How to use the heat moldable foot plate.

1. Remove inner liner and outer shell (ES version).
2. Apply heat evenly to the area of interest using a heat gun. Heat molding the foot plate should be performed by medical professionals only. Do not use an oven, boiling water, or any heat source other than a heat gun. Do not heat foot plate to more than 300F as melting may occur. Do not attempt to heat mold any component other than the foot plate. If heated, the rivets will readily burn bare skin.
3. Manually form desired changes with gloved hands prior to cooling. Do not attempt to form components against bare skin.
4. Reheat and continue forming as necessary.
5. The foot plate will retain heat after heat source is removed. Allow sufficient cooling time prior to making contact with bare skin.

    • hey there,

      I've been a skateboarder for 8 years now and have had plenty of bad ankle rolls/sprains and now my ankles are so loose i can't even walk on a pebble without them giving one way.. Is this brace gonna allow me the movement to skate and still heal? I want to find the BEST protection and rehabilitation brace out there!!
    • Thank you for your question. The DonJoy Velocity will give you the maximum support and still be very functional. This is a popular brace among athletes and active people.
  • BOGo at 27/05/2014 1:12 PM
    • On the video I heard that a custom orthotic can be used with this. The answer to one question says a custom orthotic cannot be used with this. Please clarify. I need the orthotic for chronic plantar fascitis. Thanks.
    • Thank you for your question. The Velocity footplate is heat moldable and trimable. Since you are able to customize the footplate to your foot, you are able to wear it with an orthotic.
  • Colleen Klingenmeyer at 21/04/2014 11:19 AM
    • My daughter has been in the emergency room for ankle x-rays and in PT to strengthen her ankles. She has had 3 sprains this past school year. Does insurance ever pay for these braces? I would think this would be cheaper than emergency rooms and pt sessions, but I know insurances don't always work like that.

      Thanks
    • Colleen
      Insurance does pay for ankle braces, you would need a prescription from your physician and you can go through either your local DJO Sales Rep found here: http://www.djoglobal.com/contact-us/sales-rep-locator or call our insurance department directly at 800-548-3370. Just tell them which brace you would like and give them you insurance information so they can tell you if it is covered

    • I have traumatic arthritis in my ankle and am looking for a brace to ease pain of walking. What is the best choice?
    • Mike
      If youhave instability in your ankle then I would suggest the Aircast AirSport Ankle brace: http://www.betterbraces.com.au/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace This brace will give you compression and also has two stays on either side of the ankle plus a trap for added support. If you feel that you do not have instibility then I would suggest a aknle sleeve for compression. warmth and comfort such as the DonJoy Deluxe Elastic Ankle Support: http://www.betterbraces.com.au/donjoy-deluxe-elastic-ankle-support
  • JennG at 11/03/2014 3:01 PM
    • I have severe chronic instability in my right ankle and will be having the Brostrom surgery next week to repair and tighten tendons, etc. I also wear custom orthotics in both shoes. I've been looking at the Velocity since my injury in October, but my doctors have me in a boot and also the option of a brace she recommended that I don't quite trust. I can roll my ankle just standing in one place!!! I'm pretty certain the Velocity is my best choice, but my main question is will my custom orthotic fit on top of the foot plate? Also, can the top fastening strap be replaced if needed?

      Thank you in advance for your help!!
    • Thank you for your question. The foot plate is moldable, however is not designed to have an orthodic between your foot and the foot plate. There are no replaceable parts for this brace other than the soft accessories that would create a MS or ES support.
  • megan at 11/03/2014 11:33 AM
    • I have a high ankle sprain a/k/a tibiofibular syndesmosis. Would the Velocity MS be appropriate for this, or is there something better. I need to have flexion, so I can't wear a solid boot...
    • Thank You for your question. A velocity MS would be an excellent choice for you.
  • Mario at 23/01/2014 6:02 AM
    • Just wondering if I could wear these Ankle brace with a motocross boot?

