The dynamic ankle brace is a 3D printed brace with geometric mesh patterns and two layers of compression sleeves. The goal of the brace is to design a comfortable slim fit ankle brace that is competitive with current ankle support braces on the market. The geometric braces provided similar levels of inversion and eversion as market braces using different sizing. The braces were tested with a custom built testing rig and human participants proving 3d printed braces are flexible yet durable. User feedback indicates users desired stronger stitching of the braces overall.
