis (also know as an ankle brace or ankle support) which strikes the balance between efficient mechanical support of a disabled ankle and great wearer comfort.
The Push Aequi is an effective ankle orthosis, which strikes a balance between efficient mechanical support of an unstable ankle and good wearer comfort. The rigid support is situated exclusively on the medial (inner) side of the ankle and has a cavity for the malleolus. The lateral side is made from preformed foam, which easily adapts to the individual anatomy.
The bracing material is constructed in such a way that it is very rigid in the centre, becoming softer towards the edges to ensure a good fit and wearer comfort. The orthosis is fastened by means of a diagonal strap. The elastic straps apply pressure around the ankle.
The Push Aequi can be used in the functional treatment of ankle injuries and as a long term support in cases of chronic ankle instability.
The inversion/eversion movement (inward / outward movement of the foot) is restricted while plantar/dorsal flexion (bending and stretching) is allowed, for adequate freedom.
This means that no inhibition is felt during normal walking and running. The numbers on the straps make fitting the orthosis simplicity itself. The Push Aequi is worn over the sock, and optimal stabilisation can only be achieved if it is worn with a closed (lace-up) shoe.

My son uses this as he has suffered a stroke and has foot drop. This brace is a wonderful product. It keeps it’s shape and the assistance it provides for the foot for a very long time. It looks sleek and sporty so a lot of people have thought my son had a sports injury. This makes him happy as he doesn’t want to be seen as someone with a disability. The service provided is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for the team.

I have used one of these braces for the past seven years. It has held up really well and allowed me to run approximately 1000K a year. It feels comfortable.
I recently bought a replacement as it was beginning to look worn. The replacement looks to be of the same excellent quality.

A flail chest occurs as a result of a trauma to the chest, leading to at least 3 ribs becoming fractured or broken, close together, with pieces of bone detaching from the chest wall. These segments of bone start to move independently of the chest wall and in the opposite direction because of lung pressure. The damaged rib cage prevents the lungs expanding fully, in this area.
Ribs surround and support the chest, protecting the organs in the thoracic cavity, the heart and the lungs. It forms part of the respiratory system, allowing inhalation and exhalation. The human body has 12 pairs of ribs (24). The space in between the ribs is known as the intercostal space.
The first seven pairs are true and attach to the costal cartilage and the sternum. Ribs 8, 9 and 10 are referred to as false ribs, and they attach to the costal cartilage of the sternum and the last 2 are floating ribs.
A flail chest is a life threatening condition and medical treatment must be sought immediately if damage to the rib cage is suspected. If fragments of bone are left floating around the chest cavity they could potentially damage the heart and lung tissue.
Flail chest is a common cause of death in the young and the old.
It is vital that medical treatment is sought immediately to prevent the condition becoming life threatening. A chest x ray will help identify a flail chest. Further evidence of a flail chest can be identified through bruising to the chest and punctured blood vessels.
As patients with flail chest are susceptible to pneumonia and complications arising from damage to the lungs and heart, medical treatment focuses on trying to prevent these from developing.