      Thanks
    • You should be able to wear these braces in that boot
  • Jackson at 20/01/2014 11:46 AM
    • I am recovering from a grade 2 ligament ankle sprain. I play football in college. Is the Velocity Ankle Brace the best brace for football? I am about to start offseason workouts which will include lots of cutting, sudden stopping, etc on both basketball floor surface and turf. Which brace do u suggest is the best for that while offering the most support? Also can the velocity brace fit inside a pair of football cleats? Thanks
    • Hello,

      I suggest the Velocity or the Donjoy Stabilizing Pro. The Velocity is Rigid, the Pro is made of fabric has 2 stirrups that figure 8 around the ankle and is most similiar to having your ankle taped.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Mike at 14/01/2014 1:17 AM
    • I had ankle tendon surgery 3 months ago and was just cleared to return to sports, specifically basketball. As a 46 year old man I am looking for as much protection as possible while still allowing me to play. Which brace do you recommend ?
      Also, I see some braces need to have the foot plate heat molded, are you able to wear the brace without molding the plate?
      Thanks
    • Thank you for your question. The Velocity Ankle Brace will be the most supportive functional ankle brace we offer. The Velocity is offered in 3 levels of protection, light, moderate and extra support. If you are looking for maximum support and functional ability this would be the brace for you. You do not need to mode the foot plate but it is an option if you would like to.
  • Mary at 21/12/2013 11:04 PM
    • I am recovering from a severe high ankle injury with 4 ligament partial an one full ligament tear plus 2 bone bruises-calcaneus and tibia. Rehab going well, ready for more activity. Can I remove the velocity ES strapping as I improve and turn it into a lighter support brace? Like the MS and then just the shell. I am in for a long recovery but wondered if the MS can be adapted as I improve.
    • Thank you for your question. The Velocity when ordered with the extra support can only be converted down to just the shell. You can but additional soft goods to convert to MS for $12.99 on the following link. http://www.betterbraces.com.au/donjoy-velocity-ms-speedwrap-kit.
  • Eric at 12/12/2013 12:48 PM
    • I have broke my right ankle twice. First time 15 yrs ago playing football, rolled outward. Second time 6 yrs ago playing volleyball landed on somebody else's foot, tore ligaments, bone fragments away. Second required surgery. I was pretty good about wearing braces after first injury, but after 2nd I have been religious about both ankles being in braces for absolutely any activity. Just a few nights ago playing basketball I came down on someone's foot, rolled my right ankle bad enough it swelled/bruised/tender for a week now. Being injured while wearing the brace, made me question if there is something better out there. I've been wearing Aso braces that lace and have two figure 8 type straps. These braces have worked well for years with no major sprains until the other night. What brace would you recommend. I've been reading all about the rocket soc and velocity braces. Or is there something else you'd recommend? I want something so supportive that I'll blow my knee and break my leg before rolling my ankle again. Thank you in advance.
    • Eric
      The DonJoy Velocity is most likely going to be the best brace for you. It our most supportive brace and should be used by those who suffer chronic ankle sprains and someone like yourself who has had multiple fractures. It is a hinged ankle brace that fits into your shoe, but will allow you to compete in sporting activities. There are three versions to choose from: light support, moderate support and extra support. You might want to think about either moderate support or extra support..
  • Michele at 9/11/2013 4:09 AM
    • My son is required to wear a brace at all times while playing basketball due to constant rolling of both ankles causing severe sprains. He is 6'2, 211 pounds and wears a size 15 shoe. He has rolled his ankle in his previous braces but I want to know if this a) is the right brace for him and b) will accommodate his size?
    • This ankle brace is out most functional brace and provides maximum support. This brace is one of our best sellers for athletes. The large size will accommodate your son's shoe size of 14.
  • Adrian at 6/11/2013 8:55 AM
    • I broke the outer side of my left ankle a couple years ago but I tend to roll both ankles a lot. I'm very active year round playing football and basketball and I don't want to re-injure my ankle or hurt the other. I would like to know what's the best brace to get, I'm looking at the velocity ES and the A60. Which of these would be best or do you recommend something else?
    • The Velocity Ankle is our most rigid brace. Adding the Extra Support is going to be a good option for you. The A60 would be recommended for lighter activities, playing contact sports year round the Velocity will give you more support.
  • Ball out at 5/11/2013 6:12 AM
    • Would this brace give support for posterior tibial tendonitis dysfunction?
    • The Velocity is a rigid hinged ankle brace that has a foot plate that would go right under the arch of your foot so it could help with Posterior tibial tendonitis. Another possibility is our Aircast airlift PTTD Brace that is specifically made for posterior tibial tendonits disfunction in mind. Take a look at our website: http://www.betterbraces.com.au/aircast-airlift-pttd-brace
  • BirdX at 1/11/2013 12:28 PM
    • I play offensive guard for my highschool football team and I have been prone to ankle injuries on both ankles. A week ago I had an eversion sprain on my right ankle. The third time i rolled it in such a way in one season! I am unable to push off with the force i am accustomed to. I am much more concerned with the protection of the inner part of my ankle but most braces I have come across support inversion sprains. Would the velocity brace be the right choice for me?

