You can try them, sure. The main benefit of those guards is not really to increase the strength of the ankle (because they don't), but to increase something called proprioception. That basically means that the guards will provide extra 'awareness' of your ankles so that your brain can control the ankle better. That's important, so it may work for you.
They can be worn for exercise, so you might try them and see if they help you. It's worth trying. Don't forget that you can also do exercise for the ankle, which may help you.
