The Air ankle stirrup brace with an air pump is a specialized medical device designed to provide support, stability, and adjustable compression to the ankle joint. It typically consists of two plastic shells, known as stirrups, that encase the ankle on both sides. These stirrups are connected by inflatable air bladders. The brace is equipped with an air pump that allows users to adjust the level of compression and customize the fit according to their needs.

- Chronic Ankle Instability: Individuals with chronic ankle instability due to recurrent sprains may use this brace to improve stability and reduce the risk of further injuries.
- Sports and Physical Activities: Athletes and individuals engaged in physical activities that involve high impact on the ankle joint may wear the brace to prevent ankle injuries and provide additional support during sports.
