Ankle Brace

The Ankle Brace is made for astronauts readjusting to levels of gravity on Mars. The Brace is made from flexible nylon for a majority of the device. However, the four sections, which are cylindrical, that are designed to fit around the ankles are rigid ABS plastic. The bottom piece of the Brace is designed to snap into the top piece where the cylindrical sections at the ankles meet. The purpose of the Ankle Brace is to support the ankle joints of the astronauts as they accustom themselves to levels of low gravity on Mars after living in levels of micro-gravity for an extended period of time.
