 Medical specifications

Ankle support with stabilisation strap system

Levamed active is a support with stabilizing strap system. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the ankle joint and only on unbroken skin.



Features

Product benefits

  • Individually adjustable and removable strap system with elastic and inelastic sections → Additional hold and stabilisation, „protection“ against twisting (supination)

  • Massage effect by the integrated silicone pads → Reduction of swelling (oedema, haematomas)

  • Proprioceptive compression → Guidance and stabilisation of the joints


How does it work?/Mode of action

Due to the interaction of the compressive knitted fabric, silicone pads integrated on both sides and a novel strap system, the brace serves to stabilize the ankle. The brace itself causes a massaging effect which promotes circulation, thus accelerating the reduction of swelling and bruising. The strap system supports the body’s own stabilization and provides extra support, similar to a tape bandage. The Levamed active brace is thus suitable for preventive protection against injuries caused by twisting of the ankle, especially during exercise, when the muscles become fatigued.
The brace achieves its greatest effect during physical activity.

Donning/fitting instructions

Attach one end of the strap, which is marked with "'' to the back of the brace.
Now insert your hands in the brace from the top on both sides.
Then pull the brace over your foot until the heel part is properly seated and the silicone pads are positioned around the ankle.
Now guide the strap diagonally downwards across the instep.
Then guide it under your foot and position it so that it is centered under your foot.
Now fasten the short inelastic strap above the ankle onto the designated area"'. (If necessary, the length of the strap can be adjusted. To do so, shorten the strap that is pinched in the hook and loop fastener piece.)
Then tighten the elastic strap in the form of an “8” diagonally across the instep, around the leg, and back to the front, and fasten the strap in the area with hook and loop fastener ''.

Wearing directions

In general, the brace can be worn all day. However, this should be done according to your comfort. During longer breaks (e.g. prolonged sitting / road trips, sleeping), the brace should be removed. If excessive pain or discomfort occur during wearing, please remove the product immediately and contact your physician or medical care business.