      Also, would this brace be a better alternative to getting ankles taped under and over a cleat?
    • The Velocity ankle brace is our most rigid ankle brace. This is a good choice for injury prevention and to use during rehabilitation phase as well. It will be a personal preference to use in lieu tape. The Velocity brace will be easier and quicker to apply. It will not loosen up and is more rigid than tape. Thank you for your question.
  • CoachD at 31/10/2013 1:57 AM
    • Hello, I have an 8 year old son that has hypertonicity of his calf due to stroke, he is very active and plays competitive sports including baseball and tackle football. His ankle rolls really badly on the football field, particularly when he gets fatigued. I tape his ankle before each practice and game and have gone through at least 10 different braces this football season. This brace looks like it might be the answer but it doesn't appear to be available in a small enough size.

      Do you have an extra small size and if not can you share your thoughts on a good brace that will allow my son to stay active but protect that ankle?
    • The Velocity would be the best brace for your son but since he is not yet big enough to fit into one. Take a look at the DonJoy Rocketsoc. It has straps to lock the heel to prevent lateral ankle sprains and comes in a lace-up version as well. This brace can be used for acute and chonic ankle sprains and has a XS size if that is what you need.
  • vinny123 at 16/10/2013 3:10 PM
    • Recently in July i broke the outer part of my right ankle, fractured my fibula and tore the ligaments the length of my leg skateboarding. Had surgery with a mini Tight Rope put in my ankle. I'm trying to find a ankle brace that is good to surf in, that's durable in salt water, but that also provides a lot of support. Been looking at the Don Joy Neoprene Rocket Soc and the Don Joy Velocity ES.Which do you think is a better choice?
    • The Rocket Soc would be a good decision. The velocity provides good dynamic support however, the Rocket Soc being made of neoprene will provide the compression and support you need in the water. It will also be a more ideal fit when you don't have shoes on. Make sure it is rinsed out and air dried after each use. This brace will also fit well into a sneaker for your other activities, such as skateboarding.
  • Adam Robbs at 4/08/2013 11:11 AM
    • I broke my ankle and tore a ligament in June. I should be cleared for football in Sept. I have a plate and screw in my ankle. What brace would be best for protection stability and performance.
    • Hello Adam,

      I recommend after you have completed your Physical Therapy and have been released by your Athletic Trainer, you can use the Stabilizing Pro Ankle brace. It laces up and has 2 stirrups, it's very similiar to getting your ankle taped.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Jazmyn at 24/07/2013 7:43 AM
    • About 2 years ago I almost ripped my tendon in dance class I ended up having tendinitis. I had to wear a boot for about a month and they gave me the velocity brace ES to wear after, since I am also in Marching Band at my School. Band Camp started again recently and I noticed pain in my foot coming back. Should I continue to wear the velocity brace throughout marching season ? Will it help my injury ? I know it will give me support I need to not further injure my foot, but there is also a plastic part that pokes into and irritates my skin. Ive tried band aids. What would you recommend I do to prevent this from hurting me ?
    • Is your Velocity 2 years old? If so, it may be time to purchase a replacement liner, the pad on the inside of your brace.

