Silipos Malleolar Ankle Ankle Sleeve
Swelling around the ankle area can cause all sorts of problems when it comes to being able to support the limb without running the risk of aggravating the problem. It is important to find the right level of support that will aid your recovery. The Silipos Malleolar Ankle Sleeve is designed to do just this - supporting the limb while helping to reduce the swelling.
Who Can Benefit from the Malleolar Ankle Sleeve?
The sleeve is designed for people who are suffering from swelling around the ankle. The sleeve provides mild compression to help reduce the swelling while supporting the limb and therefore providing comfort and stability for the ankle and the foot.
The sleeve is designed to be worn with a number of different types of footwear. This include:
- Athletic Footwear
- Ski Boots
This makes them appropriate for supporting the ankle regardless of what sort of activity you undertake. If wearing a ski boot, for example, the sleeve will help reduce the discomfort worn due to the compression being placed on the swollen area.
As the sleeve can be worn when undertaking sporting activities, it is important to note that it is washable. It is also reusable so support can be applied whenever it is required.
Features of the Malleolar Ankle Sleeve
The Malleolar Ankle Sleeve is designed with two gel pads situated on either side of the sleeve. These rest on both the medial and lateral malleolae to ensure the comfort and compression is being applied to the correct read of the foot. These gel pads are designed to provide moisture for the skin while cushioning the area, promoting healthier skin and reducing the risk of developing other conditions.
Not only does the sleeve help to compress the swelling, it also acts as a cushion for the ankle. This prevents pressure, friction or abrasion from aggravating an already tender area, especially when wearing footwear that extends up over this area.
The pad is latex free and hypoallergenic. It is also available in one universal size to fit most users.
