InventHelp announces that two of its clients, inventors from Joliet, Illinois, have designed an accessory that would provide dancers with an increased level of protection against common dance-related injuries.

The ANKLE ANCHOR is designed to provide dancers with enhanced support and stability, which may bolster the dancer's confidence before a performance. Producible in various sizes, the invention would be suitable for wear during warm-ups and performances. Additionally, the ANKLE ANCHOR may be used by joggers and gymnasts.

The inventors were inspired to develop the ANKLE ANCHOR based on a professional background in dance. "As a dance instructor, I have watched many of my students hurt themselves due to inadequate support," one inventor said. "I wanted to create an effective way for dancers to protect themselves against injuries."

The original design was submitted to the Chicago office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