  • Patty at 30/06/2013 4:47 AM
    • I have weakness in my ankles and have repeatedly sprained my left to the point where I really supinate when walking. I do rehab in water and on land, would the velocity MS be good...is it ok in a chlorinated pool. I also have some neuropathy and need a brace that doesn't rub or irritate my foot in a shoe.
    • Yes you can use the Velocity in a Pool, we recommend rinsing it with water after use in the Pool or Ocean.
  • JAMES at 29/06/2013 4:10 AM
    • Hello, my ankles have taken a beating playing soccer all of my life and I have always warn the canvas lace-up braces. Two months ago I broke my ankle in a game despite wearning my braces. At this point I cannot compromise functionality for comfort. Does your Extra Support version allow enough freedom of movement for soccer, and does it fit in a soccer shoe, which is typically thinner and tighter material than other sports? I recognize that some braces offer better movement, but as long as it is POSSIBLE to play soccer in the Extra Support version I will.
    • I recommend an ankle brace with lateral/medial supports. I suggest the Pro-Ankle Stabilizing Brace, and the Velocity. If you need mild support I recommend the A60.

  • Brian at 27/06/2013 1:58 AM
    • Trying to determing which would be better, need ankle support for recurring sprains but have to wear work boots which go just above to ankles . which would be better in that set up the Velocity or rocket soc?
    • I recommend the Rocket Soc if you need maximum support, the Pro stabilizing Ankle is similar to ankle taping with figure 8 straps If you are looking for something that is quickly strapped on, I recommend the Velocity.
  • Stephen at 19/06/2013 3:02 AM
    • Hi I've been having really bad ankle injuries due to different sports since 2010 and now I'm into the sport of wakeboard I've been injured again on my left ankle due to a bad fall.

(My size for the bindings are 9-10 us) if possible what size should I get? And if not what other braces would you guys recommend?

  • Brittany at 6/02/2013 10:23 AM
    • I recently got a an extreme 2nd degree sprain and I am looking for a stable brace. The doctor suggested that braces with a lace up had more support. I had been thinking about getting this brace, but during the video, the person was able to move their ankle to both sides. I was wondering if y'all had a brace that only allowed for forward and backward movement, but not sideways, to prevent another severe sprain.
    • Hello, Brittany -

      The DonJoy Velocity would be an excellent choice. All of our ankle brace are designed to prevent/support the lateral movement of the ankle as inversion sprains account for a majority of ankle injuries. The Velocity would be considered our premier product in ankle brace support.

      We encourage you to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251 if you have further questions.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • Luis Plascencia at 21/11/2012 8:40 AM
    • I broke my fibula two months ago, in the lower part by right above my ankle. I got surgery and had a metal plate and screws. Will this brace help me prevent further injuries, i play football and im a cornerback. Im hearing good feedback from this but is this good for me?
    • You are correct, the DonJoy Velocity is the one most highly recommend for return to play for football. There are 3 types of Velocity braces and since you are post-surgical, we suggest you go with the DonJoy Velocity ES (Extra Support) which provides the highest level of support of all 3.
  • Rebecca at 9/04/2012 10:16 AM
    • I have subtalar joint arthritis that is contributing to tendonitis in both ankles. I have orthotics that I wear and also some ankle braces, but I don't think they are helping enough. I am in constant pain. I am a nursing student on my feet alot and need the best support I can get. Is the Velosity the best? I want it to be comfortable, but above all provide extra support. It does not take much for my ankle to turn.
    • Hi Rebecca,

      The Velocity ES is the most supportive ankle brace we offer. If you are looking for maximal protection, it is the right brace to choose.

      Have a nice day.
  • Paul at 6/12/2011 4:10 AM
    • Hello,
      I sprained my left ankle playing volleyball by rolling it laterally after landing on an opposing player's foot. I've tried on the Donjoy Velocity ES, but found it took up too much volume in my volleyball shoes. Will the Donjoy Velocity MS have the same volume issue, or is there a better brace you can recommend? Thanks.
    • Hi Paul,

      If you still have the Velocity ES, you can remove the bottom portion of the speed wrap to see if you like the fit better. The MS version is the same as the ES with less softgoods materials, thus providing moderate versus extra support..

      If you have additional questions, please call 1-800-553-6019.

      Have a nice day.

