We are really excited to announce that FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics is the exclusive supplier of the Exo-L brace in Far North QLD. The innovative EXO-L ankle brace acts as an external ankle ligament.

This innovative product is suitable for all types of people and activities across Cairns and Far North QLD. EXO-L ankle brace is more secure than strapping tape, provides freedom of movement, protection from ankle injury and is a game changer for everyone who wants to avoid rolled and sprained ankles.

Cairns EXO-L Ankle Brace > Say Goodbye To Ankle Sprains

The EXO-L ankle brace is custom made for each patient, to meet your specific needs.

Ankle sprains are one of the most common lower limb injuries we see at FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics, so we know how painful and debilitating they can be. They are caused when your foot and ankle roll out, and in the instance of lateral ankle sprains, the ligaments on the outside of your ankle become injured. Ankle sprains can require a long recovery time, pending the extent of damage. The beauty of our new Cairns ankle braces is that they are preventative, so you can say goodbye to ankle sprains.

The Cairns EXO-L ankle brace cleverly imitates human anatomy in a way that is similar to the function of a seat belt in your car. The strap only tightens when the specific movement of ‘rolling out’ occurs and in turn, prevents any further movement in that direction. The brace itself weighs only 100g, making it ‘light’ to wear. It’s also easy and quick to put on and doesn’t impede your range of movement or negatively impact your performance.

The revolutionary EXO-L ankle brace is custom made for each individual patient. We do this by completing a Biomechanical Assessment in clinic, which includes a 3D laser foot scan, high speed video and gait analysis and full range of motion and muscle screening. From there, your brace is 3D printed to ensure perfect comfort, fit your shoes with patches for attachment and then finalise it with a fitting appointment.

At FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best products available and are excited to be the exclusive provider of the EXO-L ankle braces, north of Brisbane. Say goodbye to ankle sprains and book an appointment today.

Cairns Ankle Brace > Key Features & Points Of Difference For The EXO-L

The EXO-L ankle brace weighs only 100g.

  • Weighing 100g, the EXO-L is much lighter compared to traditional ankle braces.
  • As the brace sits outside of the shoe, it doesn’t take up any extra bulk; so no more having to go up 2 shoe sizes to fit a chunky brace.
  • Allows unrestricted ankle/foot movement in all directions, unlike traditional braces that lock everything up.
  • No more having to tape before training and games! Unlike other braces, you don’t need to tape underneath it. The Cairns EXO-L ankle brace does it all.
  • The cord and silver clamp are the same materials used for abseiling, so are very strong/reliable.
  • Completely custom made for your ankle based off a 3D scan before being 3D printed.
  • Multiple colour options available.
  • Quick and easy to put on – under 20 seconds!

Getting It Is So Easy > Make An Appointment Today

Stop wasting time and money on strapping tape, get the latest Cairns ankle braces and best of all – let your health fund foot the bill. To see if you are a suitable candidate for the EXO-L ankle brace, one of our friendly Cairns Podiatrists will run you through a Biomechanical Assessment. If an EXO-L brace is deemed suitable for you, we’ll take a 3D scan of your feet/ankles. This scan is then sent to the EXO-L team in Holland where your brace is designed using CAD-CAM software. This file is then sent back to Adelaide where your brace is constructed using a 3D printer. The approximate turn-around time for this process is 3 weeks. Follow the below easy steps to get started.

  1. Book an appointment with one of our highly trained Cairns Podiatrists for a Biomechanical Assessment.
  2. The Podiatrist will take a 3D scan of your foot and ankle.
  3. The brace is then 3D printed to ensure perfect fit to the ankle.
  4. Your shoes are fitted with special patches for the custom brace to be attached to.
  5. Once the brace arrives, you come in for their fitting appointment.
