Using a two seatbelt system we get leverage of the talocrural joint lengthening the posterior ankle capsule. Using the handle application we get mobilisation with movement (MWM) of the tibia over the talus. The one stop shop for stiff ankles! View the video for correct use for the best results!
Remove the strap and handle from the undersurface of the TarsoPro
Place TarsoPro™ on a flat surface. Place the loop section on the ground and place your foot through the larger loop. Place your foot on the block underneath the red strap. Place the heel centered on the unit approximately 2 centimeters from the rear of the unit.
Tighten the red strap accordingly to be at the junction of the foot and the leg (over the talus neck). Feed the narrow end (small loop at the end) through the narrow slot in the distal end of the unit. place the handle through the small loop in the strap. Take knee over the foot to be at the limit of dorsiflexion.
Gently pull on the handle so the black strap is around the lower calf for some tension and sits on the lower leg muscles for comfort. The user then isometricaly attempts to lift the heel off the unit into the resistance of the red strap. At the same time, the user pulls with both hands on the handle (keeping the low back straight) on the black strap to pull the leg over the foot. Hold this for 30 seconds and rest for 30 sec. Repeat this 3 times then reassess ankle range of movement
It is required to dissipate ground reaction forces, jump maximally, squat deep and run injury free. Stiff ankles a primary cause low back pain in squat and deadlift movements. If you want to perform at your best, you need loose ankles to get yourself moving and remain injury free!

Stiff ankles are a common cause of poor squat depth and increased load on the lumbar spine.
Ankle sprains are a common sports injury but so are recurrent calf tears, achilles tendinopathy and stress fractures. Improved dorsiflexion allows for greater force attenuation