  • Hector at 1/08/2011 8:47 AM
    • A little over a year ago I had a bimalleolar ankle fracture with an ankle dislocation. I had surgery and had two plates and numerous screws put into my fibula. I have regained about 80 percent of the strength in the ankle. I want to start doing more athletic activities, but I am a bit apprehensive as I do not want another ankle dislocation. Is the Don Joy velocity brace perhaps be helpful in preventing another ankle injury. I do everyday activities with no support fine with no pain. Also does the foot plate need to be molded? Thanks.
    • Yes, this brace would be the best product for your condition. The foot plate is heat moldable but not required to wear the product.
  • Peter at 31/07/2011 11:48 PM
    • Hi, I am looking for a brace I can use for cycling. I have no strength in my ankles/feet to spush down on the pedals due to a spinal injury. I am looking for a brace that will stop my foot moving up and down but still fit inside a shoe. Holding the foot at 90deg to the leg would be perfect by not essential. Do any of your products do this?
      Thanks
      Peter
    • It sounds like you are looking for an AFO - Ankle Foot Orthosis which holds your foot at a 90 degree angle. This is a prescription item that your doctor would need to order. This can be done through the local rep representative which can be identified with your zip code.
  • P C at 9/07/2011 2:22 AM
    • Does the ES model have the same foot plate as the MS model?
    • Yes the Donjoy Velocity ES has the same footplate as the MS. Should you have any other questions please let us know.
  • John at 26/04/2011 12:21 PM
    • I recently broke my fibula right at the Lateral malleolus level. The break was clean and did not require surgery. I have been in a walking boot since 1 week after the intial break. The doctor said the joint was stable and surgery and a hard cast would not be nesscary. I have 2 more weeks left in the walking boot but regular check ups to the doctor have all had great results. I will be getting back into regular shoes in two weeks and I will be going to Europe the following week. I want to know what ankle brace would be best for protecting me from more swelling and injury while in Europe. I am still young at 25 and hope for a quick recovery I just want to prevent any accidents while the bone is still weak.
    • Hey John,
      Considering the extent of your energy and the amount of activity you will be doing while in Europe, I would actually recommend the Aircast Air-Stirrup. It will be bigger and bulkier, but it will also be stronger and more supportive. The aircells lining the inside of the brace will also help to keep swelling down which will be useful during long periods of walking. This is a brace you would wear for an additional 4-6 weeks after the boot, and then you would be able to buy a more functional brace for higher level activity.


      Thanks
  • Rose at 26/04/2011 11:59 AM
    • I have an ankle that is torn and turns inward when walking, extreme pain. The ankle brace dr gave me a year ago was the donjoy surrournd FLOAM and it was very uncomfortable and I have gone thru three in a year as the cloth piece underneath kept ripping. I saw the Velocity and was thinking it will give me better support and be more comfortable....am I correct? I can't check with my dr anymore as I have no health insurance to see him....also, can you wear it with sandals in the summer? I will need my ankle reconstructed when I do get insurance. Please advise if you feel this is an adequate brace before I spend $85.

      Thank you very much, I appreciate your input!
    • Hey Rose,
      The Velocity does not provide as much support as the Surround Floam. However, the Aircast Air-Stirrup is of a similar design and usually thought to be more comfortable and provides as much stability as the Surround Floam does. Also, with the air stirrup you can buy replacement heel straps so you don't have to worry about buying a new brace every time that strap wears.
      As far as wearing sandals, considering your level of injury I couldn't imagine any doc allowing you to wear sandals. There is no support in sandals, and it wouldn't matter which brace you were using, the risk of injury is too high to allow you to wear shoes without support. Tennis shoes or sneakers are your best and safest option. I hope this helps.


