Dr. Jeffrey E. McAlister and the AOSM team have partnered with KiSS Ankle Co. to provide the highest quality ankle braces for the athlete. Patients with acute and chronic ankle sprains or inversion ankle injuries are susceptible to continuous injuries, possible fractures and furthermore – arthritis. The down-under company from Australia has an innovative design and highly adaptable brace to elevate the pro-level athlete and the weekend warriors of Phoenix.
“Functional, active rehabilitation and lateral ankle reconstruction has just become ‘safer’ and more stream-lined with the KiSS Ankle brace,” states Dr. McAlister, Phoenix Foot and Ankle Institute Foot and Ankle Specialist. “My acute ankle sprains are able to get back on the court faster and without worry for a repeat event.”
Craig Hubbard, the founder and inventor, states “The Kinetic impulse Suppression System (KiSS) is the first brace designed with ‘medical intent’ and used during rehab to early mobilize acute injuries and provide ‘optimal loading’ for ligament and cartilage repair.” He goes on to say, “It’s a soft tape/brace hybrid, hand-made in Australia from kangaroo leather, that anchors on like tape, without adhesives, like a starfish anchoring onto a rock.”
Dr. McAlister and the AOSM team are excited to have teamed up with a technology that keeps our athletes protected. They are one of the only providers and national leaders in this technological space. Visit AOSM to learn more about the product.
