Unfortunately the ankle brace was too small but on calling for return instructions Mary told me she would credit my account and I could keep or give away the brace. I tried to donate it to the local senior home but they are unable to take donations until the virus crises ends, I'll hang on to it until them or someone comes along that needs it and it fits. I was pleasantly surprised by the refund and not having to go through the hassle of returning it .. You have a very in-tune company and Mary was a great CSR..
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are thrilled to know Mary was able to provide great customer service. Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer! ~Rebecca, Vive Health~

I used this for my broken ankle as extra stability when I was not in the “boot”, and for the extra padding when I had to wear the boot, (Air-cast). I will continue to use it once I am released from having to use the Air-cast as it provides the comfort and support that I will need for awhile. Very well made and so easy to use. Thank you very much for this product!

Helps Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
I struggle with Cubital Tunnel Syndrome and a chronically dislocating cuboid bone... these help with both of those situations. I just hiked countless mountain peaks, to numerous waterfalls, 2 geothermal areas and 3 lava tube caves, and tons of walking elsewhere while visiting Iceland for 2 weeks... I didn’t have a single day of pain! :)
Jenn, thank you for the great review on our product. We are happy to hear that it helped you out so much while you were on your adventures! Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer! -Rebecca, Vive Health CS-
