Designer Ryan Moeck set out to ‘discover a method/product/system to eliminate sprained ankles in Basketball’. The concept below is just one of his many early concept ideations –
‘This is a portion of the first part of my design exploration at the University of Washington as I was reviewing the medical literature on ankle injuries. I am currently working on other concepts that are quite different in direction and scope from what I present here. For more information, please see my blog post.‘ – Ryan
This particular concept has ‘improved built-in bracing’ and a higher cut to increase surface area for better ‘ankle lockdown’. So far from what I’ve seen, Ryan’s going all out and I can’t wait to see this project develop further.
