Extremely comfortable knitted support with a knobbed viscoelastic insert alongside the Achilles tendon to treat Achilles tendon injuries.
Lightweight, breathable anatomical knit will not retain heat and provides an excellent fit that is very comfortable to wear
Viscoelastic insert runs alongside the Achilles tendon leaving the tendon pressure-free and providing intermittent compression which reduces pain and swelling
Viscoelastic insert has soft, proprioceptive stimulating nodules on the inside as well as longitudinal grooves so that the upper tendon and muscle-tendon transition and nerve endings are stimulated by the wing-like insert
The silicone insert from above the back of the heel to the top measures 7" (size 4). The silicone does extend down on both sides of the ankle/heel and that measures about 8.5".
With movement, the nodules provide a massage that accelerates the healing process
Stimulation of the nerve endings in the muscle transitions heightens proprioception and improves muscle control
Integrated stretch zone knitted in the front of the support makes it easy to put on and take off
Promotes proprioception, thus heightening sensory awareness in the ankle for increased joint stabilization
Improved, more breathable fabric knit
Non–Binding Lightweight Knit
Also Available in Titanium
Commonly helpful with such conditions as:
Achilles tendon strain

Post-Achilles tendon rupture