      Thanks
  • Tuan at 21/04/2011 1:02 AM
    • My son is 14 and plays for a U14 premier league soccer team. He injured his right ankle about 4 weeks ago. He is ready to play again but needs a really good ankle brace. Please recommend the best one for him. He was slide tackled by an opponent and had a severe case of sprained on the outside of the ankle. X-Ray shows that he also may have a micro fracture at the growth plate.
    • Our most semi-rigid and most supportive ankle brace is the Velocity ES. I would suggest getting this. It will provide him the most support while allowing him to still be active and proceting the ligaments in that area.
  • Robert at 6/04/2010 3:22 AM
    • I'm not sure what version of this brace I should get...the DonJoy Velocity MS or ES. I play soccer and sprained my ankle awhile ago. My ankle is now healed, I just wear a brace to try to keep from injuring it again. What do you recommend?
    • The DonJoy Velocity MS Ankle Support is good for active people who need support, but want less material inside their shoe. The DonJoy Velocity ES Ankle Brace is for athletes that need maximum support and wear footwear that can accommodate the extra material. Both versions provide moderate to maximum support with ES version providing the most ankle support between the two.

    Best brace for unstable ankles!

    Reviewed by:
    I purchased one of these well over a year ago now and have used it most days. I have a herditory joint tissue syndrome - Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. While wearing the brace I have not dislocated my right ankle and can walk confidently down the street and enjoy going for walks in the bush. The brace also helps keep pain in my foot to a minimum when driving.

    My left foot is starting to cause trouble now too so will soon be getting a brace for it.

    I highly recommend these comfortable strong braces.
    Pros: Strong, comfortable, works well under my chunky orthodics.
    Cons: A bit wide for some shoes like sandals, need larger shoes to fit it (blunderstones work well)

    Fantastic Brace

    Verified Purchase
    Admittedly you can't really review the effectiveness of a brace until you roll your ankle in it, but I have worn a lot of braces and rolled my ankles a million times playing basketball and I can say that this is the best brace I have worn. It is a little odd at first because the brace is so light weight and you have so much range of motion front to back that you don't feel that it is substantial enough. But once you get on the court, you can tell the hard plastic sides provide maximum support right to left and the free range of motion straight ahead feels great. I would say you definitely have to wear high socks with them because the ankle clip will dig into your skin. If you have ankle problems playing basketball buy these. I got the max support versions for my right ankle after I rolled it badly (while wearing the standard laceup brace from the local sporting goods store). I then rolled my other ankle (again while wearing a brace but luckily not as badly) two weeks later so I went back and got another one for my left ankle. Highly recommend.

    Amazing!

    Injured both ankles years ago playing basketball. I don't play much anymore because I don't want to risk re-injuring them. Ordered a DonJoy Velocity ES and played last night with it on. I can attest that it would be very difficult to sprain an ankle with this on. It offers great protection. It's very comfortable too. I forgot I even had it on while I was playing. Very impressed, I just ordered another one for the other ankle now. Highly recommended.

    After some resistance to try the Velocity brace, 16 year old loves it

    Reviewed by:
    My 16 year old son plays competitive high school basketball and volleyball. He has rolled his right ankle a couple of times playing basketball, with the latest sprain sitting him out for six weeks. After much resistance to even trying the Velocity Brace on inititially (he thought it would be too bulky and restrictive), it is now his go-to support brace of choice. Recently during his last basketball game, he tweaked his left ankle (his right ankle was protected with the Velocity Brace). After a few bags of ice on the previously uninjured left ankle, he asked me to purchase a left foot Velocity Brace. That's the best kind of review I could ever post!

    And, by the way, I'm buying this second brace from Better Braces because of their great customer service. Experienced some trouble during their transition to a new system a few months ago, but other than that, they've been great to work with.

    Great Brace

    Reviewed by:
    My son was injured playing AAU basketball and was told to wear an ankle brace. We bought an off the shelf brace and he reinjured himself 2 weeks later. Finally went to an orthopedist who recommended the Velocity ES brace. It has been great. No more injuries because you cannot roll the ankle wearing it.

    ES

    Reviewed by:
    i Purchased the DonJoy Velocity ES version ankle support and all i can say is wow. very comfortable and absolutely no way of rolling your ankle. like the review above it is a bit bulky but not to bad. still have free range of movement (with exception of side to side to prevent ankle roll overs) and very comfortable. 5 Stars.

    Best brace on the market

    Reviewed by:
    I play soccer at the collegiate level, and this brace is outstanding. Not only is it comfortable, but it prevents any chance of your ankle rolling. It is a little bit bulky, but it's light and still lets you move regularly.
