THE ALL NEW R3
The Best Way to Stay in the Game
...is to never get hurt in the first place. Protekt Motion’s breakthrough R3 Ankle Support System comfortably protects you from the most common injury in sports: the ankle sprain.
No injury occurs more often than the lateral ankle sprain.
In high-risk sports like volleyball, ankle-related injuries are all-too-common. What’s more, research shows that many athletes who suffer a lateral ankle sprain will go on to experience chronic ankle instability, a condition that may impact performance for years.
While most athletes choose the R3 for its comfortable fit, surprising light weight, and shoe integration, it’s the science behind the dynamic design that gives you the protection you need to perform. Ankle roll resistance is the most important factor in ankle support and protection, and no brace protects you better than the R3. The strut’s dynamic response to lateral ankle roll creates a range of motion “end block” designed to divert force that prevents or minimizes injury in that critical “split second.” This “roll resisting reflex” is engineered to function for optimal protection without compromising the ankle’s full, natural range of motion.
The All New R3
Better Protection = Better Performance
It’s simple. You can’t win if you don’t finish. Tens of thousands of athletes are sidelined every day by ankle injuries, injuries that can take a full year to completely heal. The breakthrough design of the R3 System is changing that, with the innovative R3 Brace leading the way.
David Rubio, Head Volleyball Coach University of Arizona
Athletes hoping to play at the college level need to think of ankle braces the same way they think of a pair of shoes, socks and knee pads.
We’ve already seen the R3’s ability to protect our kids. I love the science behind this brace. It’s why it works best and why it’s my brace of choice.
Doug West, PhD, ATC, Head Team Athletic Trainer
The R3 is a difference maker with the potential to vastly improve ankle protection.
This new support system can be applied in many variations and has unique characteristics for lateral ankle stability. I've used with ankle concerns, including high ankle sprains, filling an important void in my arsenal.
Proprioception: Your Sixth Sense
Proprioception may not be a word you are familiar with, but you’ve been experiencing it your entire life. Think of it as a sixth sense. Simply put, proprioception is the sensory information you get from your body. Proprioceptors in your inner ear and your muscles, tendons and ligaments send your brain the information it needs about the position and movement of your body. Ideally, your proprioception will keep you from rolling an ankle past its safe range of motion (where injuries occur). Enhance your proprioception and you will in turn enhance your athletic performance.
BREAKTHROUGH SCIENCE & DESIGN
Roll Resisting Reflex
The R3’s design is built around a roll resisting reflex, the dynamic response to lateral ankle roll, diverting force via the patented strut and strap system. It provides three times the protection of standard braces or tape, so you can push harder and stay healthy.
THE PERFECT FIT FOR YOUR BODY
How To Fit Your R3
Unlike other braces on the market, the R3 comes in 4 size options to ensure you get the fit you need for unmatched protection. To give you the perfect fit and feel, simply measure around your ankle from the apex of your heel to the top of your foot.
